German Jews Are More Than Victims, New Community Chief Says

01/05/2011

BERLIN (JTA) -- Jews in Germany must stop emphasizing their role as victims and develop their positive Jewish identity, said Dieter Graumann, the new head of the Central Council of Jews in Germany.

Graumann, 60, told the Financial Times Deutschland in an end-of-the-year interview that while it is important to remember the Holocaust, Jews should not merely be seen as reminders of Germany's duty to never forget.
