Bilder des Jüdischen
Images of Jewishness. Self-Characterizations and Outside Attributions During the 20th and 21st Centuries

Selbst- und Fremdzuschreibungen im 20. und 21. Jahrhundert

Edited by: Juliane Sucker and Lea Wohl von Haselberg
Foreword by: Christina von Braun
In the spring of 2010, the weekly newspaper Die Zeit featured a headline story titled "Typically Jewish" - and puncutated this headline with a question mark. While this headline speaks to the problems associated with identity as an analytical category, the reciprocal relationships between Jewish self-characterizations and outside attributions of Jewishness remain of key importance for understanding the history of German-Jewish relations. At the heart of this volume are fictional models of "Jewishness," distinctions between different Jewish groups, as well as an examination of how internal Jewish discourse responded to anti-Semitic attributions - for example, during the time of the Weimar Republic.
