About this item

This study looks at personal accounts, archival documents, and works of fiction, as well as examples from visual culture such as advertisements and films, to explore Jewish responses to mainstream and anti-Semitic stereotypes in Weimar Germany. Seeking to connect the work of historians and literary scholars, the study uses ideas from Germans studies and Jewish studies, within a framework of cultural studies, examining Weimar Jewish identity and self-presentation. The study investigates the desire to pass as non-Jewish and explains why people hid or revealed their Jewishness. The book offers b&w historical photos, art, cartoons, ads, and film stills.
