Description
This book, the first to offer a full account of the varied contributions of German Jews to Imperial Germany’s endeavours during the Great War, will unsettle deterministic perspectives on the Holocaust. It examines the efforts of the 100,000 Jewish soldiers who served in the German military (12,000 of whom died), as well as the various activities Jewish communities supported at home, such as raising funds and securing vital food supplies. However, Grady’s research goes much deeper: he shows that German Jews were never at the periphery of Germany’s warfare, but were in fact heavily involved.
