Exodus to Berlin: The Re. Laufer writes of the resurgence of the Jewish community in Germany, which began after the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, and the simultaneous rise of neo-Nazi, racist, nationalistic, and anti-Semitic violence. At the beginning of this century, Germany became the nation with the fastest-growing population of Jews in the world. Laufer informs us "this unexpected surge of Jews into a reunified Germany not only surprised both Jews and Germans, it occurred without much of the world noticing.

Since 1990, Germany has experienced a massive influx of Jews from the various successor states of the Soviet Union. With this book, the journalist and some-time travel essayist Peter Laufer analyses the phenomenon. As he notes in his preface (p. vii), many American Jews are uncomfortable with any Jewish presence in Germany, let alone the fact that the fastest-growing Jewish community in Europe is, in fact, in Germany

Exodus to Berlin: The Return of the Jews to Germany, Ivan R. Peter Laufer described himself to CA as "a creative nonfiction journalist and writer working in all appropriate media: print, broadcast, Internet. Much of my work falls into the broad category of social problems and their solutions. While at NBC News, I reported, wrote, and produced several documentaries that dealt in detail with crucial social issues.

In the years following the Holocaust, the Jewish community in Germany was tiny, decimated by the Nazis and shrinking fast as most survivors died or emigrated. But once the Berlin Wall fell, the German government invited Soviet-bloc Jews to come make a new life in prosperous and democratic Germany. Exodus to Berlin tells the story of that migration. Since 1989 more than 100,000 Jews have accepted Germany's invitation, filling Berlin and the rest of the country with a vibrant subculture. Germany now wakes up to synagogues filling for services, bagels and blintzes in new restaurants, and the mournful strains of Klezmer music in clubs and street festivals. Jews are finding sanctuary in Germany from the anti-Semitism, violence, and economic chaos that plague the former Soviet empire. But almost simultaneous with the first flow of Jewish immigrants, and stimulated by the failure of German unification to deliver promised prosperity to the former East Germany, neo-Nazis have been on the march in Germany, vowing to reclaim "Germany for the Germans!" More than a hundred murders and countless acts of vandalism are blamed on marauding right-wingers. Peter Laufer brings this current history to life through vivid narratives of events he experienced in Germany and dozens of highly personal interviews he conducted with the participants―Jews as they arrived at Germany's border, neo-Nazis who want to send those immigrants to Israel. Exodus to Berlin is a book of uncommon interest about one of the more unnoticed developments on the European continent. Illustrated with black-and-white photographs.
