Against the backdrop of Simon Dubnow’s historiography and thought, the fourth issue of Jüdische Geschichte & Kultur focuses on concepts of a Jewish World History. On the occasion of the Dubnow Institute’s 25th anniversary, the issue is devoted to questions of Jewish individual and collective emancipation, political participation and cultural belonging, as well as juridical autonomy. The permanent sections Position, Critique, and Archive deal with interactions between the diaspora and Palestine or Israel, the newest movie An Officer and a Spy by Roman Polanski, and the first biography of Friedrich Pollock.


The magazine of the Dubnow Institute offers insights into the diversity of Jewish lived experiences from modernity into the present. Each issue is dedicated to a specific theme, examining topical questions, establishing fundamental connections, and discussing contrary perspectives. Further aspects of the respective topic are discussed in the columns Position, Critique, and Archive.
