Jews Stream Back to Germany:
Thousands of Israelis and Diaspora Jews Seek Citizenship - Jewish Daily


Quote:
But an estimated 15,000 Israelis reside in Berlin, drawn there to work and study, and to enjoy the city’s freedom, cheap rents and exciting intellectual life. For these mostly younger Jews, the experiences of their grandparents and great-grandparents seem a distant trauma. “I fell in love with Berlin, its freedom, its great space” said Maya Nathan, a 33-year-old Israeli student with a German passport.

Deidre Berger, director of the American Jewish Committee’s Berlin office, said that Germany is increasingly attractive for Jewish immigration. “Berlin is becoming one of the most exciting capital cities in Europe, and it exerts a pull,” Berger said. “Many of the new Jewish citizens say they have some history in Germany, and they want to discover it.”

I guess the more pressing question is rather why, after being a separated wasteland for 40 years, Berlin has become one of the fastest growing magnet for Jews, young Europeans and Americans ?

Intro
"Hey, Berlin is such an awesome city; I’m going to move there for the summer and do some arty stuff.” People have been coming to Berlin to make music for many years. Just recently it’s a real international run on the city. What does this growing stream of people coming in from all over the world actually contribute to the cultural and music scenes? What is the influence? Is there something like an expat music scene? With a particular sound?
Speaking of music scenes, are there some typical Berlin sounds anyway?
And, is the current, say “cultural migration” and the impact it has on Berlin music scenes different from the past?

This thread is losing its traction. . . seems all the posts here are on the lines of fluffy civic boosterism. . . light on facts or actual discussion. . .
