New historical insights into one of the most infamous episodes in the history of anti-Semitism Joseph S 1/4ss Oppenheimer " oeJew S 1/4ss "is one of the most iconic figures in the history of anti-Semitism. In 1733, Oppenheimer became the oecourt Jew of Carl Alexander, the duke of the small German state of W 1/4rttemberg. When Carl Alexander died unexpectedly, the W 1/4rttemberg authorities arrested Oppenheimer, put him on trial, and condemned him to death for unspecified oemisdeeds. On February 4, 1738, Oppenheimer was hanged in front of a large crowd just outside Stuttgart. He is most often remembered today through several works of fiction, chief among them a vicious Nazi propaganda movie made in 1940 at the behest of Joseph Goebbels. Investigating conflicting versions of Oppenheimer (TM)s life and death as told by his contemporaries, Yair Mintzker conjures an unforgettable picture of oeJew S 1/4ss in his final days that is at once moving, disturbing, and profound. The Many Deaths of Jew S 1/4ss is a masterful work of history and an illuminating parable about Jewish life in the fraught transition to modernity.
