Jüdische Weisheit
State – Society – Nation:
The Jewish vision of the integrative society in 19th century Germany
- and its present and future implications.
June 2005 – December 2006

Only recently have the Salomon Ludwig Steinheim-Institute for Jewish Studies and the Duisburg Institute for Linguistic and Social Research (DISS) launched a joint research project to study the vision of an integrative society, put forward by numerous German-Jewish writers in 19th century Germany. The project is sponsored by the Ministry of Research and Education of North Rhine-Westphalia with the backing of the University of Duisburg-Essen.

Applying historical discourse analysis the research will focus on essays and rejoinders published by German-Jewish authors in separate prints and brochures. The years between 1848 and 1871 have been chosen as an exemplary period to study the perspective on state, society, and nation conveyed by German-Jewish authors, who all too frequently had to take up positions that opposed the fabric of Christian, nationalistic, and anti-Jewish rhetoric.

The project is expected to produce a variety of new historiographic evidence. Its primary objective, though, is to understand the German-Jewish discourse on integration, tolerance and (German) identity in 19th century Germany as a conceptual debate that bears an impact on present-day and future German society.

Technical aspects of the project are also innovative, as it will add transparency to the publications of the period most of which were printed in gothic (i.e. 'broken') characters. In addition, many of the 280 prints and brochures singled out so far as a dossier have been found in international libraries as single copies only, far too often in poor condition.

Thus, using digitization and OCR-procedures will not only be a precondition to apply discourse analysis to extensive text material but also a way to save a valuable heritage contributed by German Jewry to the German and European intellectual and social tradition by producing online and printed full-text versions of part of the project's dossier.

Kirche und Synagoge:
Die Dresdner Frauenkirche sollte ein Mahnmal bleiben

Das Duisburger Institut für Sprach- und Sozialforschung erinnert aus Anlass der Einweihung der Dresdner Frauenkirche an die Entstehung der jüdischen Gemeinde in Dresden und an die Jahre der Erbauung der Semper-Synagoge zwischen 1838 und 1840, eines Kleinods, das in der Reichspogromnacht vom 9. auf den 10. November 1938 in Flammen aufging...
