German Jews Confront Nazism, as Reflected in Jewish History

Reviewed by Richard I. Cohen

  1. Martin Buber, Die Stunde und die Erkenntnis (Berlin: Schocken, 1936), p. 7, quoted from Kulka in his article, “Major Trends and Tendencies in German Historiography on National Socialism and the ‘Jewish Question’” Israel Gutman and Gideon Greif, eds., The Historiography of the Holocaust Period, Proceedings of the Fifth Yad Vashem International Historical Conference (Jerusalem: Yad Vashem, 1983), p. 6.
  2. See Otto Dov Kulka, “Elucidating the Jewish Policy of the SD in the First Occupied Countries (Unknown Documents from 1938–1939),” Yalkut Moreshet 18 (November 1974), p. 168. This is not the place to discuss Kafka’s historical “accuracy” in regard to the number of Jews banished from Prague in 1744.
  3. Esriel Hildesheimer, Juedische Selbstverwaltung unter dem NS-Regime (Tuebingen: Mohr Siebeck), 1994.
  4. Lilienthal, an attorney and a member of the Kehilla, became secretary-general of the Reichsvereinigung when it was founded. The book’s detailed and useful glossary presents information about him (p. 504) and many other personalities, concepts, and organizations mentioned in the book (pp. 453-546).
  5. Kulka, Discussion, The Historiography of the Holocaust Period, p. 104.
  6. Yitzhak F. Baer, Galut (New York: Schocken, 1947), p. 122.
