Seminar 14 : Seminar 14 By Lucy Period 1 2/27/09 Question : Question Discuss the ways in which European Jews were affected by and responded to liberalism, nationalism, and anti-Semitism in the nineteenth century. (1995 #6) Thesis : Thesis European Jews in the nineteenth century were affected by and responded to liberalism, nationalism, and anti-Semitism in many various ways. When liberalism spread throughout Europe and gave the Western European Jews full rights, they eagerly responded by taking up jobs that became newly available to them and becoming more involved with politics and their countries. However, nationalism came and soon they were facing racism again, as rumors circulated around them and soon became blamed for everything bad. Some chose to emigrate while others chose to stay and wait it out. In Russia, a new Tsar was in place and Jews were powerless to pogroms and unfair laws. Thousands emigrated while others tried to help improve the situation. Though liberalism made Jews equal citizens, nationalism and anti-Semitism only made racism worse towards them. Most Jews chose to emigrate, but there were still the brave few who attempted to improve conditions. Liberalism : Liberalism New Rights! : New Rights!
