Jewish Experiences in Eastern Europe, 1945-1968 @ Einstein Forum, Potsdam
Nov 11 – Nov 13 all-day

The Holocaust decimated Eastern Europe’s Jewish communities, but it didn’t obliterate them. Several million Jews were living in the Soviet Union and its newly expanded sphere of influence after the end of the Second World War. Their postwar experiences are often seen as an epilogue to the Shoah, or else portrayed as an interlude cut short by the communist regimes’ anti-Zionist campaigns and the renewed wave of emigration they caused. Fifty years later, this conference reconsiders Jewish experiences before 1968 and places them in the wider context of postwar European societies.
