Lecture Meeting with Roger Lustig
“Germany’s Jews in the 1800s”

Until 1871, Germany’s Jews were subjects of dozens of different states, each with different laws and attitudes toward its Jewish population. Napoleon emancipated most of Germany’s Jews and led Prussia to do likewise for almost all the rest, but after he was gone, the many German states – most with new boundaries – returned their Jews to one or another special legal status.

Roger will be reviewing where the larger Jewish congregations and rural communities lived in Germany and how to determine which states ruled over them at a given time.
