The Legacy of German Jewry

This chapter discusses the life and works of Jewish historian and writer Simon Dubnow. He left Germany in 1933 and relocated to Riga with the autonomist perspective that the preservation of Judaism could be accomplished by acquiring a form of self-government within Europe. When the Bolsheviks had gained control of his Russian homeland, he went back to Germany and completed the translation and publication of World History of the Jewish People. With this work, Dubnow has not only sustained the continuity of Jewish historiography, he has also given Jewish self-awareness a new degree of historical anchorage.

Keywords:   Simon Dubnow, Jews, preservation of Judaism, Germany, Jewish historiography
