The third issue of Jüdische Geschichte & Kultur is devoted to the Jewish engagement with law after 1945 in reaction to National Socialism and the Holocaust.

The permanent sections Position, Critique, and Archive deal with, among other things, the legacy of the Bauhaus in Israel beyond the metropolises, the cinematic oeuvre of Ruth Beckermann, and the diaries of the Egyptologist Georg Steindorff.
The magazine of the Dubnow Institute offers insights into the diversity of Jewish lived experiences from modernity into the present. Each issue is dedicated to a specific theme, examining topical questions, establishing fundamental connections, and discussing contrary perspectives. Further aspects of the respective topic are discussed in the columns Position, Critique, and Archive.
