The epilogue discusses the legacy of German-Jewish Sephardism in view of the Holocaust. It examines the Berlin Jewish Museum's 1937 exhibit on the life of Don Isaac Abravanel, a key figure in many Jewish historical novels from Heine onwards. It then explores two post-Holocaust novels with Sephardic themes: Leo Perutz's Nachts unter der steinernen Brücke (By Night Under the Stone Bridge ) and Robert Menasse's 2001 novel Die Vertreibung aus der Hölle (Driven out of Hell). The chapter argues that Abravanel is now associated with images of loss and destruction, an adequate testimony to a form of cultural memory that no longer had an audience.
