In 1939 there were ten million Jews in Europe. After Hitler, there were four million, by 1997 this figure dropped below two million. Judging from this projection, Jews will become virtually invisible in European society over the course of the 21st century. This text presents a social and political history of the experience and fate of European Jews since 1945 and sheds light on the reasons for this demographic projection. The text explores the impact on Jews of postwar reconstruction, Soviet occupation, the Cold War and the collapse of communism. These, combined with the memory of Nazi genocide, the persistence of anti-semitism, the development of Israel and the Middle East conflicts, shaped the history of European Jewry in the second half of the 20th century as a story of irreparable loss and the prelude to an uncertain future.
