The Kaiser’s Jewish Soldiers: Loyalty, Identity, Betrayal

24 June - 8 October 2014 | Wiener Library, London
The Kaiser's Jewish Soldiers

Some 100,000 German Jews donned military uniform and approximately 12,000 Jewish soldiers died fighting for the German Army between 1914 and 1918. The Holocaust has cast a long shadow over this moment in history, but for many Jews the experience of the First World War was not defined by antisemitism, but rather by a profound sense of commitment to the German fatherland.
