Speaker: Dr Jonathan C. Kaplan

At the turn of the 20th century, Vienna, the imperial and royal dual capital of a vast and multi-ethnic empire was home to one of Europe’s largest Jewish populations. It was also known as one of the continent’s capitals of antisemitism.

This lecture will explore the stereotyping of Vienna’s Jewish population through antisemitic caricatures that appeared in popular Viennese satirical magazines during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Such imagery reveals the complex and often conflicting imagery of Jews within one of Europe’s most ‘Jewish’ cities before WWII.
