This chapter examines Jewish novelists writing in Germany after the Nazi rise to power, as well as Jewish writers in exile from Hitler. It illustrates how Sephardic themes continued to be a source for Jewish cultural memory. Jewish writers returned to the genre of historical fiction and to the models of earlier German-Jewish writers to give voice to their own experience of a renewed Inquisi¬tion and expulsion, to honor previous generations of German-Jewish writers as they bitterly distanced themselves from their integrationist dreams, and to distinguish a specifically Jewish resistance to fascism.

Keywords:   Nazism, Inquisition, exile, Sephardic, Jewish, anti-fascism, Spanish Civil War
