Autobiography as a Source for the Study of German Jewry in Its Homeland and in Dispersion

By Guy Miron

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Spring 2007

The author discusses the vast range of autobiographical materials written by German Jews from the end of the eighteenth century onward. He contends that the existence of this material in significant volume at all illustrates how fully German Jewry had adopted German middle-class individualism. The author further explores what the content of these materials can teach about the pre-World War II and post-Holocaust experience of German Jews.
