This chapter interprets Else Lasker-Schueler's modernist text, Der Wunderrabbiner von Barcelona (The Wonder-Working Rabbi of Barcelona [1921]), as a renewal and revision of nineteenth-century German-Jewish literary traditions in response to anti-Semitism in the wake of World War I. It argues that Lasker-Schüler combines German-Jewish Sephardism with a new understanding of Eastern European Jewry.

Keywords:   modernism, Weimar, Jewish, German, anti-Semitism, Lasker-Schüler
