Jewish Cultural Memory and the German Historical Novel
The introduction examines the relation between modern, secular Jewish history writing (Wissenschaft des Judentums, the “Jewish version of German historicism”) and historical fiction. It introduces Rosenzweig's term “dissimilation” as a concept for the analysis of minority culture and questions of integration in an age of nationalism and embourgoisement. The argument is reinforced with an interpretation of Moritz Oppenheim's 1864 painting Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy Plays for Goethe.
