Israel National News: the “impossible position” of Coco Schumann

It was heartening for us to see this article in Israel National News, which comments on the “impossible position” of Jewish Holocaust survivors in the diaspora in relationship to their homelands. Coco Schumann’s story provides the valuable perspective of a German Jew who returned to Berlin after the war and thrived, though he did leave the country for several years in the 1950s because of a resurgence of Nazi sentiments. It’s important to remember that even when wars are over, factions remain and prejudices can fester.
