The Jews and the German war experience, 1914-1918 / by George L. Mosse.
Examines fundamental problems in the German-Jewish dialogue which the First World War laid bare, and which cannot be subsumed under the familiar dichotomy of assimilation and antisemitism. A new idea of manhood grew out of the war, providing a stereotype that became firmly rooted as a German ideal in the next decades. Christian patterns of belief gained new vitality, and the war was infused with Christian meaning and vocabulary. In both these cases, the Jew was the outsider, and eventually (in the late Weimar period and in the Nazi period) became the enemy. Focuses on the development of the concepts of the ideal German male and the Christian martyr as they evolved in Christian (focusing here on the Protestant) thought of those who fought in the trenches, during that war and afterwards.
