Is the current Jewish population losing its cohesion and identity due to the Second World War?
This research examines differences in identity formation among generations of Czech, Slovak, French and Luxembourgish Jews who grew up either under communism or in liberal Western Europe. By gathering data, the aim is to create an international virtual library and cloud storage not only for professional educators, but also for the public.
My focus is on the differences and similarities within and between generations, and on the changing historical and political circumstances of both state communism and established liberal democracy that have shaped individuals’ consciousness and identity.
