The diasporic heritage of the German Jews. Networks and narrative identity


The decisive factor for this reflection is the debate that began in the early 1960s about the concept of "German-Jewish symbiosis". Gershom Scholem plaid a polarizing role in this context, since he was the first to firmly deny the legitimacy of such an expression, especially in his texts to the German-Jewish dialogue. This controversy can be followed up in various other sources, such as Scholem's exchanges of letters with intellectuals or in articles by other protagonists in Journals or newspapers, who answer to his statements or deal with the same topic. All these texts build a network which can be analysed at different levels : persons, references and signification. They contribute to the rebuilding of the Jewish identity after the Shoah.
