Unwelcome Strangers : East European Jews in Imperial Germany
When East European Jews migrated westward in ever larger numbers between 1870 and 1914, both German government officials and the leaders of German Jewry were confronted by a series of new challenges. This book probes the questions raised, touching on some of the most troubling issues in modern German and Jewish history - the behaviour of Germans towards strangers in their midst, the status and self-perception of emancipated Jews in pre-Nazi Germany, and the response of `privileged' Jews to needy, but alien co-religionists. Students of Jewish and modern German history.
