Dan  Diner - Ritual Distance


A reflection on the difficult rapprochement between Germany and Israel

Fifty years ago, the Federal Republic of Germany and the state of Israel established diplomatic relationships – a first endpoint of a dramatic history that started with the Luxembourg Reparations Agreement between Israel and Germany in 1952.

In his densely told narrative, historian Dan Diner attempts to shed light on the deeper layers of that ambivalent reconciliation, especially the political and theological aspects of the discussion on the side of Israel only a few years after the murder of European Jews.

"Finally a truly readable book on the Israeli-Jewish relationship to German and the Germans. [...] Whoever wants to know more must read his book."

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
