In Werner Scholem: A German Life
(University of Pennsylvania Press, 2018), Mirjam Zadoff
, Director of the Munich Documentation Centre for the History of National Socialism, presents a biography of an individual, a family chronicle, and the story of an entire era. This biography suggests that the 'non-Jewish' Communist Jew was not as irreconcilably opposed to the 'Jewish' Jew as has previously been thought. It is an extraordinary work that will be referenced for many years to come.
