Post-Holocaust Religious Education focuses on experiences of second- and third generation non-Jewish German women, highlighting their dual roles as both descendants of a perpetrator community and victims of a patriarchal system. How can they learn to face this perpetrator heritage and integrate it into their identity as women, as Germans, and as Christians? Drawing from a review of literature and empirical field studies, Mayer concludes by offering a relational approach to religious education; an approach towards a more constructive interaction between Jewish and Christian communities.
