German Books Return to GermanyJuly 15, 2011
Here is a very nice story that I’d like to share with you. Source: Der Spiegel.
“German Jews who fled Nazi persecution to what is now Israel took as many books as they could carry. But their descendants, many of whom don’t speak German, are left with cratefuls of heirlooms they can’t read. Now the Goethe Institute [in Jerusalem] has started a project that sends the well-traveled books back to Germany — as teaching materials for students.”
