Reading Sample

The first focal point of the »Dubnow Institute Yearbook«2017 is dedicated to 1938, an incisive year in the history of European Jews. Proceeding from questions of citizenship, minority rights, flight, and migration, the dramatic crisis of that year is reexamined with a particular focus on the state of Central and Eastern Europe. A further focal point investigates the reasons behind the popularity of biographical works within Jewish studies. On the basis of research projects focusing on Jewish intellectuals, this section explores key issues and challenges of the genre. The general section and specialized categories of the yearbook include articles on the entanglement of politics and the history of religion, research on nationalism, and historical semantics, as well as on Scholem Alejchem, Franz Neumann, and Ernst Grumach.
