. It is true that the central theme of On the Jewish Question is one supportive of the political rights of Jews. Bruno Bauer, against whom Marx was polemicizing in that essay, had argued that the political emancipation of the Jews, their availing themselves of political and civil rights within the democratic state, was incompatible with their Jewish particularism ; remaining Jewish they could not be true citizens. Against this, Marx counter-argued that political emancipation, so far from being incompatible with religious particularisms, presupposes them. The

a point when the synagogue was being extensively enlarged to accommodate growth in the Jewish community, the article provided an opportunity to outline the improving treatment of the Jews in England. ‘This country,’ it admitted, ‘is by no means free from the stigma of persecuting this downtrodden, malignantly harried race’. But Cromwell’s readmission of the ‘aristocracy of the Jewish race’, and the ‘large proportion of well-educated individuals who made this country their home’, had enabled ‘so many [to] have attained high position and honour in municipal

Verbal offences on the streets of Modena

4 The piazza: verbal offences on the streets of Modena There were twenty-two processi in which Jews were prosecuted for blasphemy, heretical blasphemy and insults in our period. These offences were allegedly committed in public, in a street, shop or piazza where most daily contact between Jews and Christians took place. These processi are considered as legal narratives in the same genre and show the efforts of the Inquisition to control Jewish speech. One should not suggest that these narratives are static – quite the contrary: verbal offences respond to the

favour the setting up of an Algerian national authority; secondly, ‘les fonctionnaires juifs (qui) imaginent eux aussi avec effroi la naissance d’un Etat algérien’ (‘Jewish civil servants (who) look upon the birth of an Algerian state with fear and trembling’) (Fanon 2001: 143 and 144; Fanon 1989: 154); finally, the majority of Jews, three-quarters of the Jewish population, who for the most part serve or aid the militias. The latter group makes ‘peu importante’ (‘unimportant’) the minority of Jews ‘engagé(s) activement dans les rangs du colonialisme’ (‘actively engaged

2 Marx's defence of Jewish emancipation and critique of the Jewish question The Jew … must cease to be a Jew if he will not allow himself to be hindered by his law from fulfilling his duties to the State and his fellow-citizens. (Bruno Bauer, Die Judenfrage ) 1 The Jews (like the Christians) are fully politically emancipated in various states. Both Jews and Christians are far from being

Cantilupe (d.1282). 3 Swinfield’s promotion of Cantilupe’s cult matters from a geographical standpoint because, perhaps in association with that trip, he procured—as adornment for the latter’s shrine—the monumental treasure known as the Hereford Cathedral mappamundi [map of the world] ( c .1290–1300). 4 A university theologian and political bishop who sat on the king’s council in the 1270s despite prior involvement (mid-1260s) in baronial rebellion, Thomas Cantilupe distinguished himself throughout his career for being an ‘inveterate enemy of the Jews’. 5 He was

discern Hermann Adler’s attitudes to the essential issues of Jewish belief, notably the Torah, Written and Oral, and the authority of Jewish Law (halakhah). We will also look at issues which were of great importance to Hermann Adler as a leader of emancipated Jewry in western Europe in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century: the relationship between Jews and non-Jews and religions other than Judaism, the role of secular learning and modern methods in Jewish learning, and Zionism. Adler was a member of the first generation of rabbis to consider some of these

of great tension for Leeds Jews; the low point came in June 1917 with the Leeds Anti-Jewish Riots when, with most of the fit men away in the army, a non-Jewish mob burst into the Leylands Jewish area and attacked women, children and the elderly. The war had a huge effect on the community as it moved young male Jews into the army and the non-Jewish world; it lost at least 160 of its best young men on the battlefield.

September, 1872) 1 During my youth I rather leaned toward the prognosis that the Jews of different countries would be assimilated and that the Jewish question would thus disappear in a quasi-automatic fashion. The historical development of the last quarter of a century has not confirmed this perspective … .The Jewish question, I repeat, is indissolubly bound up with the complete emancipation of humanity.

’. It was part of the process of what Lawrence Langer calls the victims’ ‘choiceless choices … shorn of dignity and any of the spiritual renown we normally associate with moral effort’. For the Jews, in the face of overwhelming power of the perpetrators and their isolation within the world of the bystanders, ‘whatever you chose, somebody loses’.5 Again, as with slavery, the Holocaust has had a lasting impact on the description and nomenclature of particular migrant stories beyond its specific chronology and place. At the other pole of journeying were those for whom
