RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 45630572 LA English T1 German reparations and the Jewish world : a history of the claims conference A1 Zweig, Ronald W., PB Frank Cass PP London; Portland, OR YR 2001 SN 0714651524 9780714651521 AB "German Reparations and the Jewish World has become a standard reference work since it was first published. Based extensively on archival sources, the author examines the difficult debate within the Jewish world over whether it was possible to reach a material settlement with Germany so soon after Auschwitz. Concentrating on how the money was spent in rebuilding Jewish life, he also analyzes how the reparations payments transformed the relations between Israel and the diaspora, and between different Jewish political and ideological groups. This revised and expanded edition includes material on sensitive relief programs from archives that have only recently been opened to researchers. In a new, extensive introductory essay Ron Zweig re-examines the reparations, restitution and indemnification processes from the perspective of 50 years later."--BOOK JACKET.
