In September 2000, sixty one years after his family were expelled from Nazi Germany, Tom Forres and his wife, now resident in Australia, were invited by the Berlin Senate and the Jewish communities to visit the capital as their honoured guests,MoreIn September 2000, sixty one years after his family were expelled from Nazi Germany, Tom Forres and his wife, now resident in Australia, were invited by the Berlin Senate and the Jewish communities to visit the capital as their honoured guests, courtesy of the German/Jewish Reconciliation Program.

Since its inception, more than 40 years ago, thousands of former Jewish refugees have come from every corner of the world to revisit their German home city and to experience for themselves the remarkable change that has taken place in the post-war German/Jewish relationship. This book, Tears Are Not Enough is a tribute to the indomitable human spirit of both Jews and Gentiles - to the aged Jews who had the courage to return to their former homeland, there to relive their traumatic childhood, and to the German people who had the moral courage to face the truth about the Nazi Holocaust.

Tears Are Not Enough, is an in-depth appraisal of this unique German reconciliation initiative. As the author recalls his own childhood, the Program becomes the link between his past and the reality of the present. This lavishly illustrated book not only reveals the authors sincere empathy with the Jewish survivors of the Nazi Holocaust who suffered under the Nazi terror, but also brings to the readers attention the German peoples remarkable change of heart which today drives their resolve to keep permanently alive the unspeakable crimes committed by the Nazi government against the Jewish nation and other minorities.

In Tears Are Not Enough, the author reveals hidden aspects of the German/Jewish initiative which he sees as the basis for a potentially wider application wherever organisations are faced with the difficult task of reconciling people of diverse cultures and ethnic background.
