              Joseph Seuss Oppenheimer - Jew Seuss - is one of the most iconic figures in the history of anti-Semitism. In 1733, Oppenheimer became the court Jew of Carl Alexander, the duke of the small German state of Wurttemberg. When Carl Alexander died unexpectedly, the Wurttemberg authori...ties arrested Oppenheimer, put him on trial, and condemned him to death for unspecified misdeeds. On February 4, 1738, Oppenheimer was hanged in front of a large crowd just outside Stuttgart. He is most often remembered today through several works of fiction, chief among them a vicious Nazi propaganda movie made in 1940 at the behest of Joseph Goebbels. The Many Deaths of Jew Suss is a compelling new account of Oppenheimer's notorious trial. Drawing on a wealth of rare archival evidence, Yair Mintzker investigates conflicting versions of Oppenheimer's life and death as told by four contemporaries: the leading inquisitor in the criminal investigation, the most important eyewitness to Oppenheimer's final days, a fellow court Jew who was permitted to visit Oppenheimer on the eve of his execution, and one of Oppenheimer's earliest biographers. What emerges is a lurid tale of greed, sex, violence, and disgrace - but are these narrators to be trusted? Meticulously reconstructing the social world in which they lived, and taking nothing they say at face value, Mintzker conjures an unforgettable picture of Jew Seuss in his final days that is at once moving, disturbing, and profound.

              From acclaimed historian Barbara Stollberg-Rilinger, an incomparable introduction to this momentous period in the history of Europe The Holy Roman Empire emerged in the Middle Ages as a loosely integrated union of German states and city-states under the supreme rule of an emperor..., and would endure until its dissolution in 1806 during the Napoleonic Wars. Barbara Stollberg-Rilinger provides a concise history of empire, presenting an interpretation of its unique political culture and remarkably durable institutions. In a narrative spanning three turbulent centuries, Stollberg-Rilinger shows how it was a political body unlike any other, bound together by personal loyalty and reciprocity, tradition and shared purpose, and constantly reenacted by solemn rituals.

              Die Vielen Tode Des Jud Suss: Justizmord an Einem Hofjuden (Hardback, 1. Auflage 2020 ed.)

              Der Hofjude Joseph Suss Oppenheimer - Jud Suss - gehort zu den symboltrachtigsten Figuren der Geschichte des Antisemitismus. Als der Herzog von Wurttemberg Karl Alexander unerwartet verstarb, verhafteten die Behorden Oppenheimer, stellten ihn vor Gericht und verurteilten ihn schl...iesslich fur niemals schlussig bewiesene Missetaten zum Tode. Vor grossem Publikum wurde er am 4. Februar 1738 vor den Toren Stuttgarts erhangt. Yair Mintzker rekonstruiert kontrare Erzahlungen von Oppenheimers Leben und Tod durch vier seiner Zeitgenossen. Zu Wort kommen der leitende Ermittler im Strafverfahren gegen ihn, ein Universitatslehrer und ein anderer Hofjude - beide durften den Haftling vor seiner Hinrichtung besuchen - und Oppenheimers erster Biograf. Das Ergebnis ist ein lebendiges, bewegendes und gleichzeitig verstorendes Bild der letzten Tage von Jud Suss, das schlussendlich mehr uber die Verfasser der Berichte als uber Oppenheimer offenbart. Die vielen Tode des Jud Suss ist ein gekonnt erzahltes, innovatives geschichtswissenschaftliches Werk und eine erhellende Parabel judischen Lebens im schwierigen Umbruch zur Moderne. Die englische Originalausgabe The Many Deaths of Jew Suss. The Notorious Trial and Execution of an Eighteenth-Century Court Jew wurde mit dem National Jewish Book Award im Fach Geschichte ausgezeichnet.
