"It is an unrivaled scandal (that no one among the experts has a Jewish background)," said Julius H. Schoeps, founding director of the Moses Mendelssohn Center for European-Jewish Studies in Potsdam.
"German lawmakers and the Interior Minister must ask themselves why … clearly no value is placed on experts from Jewish organizations and communities," he added in a statement.

The fact that no Jewish expert was appointed is "an unprecedented scandal," Julius Schoeps, founding director of the Moses Mendelssohn Center for European Jewish Studies in Potsdam, said in the statement.
The Interior Ministry established the commission in August 2009 with rotating membership following a Bundestag resolution the previous year. The new set of eight experts, including scholars and educators, met for the first time on Jan. 19.
Schoeps, the only Jewish member of the original panel, said the parliament and interior minister should have to explain why they apparently did not consider it valuable this time to include experts and advisers of Jewish background, or representatives from Jewish organizations and communities.
"No one would ever propose setting up a conference on hatred of Islam without Muslims, or a roundtable on discrimination against women with no woman present," Anetta Kahane, head of the Amadeu Antonio Foundation.
Kahane is joining with Schoeps and the American Jewish Committee (AJC) in Berlin, under its director, Deidre Berger, to form their own Expert Commission on Anti-Semitism, with both Jewish and non-Jewish experts from Germany and elsewhere.

According to Julius Schoeps, director of the Moses Mendelssohn Center, Germany has 6,000 museums, only 350 of which have done provenance research on their collections. "The process of returning works should be expedited," he said.
German-Jewish Dialogue and Reconciliation [cached]
"Thanks to these developments, I believe there is a good chance for the emergence of a new German Jewry," says the historian Julius H. Schoeps, head of the Moses Mendelssohn Center for European-Jewish Studies in Potsdam by Berlin. He describes the quintessential Jewish immigrant in Germany as "a mathematician from, say, St. Petersburg."

Julius Schoeps, a leading German Jewish intellectual, argued that it would be better to cut off the Gemeinde's government subsidy and force a complete makeover from the bottom up.
"The state gives the Gemeinde too much money," Schoeps said during an interview at his office in Potsdam. "After 1945, German politicians needed Jews here as a sign that the new Germany is a democracy. Therefore they gave money, money, money."
Schoeps said he has friends in the Berlin Senate who describe the situation at the Gemeinde as "horrible. Still, he said, they will not cut the subsidy, because such action would be seen as anti-Semitic.
"I left the community because of people like Joffe," said Schoeps, who is the director of the Moses-Mendelssohn Center for European-Jewish Studies and professor emeritus of German-Jewish history at Potsdam University.
Schoeps described a staggering cultural cleavage between the community's Russian majority and the smattering of remaining German and Polish Jews. They have different memories, different histories, different traditions, he said.
Jews raised in the Soviet Union were accustomed to a pervasive government presence that smothered personal initiative. They had no background in civic democracy and were accustomed to a culture in which people often used unsavory means to circumvent the system.
"It was the antithesis of the competitive German society," said Schoeps.
