The First World War confronted the Jewish population in many European countries with almost insoluble problems between national patriotism and solidarity across national borders. In Germany at the beginning of the war, there was hope that a truce could promote their finally being accepted as part of German society. In the end, however, the war proved to be the crucial catalyst of German-Jewish dissimilation. The historian Ernst Piper has created in "Night Over Europe" a vast cultural historical panorama of the First World War and directs his attention here to the situation of the Jewish minority.
