Abstract:

Surveying Jewish life in Prussia from the beginning of the 18th century, contends that this period saw a considerable change in Christian-Jewish relations. After the Enlightenment, Jews were less despised, but a new era of competition, envy, and fear of "powerful Jewish capitalism" began. Mentions discriminatory legislation - especially against poor Jews - under the rule of Friedrich II. Discusses Fichte's anti-Jewish writings and his theories of a "world Jewish conspiracy". Focuses on persecution of Jews in the Polish regions, later annexed to Prussia. After the emancipation, the Jews considered themselves as German patriots, but were not accepted as such by the population which was influenced by antisemitic agitation.
