Der Judenhass und die Juden

Front Cover
Oesterheld, 1918 - Antisemitism - 448 pages
Argues that Germans of all ethnic origins, including the Jews, are equally German. Ideological movements such as antisemitism and Zionism that refuse to recognize this truth endanger the unity of the nation. Although racism - group egoism and aversion to all who are different - is natural to human beings, it is possible to rise above it by thinking. However, although Jewish emancipation will continue to progress, it will never be complete because Jews will never give up their distinctiveness: their mission to proclaim the unity and sovereignty of God. Christians must learn to respect Judaism as the true Christianity; Jews must learn to accept Christ as their own greatest prophet (without converting). In a postscript written during the First World War, shows that the whole world hates and maligns the Germans in the same terms that the Germans malign the Jews. As victims of prejudice themselves, the Germans might come to recognize the baselessness of their own prejudice against the Jews.
