For our work with post-holocaust dialogue groups it would be great if someone has information, resources, archives, etc. on the history of Jewish--German/Austrian post holocaust dialogue (or non-dialogue). Especially historical overviews of the last 50 years, and different perspectives - dialogue within Germany, US, Israel, religious groups, secular groups etc. If anybody can give me pointers, that would be greatly appreciated. Also - are there any books, articles, research on the special relationship of German Americans to the Holocaust legacy, German schools in the US - and interactions between the US German and Jewish communities during the last 50 years. Third - are there any historians interested in the follow up or accompanying of our work with dialogue groups between Jews and Germans, mainly 2nd Generation, but also first and third. Remarkable stories, details and lots of questions continually emerge. Please let me know if someone is interested. Fourth, the Theresienstadt Camp had a "Prominentenlager" which housed prominent citizens, sometimes as a special privilege. 99 of those wrote autobiographies for the Nazi Authorities while still in the camp. A (One) copy of the first volume has been found in Germany and there is passionate research being done on the fate of survivors after the war. Is anybody interested in helping with the publication and further research of this material ? The topic seems to fall through the cracks of identity since many of the "prominenten" were Christians and passionately patriotic. Fifth, any good books or resources on issues of remembrance/reconciliation in historical context - like 30year war, 100 year war England/France, France after Napoleon's defeat, etc. What models were used, what success ? Sixth, any stories, resources, or guidelines on how the descendants of Nazi criminals deal with their family legacy ? I would appreciate any help I can get. If anybody is interested in our work with the Institute for Models of Dialogue, Remembrance and Reconciliation or in the Newsletter of the INternational Conference of Jewish--German Dialogue Groups please send e-mail to Hanskolbe@aol.com Thank you Hans Kolbe, Director
