While some Jews around the world associate Germany with the most tragic chapter in Jewish history, the nation has recently seen swathes of Israeli Jewish migrants arriving on its shores. Who are the community of Israelis who now call Germany home? Why did they select Germany? And what have their experiences been like integrating into this new culture?
