This chapter discusses “My 1933”, the last work written by Hermann Levin Goldschmidt about the German Jewry. The central text of this collection represents a different kind of self-assertion achieved through a searing act of self-examination. Written in the form of an inner dialogue, Goldschmidt addresses to himself the challenging questions faced by his generation of survivors. Instead of combining accident and destiny that would leave German Jewish culture behind as a historical relic, Goldschmidt took the implicit and explicit voices of critique directed at German Jews in post-war, making it part of an inner debate.
