The German Empire's Jewish Subjects
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of this paper is to look not just at the status Jews had during this period, but at what measures Jews took to both integrate into the majority German community— to adapt into their community a sense of "German-ness"—and to succeed in modernizing themselves to further achieve that goal. This paper also seeks to see where Jews were most successful in this integration and modernization, as well as where they may have fallen short by anti-Semitic sentiments or even issues within the community itself. This includes looking at the differences between Jewish communities in large cities, small towns, and rural areas, and seeing how factors changed those settings.
