This chapter examines the relation between being German and being Jewish. It analyzes how Jews in German-speaking Europe would become such enthusiastic chauvinists in the cause of German culture, particularly when seen through the prism of the Holocaust. The chapter discusses the case of Jewish composer Franz Schreker, who would be the object of virulent anti-Semitic attacks in the immediate lead-up to Adolf Hitler, and describes the condition of the Jews during the periods from the Biedermeier Age to the Revolution of 1848, and how they were affected by the Congress of Vienna.

Keywords:   Jews, German culture, Holocaust, Franz Schreker, anti-Semitic attacks, Adolf Hitler, Biedermeier Age, Revolution of 1848, Congress of Vienna
