Weimar film and modern Jewish identity

Research output: Book/ReportBook


"This book argues that Weimar genre film was a site where the complexities and challenges of Jewish identity were envisioned and negotiated. In reading popular films of the Weimar Republic as candid commentaries on Jewish acculturation, Ofer Ashkenzi provides an alternative context for a re-evaluation of the infamous "German-Jewish symbiosis" before the rise of Nazism, as well as a new framework for the understanding of the German "national" film in the years leading to Hitler's regime"--Provided by publisher.
