The German-Jewish Soldiers of the First World War in History and Memory

Tim Grady

Liverpool University Press

  • This is the first academic study in either German or English to explore the history and memory of the Jewish soldiers who fought for Germany in the First World War
  • The book offers a new approach to the history of Jewish / non-Jewish relations, focusing on points of contact and interaction, rather than just moments of rupture
  • The book is not just a study of liberal Jewry, which is often the main focus of German-Jewish historical writing, but is also an exploration of more conservative, even right-wing, sections of Germany's Jewish population
  • This study is one of very few to move beyond the caesuras of 1933 or 1945 to explore German-Jewish and German history across the short twentieth century as a whole
  • The book combines previously untapped archival material from Israel, Germany, Britain and the USA.
