With this volume, Barbara Honigmann gives us the stories of two very different women, and of their attempts to rise from the ashes of their former lives. The narrator of A Love Made Out of Nothing is a woman who leaves Berlin to start over as a student in Paris. But though she has escaped from her past and is finally living in the city of her dreams, she finds herself isolated and imprisoned, discovering that the life of an expatriate has its own loneliness and difficulties. Tied to her old existence by her complex relationship with a possessive and manipulative father, whose history of wandering from city to city and wife to wife casts a long shadow over her as she struggles to forge an independent life. Zohara's Journey tells the story of Zohara, a devoutly religious Sephardic Jew repatriated to southern France during the Algerian War. Having wandered from one French city to another with her husband Simon, an itinerant rabbi who claims to be the Rabbi of Singapore, she wants to believe that the family has finally settled in Strasbourg when Simon returns from a long absence and disappears with their six children. In her desperate efforts to locate her children and piece her life back together, Zohara comes to question the man she thought she knew, and a religion that has dominated both their lives. Honigmann's view encompasses the universal (and perhaps the mythical) as well as the autobiographical and social. In these two intimate novellas, she communicates in spare and elegant prose, both the terror and the thrill that come with starting over. Dense with imagery and emotion, these stories introduce a powerful new voice from Germany that speaks directly to the nature of isolation and, ultimately, to the necessity of self-reliance.

"Alter 1945, Jewish writing in German was almost unimaginable - and then only in reference to the Shoah. Only in the 1980s, after a period of mourning, silence, and processing of the trauma, did a new Jewish literature evolve in Germany and Austria. This volume focuses on the re-emergence of a lively Jewish cultural scene in the German-speaking countries and the various cultural forms of expression that have developed around it. Topics include current debates such as the emergence of a post-Waldheim Jewish discourse in Austria and Jewish responses to German unification and the Gulf wars. Other significant themes addressed are the memorialization of the Holocaust in Berlin and Vienna, the uses of Kafka in contemporary German literature, and the German and American-Jewish dialogue as representative of both the history of exile and the globalization of postmodern civilization. The volume is enhanced by contributions from some of the most significant representatives of German-Jewish writing today such as Esther Dischereit, Barbara Honigmann, Jeanette Lander, and Doron Rabinovici. The result is a lively dialogue between European and North American scholars and writers that captures the complexity and dynamism of Jewish culture in Germany and Austria at the turn of the twenty-first century."--BOOK JACKET.

This volume examines the politics of history and memory in Germany today through a review and analysis of seminal developments in the current discourse on 1933 – 1945. An interdisplicinary work, this book examines questions of representing the past from the perspective of literary studies, social psychology, film studies, history, and cultural studies. Themes include transgenerational memory and remembrance, the air war and German literature, commemoration and silences, transnational reconciliation, and historical consciousness in the German present. The collected essays make clear that as the current discourse contributes toward an historically informed, differentiated understanding of individuals’ roles in the Third Reich and World War Two, victim and perpetrator identities cannot be defined as exclusive from one another. The discourse emphasizes personal over collective experience and answers questions of responsibility and guilt on the individual level.

"Angels are the ultimate stranger. They come from another world and have a special place in the art of the Russian Jewish painter Marc Chagall (1887-1985). In My Life (1923) the young Chagall recalls one memorable night in Saint-Petersburg. Drifting into sleep in the corner of a room (all he could afford) he suddenly saw the ceiling open and a winged being, surrounded by light and blue air, hovered above him before disappearing through the ceiling again"--
