Manuela Koska accompanied Rabbi Wolff with her camera over the course of over one year. What emerged during this journey is an insighful pictorial reportage that deals with universal truths and the Jewsih identity in contemporary Germany accompanied by letters from a wise, open-minded Rabbi with charisma and a unique charm and texts from a young Jew who was born one month after the German re-unification as well as portraits of members of the Jewish community of Schwerin which speak for themselves.

William Wolff is the state rabbi in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. He was born in Berlin in 1927. He fled from Nazi Germany in 1933 with his parents, brother and sister, first to Holland and later to England. There he worked as a journalist for over 25 years. He returned to Germany 68 years after his emigration.
