Summary note
Describes the relations between assimilated Jews of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the revolutionaries, as reflected in the German-language Austrian press and especially in three Jewish publications: the "Österreichisches Central-Organ für Glaubensfreiheit, Cultur, Geschichte und Literatur der Juden", published in Vienna but dealing mainly with Jewish affairs in the provinces; "Der ungarische Israelit", published in Pest; and the "Zeitung" (printed in a Judaized German in Hebrew letters), published in Lemberg for the Jews of Galicia. Relates, also, to articles in "Der Orient" dealing with Austro-Hungarian Jewry. Jews took part in the revolution, which they hoped would lead to their own emancipation; and indeed the revolutionary government granted them equal rights. But their prominence led to a backlash, not only among opponents of the revolution but even among the revolutionaries themselves. In Hungary, for instance, they were forced out of the national guard. The general anarchy at the time favored pogroms. The periodicals discuss such issues as taking leadership roles in the fight for freedom vs. restraint in order not to provoke antisemitism; integration vs. national Jewish identity: and, as the situation grew worse, emigration vs. loyalty to the fatherland. (From the Bibliography of the Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism).
