Ausstellungskatalogcover zu "Rache: Geschichte und Fantasie"

This book on the exhibition of the same name at the Jewish Museum Frankfurt deals, for the first time, with the cultural-historical connections between Jewish fantasies of revenge, anti-Semitic projections and acts of revenge by Jews during and after Nazi rule. Cinematic, literary and graphic stories, pop cultural tales, traditional legends and religious texts focusing on this ambivalent topic are presented in eloquent images and essays by well-known authors.
