Abstract

to ensure that sixteenth-century German Jews are part of the story of early modern Jewish society and culture. Adam Shear University of Pittsburgh Jüdisches München: Vom Mittelalter bis zur Gegenwart, edited by Richard Bauer and Michael Brenner. Munich: C. H. Beck, 2006. 287 pp. 19.90. In 1866, in the presence of Chancellor Bismarck and various Berlin notables, the massive Oranienburger Straße synagogue was dedicated. The building visibly underlined the new importance of the capital as the center of Jewish life. To root the Jewish community more firmly in this new city, Ludwig Geiger composed Geschichte der Juden in Berlin (1871) for the community's 200th anniversary celebration. Almost a hundred years later and after the Holocaust, Hans Lamm recollected the history of Bavarian Jewry in Von Juden in München: Ein Gedenkbuch (1958) to capture the peculiar local culture and identity of Munich Jewry and memorialize its past. Between these two publications lies the path of German Jewry, from integration to destruction, displacement, loss, remembrance, and new beginnings. These two books moreover remind us that Jews constructed their culture and remembered their past often in a local key. Jüdisches München, like Geiger's history, recalls the past and anticipates future growth,
