Show Summary Details


This chapter presents some concluding thoughts from the author. The history of Jewish daily life does much more than provide static snapshots of the past. It opens up new vistas and shows that German-Jewish history is not merely a simple, linear story that takes us from the limitations and insecurities of the 17th century to the successful achievement of emancipation in the 19th, back down to the dark days of the Nazi era. The history of daily life also provides a three-dimensional perspective that illuminates gender relations, the interactions among generations, and those between Jews and non-Jews.
