The Histories Penguin Classics. The Gulag Archipelago Academic journal article Shofar. Atina Grossman has written an exceptionally fascinating book about the first days, weeks, and months following the liberation of Germany and the Jews at the end of world war II. By examining hitherto little known but extremely valuable original sources in amazing detail, she sheds light on a period when Jews, non-Jewish Germans, and Allied forces often had to share quite limited spaces.
She reconstructs the ways in which different people lived through the liberation of Germany: everything from the varied reactions to the mass rape of German women by the Red Army to the first days spent by Jews who had newly emerged from hiding or recently repatriated survivors liberated from the Nazis' forced labor, concentration, and death camps.

She is especially intent on refuting the widely held beUef that Jews inhabited a self-enclosed collectivity, separate from that of the Germans. One should probably think of her argument in a methodological sense as well.
The book is concerned not only with the specific groups themselves, but also with the content of their concrete encounters. By juxtaposing them, Grossman can also lay bare the paradoxes and contradictions of the post-war era. So, for example, she contrasts the high birth rates of Jewish women with the high abortion rates for non-Jewish German women regardless of whether pregnancy among the latter had resulted from rape or not.
The erstwhile pride of German women had yielded, Grossman claims, to confusion, depression, and victimization.
