A detailed look at Jewish life in Germany based on interviews with a broad range of German Jewish leaders. It offers an overview of how Jewish life has changed in Germany since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the subsequent huge influx of Jews and their families from the Former Soviet Union and the challenges this has thrown up.

Part of a four-paper series looking at Jewish life in east-central Europe since the collapse of communism, the Germany report says that the question of whether Jews in German should be sitting on packed suitcases "has been answered with a resounding 'no' by prominent members of the community". Yet the question of how safe Jews are in Germany remains alive and well.

The research was conducted by author and journalist Toby Axelrod, and was funded by the Rothschild Foundation (Hanadiv) Europe. An English language version is also available.
