Editorial Reviews

Review

"Marlene Otte's book is a welcome contribution to German Studies, Jewish Studies, and the history of popular culture....this articulate, engaging, detailed, and informative study broadens our perspective on German Jewry and our view of popular entertainment in Germany from 1890-1933....The specificity of Otte's topic and case studies allows her to present detailed, thorough research that makes for a fascinating read. Jewish Identities in German Popular Entertainment is a fine piece of work. Readers in many sub-fields of German Studies will find it interesting, well-researched, and clearly argued and will be pleased to use it for their own research as well as in their classes."
--Valerie Weinstein, University of Nevada, Reno, German Quarterly Book Review

Book Description

At the turn of the century, German popular entertainment was a realm of unprecedented opportunity for Jewish performers. This study explores the terms of their engagement and pays homage to the many ways in which German Jews were instrumental in the birth of an incomparably rich world of popular culture. It traces the kaleidoscope of challenges, opportunities and paradoxes Jewish men and women faced in their interactions with predominantly gentile audiences.
