Haham, to be honest, I am not sure whether the German refugees from WW2 have really given up their hope to return to Eastern Europe one day. If one is following their annual meetings, one could get a very different impression.... However, the other point you make is very inte- resting. If I got you right, then you believe that many Germans could be afraid of a big Jewish population in Germany, because it might wake up some old ugly instincts...?? I am not sure whether that would really be true today, I guess the horror of the Holocaust is still much too fresh in the memory of the German people. Did you know, that the German governement is makin quite a few efforts in order to increase again the Jewish population over there...??
