Draußen vor dem Ghetto
The Bohemian and Moravian ghetto novels by Leopold Kompert (1822-1886), Eduard Kulke (1831-1897) and others are a repository of frequently highly detailed information on Jewish social life in the 19th century. For the first time in the framework of a study in cultural anthropology, they are examined here for their value as literary sources serving the reconstruction of everyday Jewish life. Also central to the investigation is the question of Jewish assimilation/acculturation in the age of emancipation, a subject dealt with notably in Heinrich Heine's famous "Rabbi von Bacherach" (1840).
