"Exiled God and exiled peoples" sets out to explore the perceptions of God within a number of forcibly removed communities in South Africa and Jewish survivors of the Shoah, with the latter being predominantly of German origin. It considers rupture in individual and commmunal life-stories as a determining factor in the perception of and the relationship with God and follows the path paved by survivors of apartheid and the Shoah by recalling their topo-logy, their stories about place, displacement and terror and the encapsulated relationship with God in their respective exiles.
