This volume presents voices from a paradoxical community: the Jews of France, long assimilated yet more expressive than ever of their particular concerns. It includes the first accounts of French survivors of death camps; effects of Jewish migration from North Africa to France; and the legacy of existentialism for constructs of Jewish identity.
