Dimension2: Contemporary German-Language Literature

SELIGMANN, Rafael
Rafael Seligmann was born in Israel in 1947, the child of German-Jewish immigrants. Since 1957 he has lived in Germany, where he has taught political science in Munich. Since 1978 he has been writing, both journalistically and creatively. He is one of the few contemporary German authors who are outspoken about their Jewishness. One of his central themes is the relationship of Jews and Germans, which he brought to the point in a question he raised in his 1989 novel Rubinsteins Versteigerung (Rubinstein's Auction): "Will the Germans ever forgive us their guilty conscience?"


Der Musterjude (The Model Jew), from Der Musterjude, (Hildesheim: Claassen Verlag [now part of Verlagshaus Goethestrasse, Munich], 1997): Vol 5, No. 1
