Daughters of Jihad: The German Women of Islamic State

Fatma B.’s path to jihad began where the Jews of Augsburg used to live. The southern German city’s Bismarckviertel, not far from the historical city center, was once home to a thriving Jewish community — before they were driven out by the Nazis.

The late 19th-century buildings where they lived are still there, their facades having been carefully renovated, but the apartments within are no longer inhabited by the bourgeoisie. Compact and mid-sized cars now line the streets. It has become a popular neighborhood for students and young families.
