Abstract:

Criticizes historians who, in their attempt to delegitimize the former DDR regime, claim that its treatment of the Jews was riddled with antisemitism. Rejects most of the examples which are presented to show that there was antisemitism, contending that antisemitic incidents which did occur are not evidence of the regime's character. Negates the term "structural antisemitism", and argues that the Soviet occupation zone and the subsequent DDR basically condemned antisemitism, in keeping with their anti-fascist ideology. Discusses, also, and disagrees with the view that anti-Zionism is equivalent to antisemitism. Pp. 264-399 contain Kirchner's "Jüdisches in Publikationen aus DDR-Verlagen 1945-1990: Eine Bibliografie", with 1,086 entries, an introduction by Kirchner, and indexes. Two of the ten sections of the bibliography deal with the subjects National Socialism and persecution of the Jews, and antisemitism and racism.
