      Abstract: AbstractHebrew–German homophonic translation as a poetic writing technique is a still largely unknown phenomenon in German–Hebrew Studies. In my research dedicated to mapping the diversity of multilingual modalities in modern German and Hebrew literature, I am particularly interested in German–Hebrew homophony. Thus, in my paper, I analyse German–Hebrew homophony in Pagis’ Hebrew poems ‘Ein Leben’ and ‘Written in Pencil in a Sealed Railway-Car’ (כתוב בעפרון בקרון החתום), while showing the deep impression that Ernst Jandl’s avant-garde poetry (‘oberflächenübersetzung’) has left upon Pagis’ oeuvre. In light of my homophonic analysis, I offer access to a hitherto unnoticed deep layer of German–Hebrew dialogue in Pagis’ poetry, which offers novel interpretations that are unique in the corpus of German-Jewish and Hebrew literature.

      Abstract: Any research in the field of modern German-Jewish history faces a historiographical problem: the Holocaust is arguably the core element of this history, and because of its magnitude and enormity everything that happened beforehand seems to be leading up to it in one way or another. The Holocaust, so to speak, transforms its pre-history into a teleological history of decline. And as much as it is possible to be aware of this problem, it is impossible to escape it entirely.11

  • Open the Gate: German Jews, the Foundation of Tel Aviv Port, and the
           Imagined Power of the Sea in 1936

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Siegel B.
      Pages: 6 - 24
      Abstract: AbstractIn 1936, the opening of Tel Aviv port for general cargo had an impact not only on the Yishuv in Palestine, but also on German Jewry. Against the background of increasing ethnic-religious tensions in British Mandatory Palestine, and growing persecution and oppression in National Socialist Germany, the opening of this new access point to the sea became a signifier of hope and self-determination. This article explores the evolving idea of a Zionist turn towards the sea, whose first peak was marked by the opening of Tel Aviv port, and discusses the role of key individuals in the processes of nation-building, survival, and maritime renewal. By examining the influence of the Zionist Organization (ZO) and its interplay with German Jews—especially Hamburg-Jewish shipping experts—the article demonstrates how economic, but also ideological arguments became important in the debates about a Zionist conquest of the sea. Moreover, the article shows that the integration of German-Jewish shipping experts as maritime pioneers into discourses of a Zionist maritime renewal expanded not only the scope of action of the Yishuv’s leaders, but also of German Jews. The interplay of these two groups laid the groundwork for the short-lived dream of Tel Aviv port.

  • Beyond Marginalization: The (German-)Jewish Soldiers’ Agency in
           Times of War, 1914–19181

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Panter S.
      Pages: 25 - 39
      Abstract: AbstractThis article rethinks research on Jewish experiences during the First World War and asks what changes if the concept of ‘agency’ is explicitly applied to the subject of Jewish soldiers. Over the past years, historians working on the (German-)Jewish war experience have avoided a one-sided narrative of Jewish marginalization by focusing on larger questions of civic and ethnic belonging. This article picks up this thread, putting emphasis on the possibilities and concrete manifestations of the (German-)Jewish soldiers’ agency and how it was negotiated between the war and the home fronts. It argues that by concentrating on Jewish soldiers as actors in their own right, a more ambivalent narrative becomes visible—one that sees Jews during the First World War not as marginalized subjects across the board. Even though many Jewish soldiers experienced exclusion on an individual and collective level, their coming to terms with what it meant to be a soldier and a Jew during the war frequently triggered a process of Jewish reorientation as well. Bringing these two perspectives together, I show how Jews in and outside Germany were not simply bystanders during the national crisis, but took an active part in shaping their own history.

  • Agency, Free Will, Self-Constitution: New Concepts for Historians of
           German-Jewish History between 1914 and 1938'

      Abstract: AbstractThis article discusses recent work on German-Jewish agency between 1914 and 1938. To find out whether ‘agency’ might be a helpful category for examining the crises facing Central European Jewry in this period, the article addresses the subject from the perspectives of individual and collective agency, applying classifications that philosophers have employed to make sense of human conduct. As I hope to show, these delimitations are only a preliminary step in trying to determine the explanatory power of agency. Whether the latter can serve as a tool in future work on modern German-Jewish history depends on the suitability of more specific philosophies of agency. Here the work of Christine Korsgaard and especially Michael Bratman may prove helpful in reflecting both on the self-understanding of German Jews in the first decades of the twentieth century and on their ‘freedom of action’ once this self-understanding was called into question. There is reason to see planning structures—grounded in the diachronic organization of our temporally extended selves—as basic to our individual and collective agency. Without ‘planning agency’, I will argue, ‘agency’ refers to mere action or choice.

