(p.215) Twenty-Five Sorrow
The Legacy of German Jewry

Hermann Levin Goldschmidt

Fordham University Press

This chapter discusses the martyrdom of the innocent German Jews. It suggests that though the inner renewal and outer development of German and modern Jewry could somehow be erased or forced to a premature close by the surrounding world, the martyrdom of Jewish innocence could never be annulled. In their quest for modernity, equal rights, and civil emancipation, many Jews have sacrificed their own lives. And no matter how little those surviving Jews may wish to remember them, the dead remain firmly ensconced in their unconscious.

Keywords:   German Jews, martyrdom, inner renewal, outer development, modernity, equal rights, civil emancipation
