The Image of “the Jews” and the Transformation of Polish Politics

Barricades and Banners
Stanford University Press

This chapter highlights the changing nature of politics and society among Poles in Warsaw through an examination of the image of “the Jews” that was popularized in the elections to the first two Dumas. It demonstrates that the 1906 and 1907 elections led to the politicization of ethnicity as both Poles and Jews passed through similar paths. The chapter also presents a detailed examination of the key motifs used to portray “the Jews” and their non-Jewish allies during the elections to the first two Dumas.