  • ‘Departure from a Sinking World’:1 Jewish Emigration from
           Austria between 1933 and 19382

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Anderl G.
      Pages: 58 - 78
      Abstract: AbstractHitler’s rise to power in Germany in 1933 was a highly alarming signal for the Austrian Jewish population. Many recognized the seriousness of the situation and considered emigrating, but only some of them did so. The reactions were influenced by a number of factors—age, gender, family background, further socialization, private, professional, and organizational networks, financial situation, the role of religion, the attitude towards Zionism, and political convictions. For the vast majority who did not emigrate before 1938, a lack of awareness of the danger cannot always be assumed.Antisemitism in Austria was almost always a factor in the decision to emigrate. The difficult economic situation in the interwar period had a particularly strong impact on the Jewish population due to discrimination in professional life. The Austrofascist regime did not enact antisemitic laws, but did not protect Jews from various forms of attack. Members of the banned left-wing parties were threatened with prosecution and internment—a motive for flight.I try to find out how much scope for action, how much agency, Austrian Jews possessed during the period from 1933 to 1938. I investigate the factors that led to the decision of individuals to emigrate and the circumstances that encouraged or hindered the realization of such plans—in a time when nobody could foresee the Shoah. Since the bare figures on Jewish emigration during this period do not allow any insight into personal motifs, we remain largely dependent on individual testimonies.

  • Mendelssohn on the Edge: Memory, Agency, and National Belonging in Weimar
           Germany

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Steer M.
      Pages: 79 - 95
      Abstract: AbstractIn times of great political unrest and disorientation, societies generally invent and reinvent myths. As unrest and disorientation were among the most striking characteristics of the Weimar era, it is not surprising that the bicentenary celebrations of Moses Mendelssohn’s birth, held in 1929, constituted the peak of the Enlightenment philosopher’s popularity as a German-Jewish patron saint. This article argues that the commemoration of Mendelssohn on the eve of catastrophe, four years before the Weimar Republic’s collapse, serves as a particularly precise indicator of ambivalent German-Jewish agency at the time, due to its political, social, and cultural implications. Whereas the bicentenary celebrations—featuring the Republic’s most prominent representatives, state-of-the-art exhibitions, cultural events in prestigious locations, and extensive media coverage—attest to the considerable leeway German Jewry had in shaping social reality, the continuing absence of Mendelssohn in the canon of German poets and thinkers illustrates the limits of German-Jewish agency in the cultural imaginary of the German nation.

  • Perceptions of Emotions in Modern Jewish History: An Introduction

      Authors: von der Krone K.
      Pages: 99 - 100
      Abstract: The last decade saw an increasing body of scholarship on the role of emotions as a significant layer of historical experience.11 Historians have explored the shifting meanings of emotional categories such as love and hate, honour and shame, trust and distrust, have traced the antagonistic relation of emotion and reason, rationality and irrationality in modern historical thought, and have begun to conceptualize emotions as practices.22 This forum aims to contribute to these debates with three case studies that explore how emotional categories and concepts, most significantly that of love, were renegotiated in conversation with Jewish tradition within eighteenth- and nineteenth-century German Judaism.

           Hebrew Bible

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Salzer D.
      Pages: 101 - 119
      Abstract: AbstractChildren’s literature, conceptualized as a means of enculturation, is a vehicle for transmitting a society’s or community’s shared values, and is designed to mould children’s behaviour according to what is thought appropriate. As such, it is a powerful cultural agent and consequently a valuable source in the historical study of emotions. This article sets out to explore what can be gained from looking at literature designed for the religious education of Jewish children as sources that shed light on the role of emotions in the process of religious modernization in Judaism. Based on the assumption that feelings are to be viewed as a form of knowledge which is transmitted, acquired, and acted out in specific cultural contexts, several criteria for analysing the verbalization, representation, and use of emotions in Jewish children’s literature are outlined by focusing on the subgenre of Jewish children’s bibles. This analysis allows us to explore how emotions unfolded in educational literature, and how they became an integral and transformative part of religious knowledge, self-assertion, (re)definition, and identity formation at a time of tremendous change for Judaism.

  • Between Love and Misogamy: Changing Perceptions of Marriage among German
           Jews, 1750–1800

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Naimark-Goldberg N.
      Pages: 120 - 137
      Abstract: AbstractMarriage is a central and binding institution of Jewish life. However, as a historical construct, it was never a static, immutable structure. This article focuses on the changing attitudes towards marriage among German Jews in the second half of the eighteenth century. It discusses how rational considerations external to the couple’s personal needs and desires started losing ground, while its function as a framework for emotional and erotic satisfaction intensified. As marriage was increasingly perceived in terms of self-fulfilment, many pursued happiness through matrimony, embracing the new idea of the love marriage. Although this idea developed from contemporary trends in non-Jewish society, maskilic authors used Jewish sources to maintain this position, trying to present it as consistent with tradition rather than as a break from it. The emergence of a romantic discourse was not the only transformation in the perception of marriage. The individualism that impelled the notion of a love marriage led to another type of discourse among Jewish women and men: the discourse against marriage. Using the perspectives of continuity and change, the article seeks to discern the role that Judaism and Jewish sources played in discourses about misogamy and the modernization of the traditional institution of marriage.

