German-Jewish Soldiers of the First World War

Tim Grady’s new study on German-Jewish Soldiers of the First World War in History and Memory charts the development of remembrance of Jewish soldiers fighting for Germany in WWI from the Weimar Republic to post-WWII Germany:

‘By examining Germany’s complex and continually evolving memory culture, this book opens up a new approach to the study of both German and German-Jewish history. In doing so, it draws out a narrative of entangled and overlapping relations between Jews and non-Jews during the short twentieth century. The Jewish / non-Jewish relationship, the book argues, did not end on the battlefields of the First World War, but ran much deeper to extend through into the era of the Cold War.’
