[German Jews - German Language. Jewish and Judaeophobic Language Concepts and Conflicts 1893-1933]
The study examines Jewish and judaeophobic language concepts and conflicts between 1893 and 1933. The author is primarily concerned with reconstructing German Jews' attitudes to the German language. The sources used include public debates on the assessment of language as they were conducted in prominent Jewish journals around 1900.
Conversely, Kremer also examines the specific linguistic, cultural and racial polemics of the contemporary agitation directed against the Jews. His discreetly and tactfully written study contributes to the process of reappraising German-Jewish relations in attitudes to the German language.