      Abstract: AbstractThis article asks why the concept of ‘Nächstenliebe’ or ‘love of neighbour’ became a source of contestation between Jewish and Christian intellectuals between the fin-de-siècle and the First World War. For some Christian intellectuals, highlighting differences between an apparently more expansive Christian love of neighbour and an allegedly narrower Jewish conception could provide a novel means of questioning how fully Jews could belong as members of German society. As the article shows, Jewish intellectuals did not simply seek to counter those definitions that claimed a moral superiority for Christian Nächstenliebe, however. Some went further and argued that Jewish ideas of neighbourly love were actually the more cosmopolitan, in contrast to Christian conceptions that had become increasingly self-serving and sectarian. In some instances, these Jewish intellectuals used such arguments about love of neighbour to make the case for Zionism. The article then investigates how the First World War affected these ideas about Nächstenliebe. It suggests that the war furthered the ‘negative integration’ of German society in ways that left little room for love between diverse kinds of German.

  • The Bylaws of Frankfurt’s Neo-Orthodox Synagogue: A Developmental
           History

      Pages: 161 - 179
      Abstract: ABSTRACTThis essay seeks to present the history and context of the ‘Synagogenordnungen’, the synagogal bylaws that German-Jewish communities established in the middle and late nineteenth century. Focusing primarily upon the bylaws instituted within the Israelitische Religionsgesellschaft (IRG), the Neo-Orthodox synagogue in Frankfurt am Main, this essay argues that these ordinances reflect the uniquely centrist character of that synagogue, as it concomitantly rejected the encroachment of Reform Judaism and embraced many elements of the surrounding Germanic cultural norms and mores. By examining both the contextual framework and the historical development of the three iterations of these bylaws (written in 1874, 1907, and 1927 respectively) it is possible to gain a large measure of insight into both the ideological priorities of the IRG’s leadership and the practical manner in which these priorities were acted upon.

  • From Cravat to Khaki: Gender, Sexuality, and Change in the Immigration of
           Fritz Wolf to Mandate Palestine1

      Authors: Alianov-Rautenberg V.
      Pages: 180 - 196
      Abstract: AbstractThis article offers an in-depth analysis of the relation of gender and change in the migration experience from National Socialist Germany to Mandate Palestine in the 1930s. Choosing a micro-perspective, this article draws on various unpublished writings of Dr. jur. Fritz Wolf (1908–2006). Concentrating on Wolf’s first encounter with Palestine, this article considers the different stages of migration—journey, arrival, and first year in a new homeland—to shed light on the crucial importance of gender in his observations, interactions, and self-perception in this process. While Fritz Wolf is at the centre of this case study, gender will be used in this article as a relational category, relating this case study to experiences of German-Jewish immigrants in general, both male and female. Therefore, this article provides a discussion of changing gender relations, different masculinities and femininities, and altered concepts of marriage and sexuality within the German-Jewish immigrant community in Mandate Palestine in general.

  • Stereotypes and Jewish Musical Topics in East German Film: Ambiguities and
           Allosemitism in Hotel Polan und seine Gäste

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Frühauf T.
      Pages: 218 - 237
      Abstract: AbstractThe miniseries Hotel Polan und seine Gäste tells the story of three generations of a Jewish family of hoteliers in Bohemia from 1908 to National Socialist persecution. Produced by GDR television in the early 1980s, the series was subsequently broadcast in other European countries and met with a mixed reception. Later on, scholars evaluated it as blatantly antisemitic and anti-Zionist. This essay seeks to re-evaluate these prerogatives by centring the analysis of the miniseries on a close reading of its music—a method not often used in Jewish studies, but a suitable lens through which to interrogate the employment of stereotypes, especially in film, and in light of textual sources from the Cold War era often being reflective of ideologies rather than facts. Employing critical theories of cultural studies and film music, it seeks to identify stereotypes and their dramatic placement and to analyse their operation. It asserts that story, image, and sound constitute both synchronous and asynchronous agents that perpetuate various stereotypes associated with Jews, thereby placing Hotel Polan in the liminal space of allosemitism. Constructed through difference from a perceived norm, Hotel Polan ultimately represents a space in which the egregious stereotype and the strategic employment of types meet. Its deployment of Jewish musical topics specifically shows that it is less their dramatic function that is of relevance, but the discourse that they have the power to enable.
