Product Description

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2015 in the subject History Europe - Germany - National Socialism, World War II, , language: English, abstract: Beiträge zu Feminismus, Antisemitismus und Nationalsozialismus im 19./20. Jahrhundert: Vol. 10. The monograph "Trials and Tribulations on Mt Scopus" offers an introduction to the origins, work and goals of the Auguste Victoria Foundation, a German Protestant institution in Jerusalem, whose base was in Potsdam, Germany. It describes the eclectic range of visitors, guests and workers attending the Foundation and looks at members' attitudes towards local Jews and Arabs from the time of the Kaiser's visit in 1898 to the outbreak of the Second World War. The work provides insight into how these attitudes and relationships changed, especially in the 1930s when National Socialism was espoused by Germans living in British-ruled Palestine.
