In the first in-depth study of the Jewish population of Germany between the two world wars, Michael Brenner describes a people in the midst of redefining themselves. He shows how the Weimar Jews, participating but not assimilating in German society, created new forms of German-Jewish literature, music, fine art, education, and scholarship by dressing Jewish traditions in the garb of modern forms of cultural expression. Michael Brenner is Professor of Jewish History and Culture at University of Munich.
