A review of the book, Weimar Jewry and the Crisis of Modernization, 1918–1933 by Oded Heilbronner (ed.) is presented. This book is a collection of essays. It has neither introduction nor conclusion, and readers are thus expected to determine for themselves the volume's raison d' être. On the back jacket, however, appear several sentences, written by an anonymous hand, that serve in place of a formal introduction. According to the back jacket copy, the editor's aim is to concentrate on the Jewish story of the Weimar Republic rather than to provide either an epilogue to the Second Reich or a prologue to the Third. Thus, the main focus of these essays is on the social, economic and cultural history of German Jewry in the given period.

Keywords:   modernization, German Jewry, Jews, Weimar Republic
