Wed, 25. Jun 2014, 19:30-21:30 Stefan Zweig’s Jewish and European Sensibilities Lecture by Prof. Dr. Mark Gelber, Beer Sheva (in German)

Even though Stefan Zweig (1881-1942) already during his life – and still seventy years after his suicide – was praised as the great European, his biographers often neglected or underestimated the Jewish aspects of his career. The Jewish context of his life was complicated. Mark Gelber shows in his presentation, how Zweig’s being Jewish and Jewish subjects in his writing became an inseparable component of his work – and how this Jewish sensibility was interrelated to his European sensibilities. These two senisibilities prooved to be – apart from temporary inconsistencies – as highly compatible.
