Abstract:

Kraus's satires expressed his own identity crisis and that of Austria, in which antisemitism, sexual hysteria, and xenophobia were important forces. Pp. 237-243 deal with Kraus's Jewish identity and attitude to antisemitism. He renounced Judaism in 1899 and became a Catholic in 1911, but kept his conversion a secret fearing that he would be accused of opportunism. Kraus adopted Houston Stewart Chamberlain's ideas and printed articles by Chamberlain in his magazine "Die Fackel." During the First World War, he attacked Jewish profiteers and journalists as traitors to Austria. However, in 1918 he became a democrat, and he left the Church in 1923.
