Speaking on

The Long Road "Home": Returning to Germany after the Holocaust.

This fascinating program will be on Zoom for just $10 per device.

Much has been written in recent years about the renaissance of Jewish Life in Germany which was primarily

caused by a major wave of immigration on part of Jews from the former Soviet Union. While our lecture will explore this phenomenon and its consequences as well, we first and foremost want to attempt to find an answer to the question why Jews were coming back to Germany after World War II. What motives could they have had to return to the "land of the perpetrators"? 

 

Join German Historian Anette Isaacs, M.A. as she traces back the long road home that led to a rebirth of Jewish Life in her native country. 

Anette Isaacs, MA, is a German Historian and Public Educator who has been presenting hundreds of programs on more than 30 different topics (all     pertaining to her native country's history, politics, and culture) in the Chicagoland area and in South Florida. 

Ms. Isaacs holds Master's Degrees in American Studies, Political Science, and History and is an adjunct faculty member at the lifelong learning departments of Oakton College, the College of Lake County, Harper College, the College of DuPage, and McHenry County College, all located in Illinois. She is also a popular instructor at Florida Atlantic University's OLLI in Boca Raton and in the past decade, has presented her programs at the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Skokie, at the YIVO Summer Festival and at the Chicago JCC. In February of 2022, Anette was the featured speaker at the Gross Family Center for the Study of Antisemitism and the Holocaust in Boynton Beach, Florida.
