Abstract:

Pp. 429-497 deal with the decline and suppression of Jewish publishing houses between 1933-38. Presents an overview of the general effect of Nazi cultural policies on Jewish publishers in Germany, but focuses on the Jüdischer Verlag. Discusses the struggle of the owner, Siegmund Kaznelson, to keep the publishing house afloat amidst financial difficulties and anti-Jewish measures. The prestigious art and book shop he had acquired earlier to boost his economy was Aryanized in 1935. The Jüdischer Verlag, though hit by an initial repressive measure in 1934 (when the publication of a book on Jews in German culture was stopped), was allowed to continue its activity until 1937, as were some other Jewish publishers, book shops, and libraries. The reason for the relative Nazi tolerance of the Jüdischer Verlag was the fact that it only published books with Jewish themes. Jewish books were subject to Nazi censorship, but their publication and export were allowed. By 1937 Kaznelson's personal and economic future in Germany had become so unsure that he emigrated to Palestine, where he had opened a parallell firm in 1931. When the Jüdischer Verlag was suppressed by Nazi orders in 1938, its remaining stock was taken over by the newly established Jüdischer Kulturbund. Thanks to Kaznelson's shady dealings with German authorities from the 1920s and his creative handling of the situation after 1933, the forced liquidation of the publishing house hit him less drastically than many others. Also discusses the Verlag's publications between 1933-38.
