Abstract:

Traces the history of the German-Jewish symbiosis, which was born with the Enlightenment at the end of the 18th century, threatened by modernity a century later, and collapsed with the assassination of the Jewish foreign minister Walther Rathenau in 1922. Discusses the confusion in late 19th-century Germany of Judaism with modernity, accrediting aristocratic antisemitism to hatred of capitalism. Analyzes the effects of the "Ostjudenfrage" on the status and self-image of the German Jews, especially after 1881, when thousands of Jews fleeing persecution in Eastern Europe crossed into Germany and many settled there. Analyzes the life and work of Rathenau, who incarnated the triumphs and failures of the German-Jewish union.
