Jewish newspaper launched in Germany

    A Jewish quarterly aiming to "connect Jews with gentiles, Germany with the world" was launched in Germany this week.

    Its publisher just wants the world to know that Hitler did not succeed. "A lot of people think that… Germany is 'Judenfrei' - free of Jews - and it is not true," said German Jewish author Rafael Seligmann, 64. "It is not only a culture of victims. We have a vivid community. It is a shadow of what it was, but it blossoms again."

    His new English-language newspaper, Jewish Voice From Germany, went out to about 15,000 households in the US, UK, Israel and Canada.

    Several thousand are on sale at sites such as the Jewish Museum in Berlin. The paper costs three euros.

    An e-copy is also available, said Mr Seligmann, who financed the first edition with a combination of his own savings and advertising revenues.

    The paper explores topics such as the proposed banning of Germany's biggest far-right wing party; a plea for Israel to recognise Palestine; a hard look at the euro; and, of course, the question as to whether Jewish life has a future in Germany.
