"Germany on Their Minds"? : German Jewish Refugees in the United States and Relationships to Germany, 1938-1988 / by Anne Clara Schenderlein.

Publication | Library Call Number: E184.35 .S34 2014

This dissertation investigates the relationships between Germany and the German Jewish refugees who settled in the United States between 1938 and 1988. Using publications and records of refugee organizations in the United States and West German federal and municipal governments, in combination with oral histories, letters, and memoirs, this dissertation analyzes refugee discourses concerning Germany and interactions between refugees and Germans to show that refugees in the United States played a role in channeling Germany's democratic ambitions and German outreach activities, such as through the Foreign Office and municipal visitor programs. Such programs contributed, conversely, to a strengthening of German Jewish refugee identity many years after the end of the war.
