Germany: Facing the Past

Germany: Facing the Past

"Recommended. The progress of a "new" Germany is uplifting as many Jews have once again settled in their former homeland due to many special immigrant privileges, including guaranteed housing, resident permits, food/work permits, free schooling for children, and German-language lessons. However, extreme nationalistic politics still exist, and the NDP and neo-nazi culture are alive and well; so Germany may still have a long way to go." -EMRO Review
Germany's campaign against the anti-Semitic NPD party has been gaining momentum after a series of vicious race attacks. Both the Government and the right wing mob are reacting to the steady influx of immigrants into the country. Immigration from the former Soviet bloc has led to the revival of Berlin's Jewish population and, ironically, to Germany having the fastest growing Jewish community in Europe. Jews are being drawn back to Germany by the opportunities it offers for a new life and a chance to reconnect with their heritage. But the generous policies on immigration have fuelled racism and extremism among some young Germans who feel left behind by reunification and unemployment. Can Germany finally break free from the shackles of its past? Produced by ABC Australia. 04/07DE JSCA 20 min.
