This volume presents voices from a paradoxical community: the Jews of France, long assimilated yet more expressive than ever of their particular concerns. It includes the first accounts of French survivors of death camps; effects of Jewish migration from North Africa to France; and the legacy of existentialism for constructs of Jewish identity.
 

"Alan Astro?s wide ranging collection is essential for understanding French Jewish culture, and his multidisciplinary approach is particularly commendable."?Jewish Book News & Reviews
