Synopsis

The German-Jewish Dialogue offers a unique selection of short stories, plays, poems, essays, letters, and diary entries that illustrates through literature the history of German-Jewish relations. From the eighteenth century, when civil rights for Jews were first proposed, through the 1990s and contemporary considerations of the Holocaust, this anthology sheds light on the interaction between Jews in Germany and Austria and their fellow Gentile Germans with works of high literary merit, each introduced with a short preface. Ritche Robertson's lucid introduction puts the selections in their historical context and his translations make available in English--in some cases for the first time--both Jewish writers on various aspects of Jewish experience and responses of Gentile writers to the Jews in their midst.
