In her book “Jews in Germany after the Holocaust” (1997) , Lynn Rapaport indifferently uses the words “Germans” or “Non-Jews” to refer to German gentiles. Next to them are the “Jews in Germany”.
According to her: “the central theme around which community life is organized can be summarized as an edict like 'one shall keep one’s distance from the Germans'.” (p.4)
50 years after the holocaust , it seems that Mrs. Rapaport still ignores that Jewish is not a nationality in modern Germany. Jews holding the German nationality are equally “German”, aren’t they? Claiming the opposite would simply be anti-Semitic.
I would be interested to know whether Mrs. Rapaport would refer to Jewish Nobel laureate Fritz Haber , a very patriotic German indeed, as “German” or as “Jew”. He was simply both.
