Abstract:

An examination of Jewish self-hatred viewed as the adoption and internalization of antisemitic stereotypes. Focuses on the belief in the existence of a secret Jewish language and the accusation that Jews are incapable of truly mastering the language and discourse of the society in which they live, tracing the response of Jewish writers in Germany to this accusation from the early modern period up to the Holocaust. Discusses the treatment of Jewish language by post-Holocaust Jewish writers, mostly American, and suggests that this particular form of self-hatred may have disappeared.
