The central themes of The Whitewashing of the Yellow Badge are the attitudes, behavior and actions of gentile towards Jew in postwar Germany. The analysis focuses on antisemitism and developing philosemitism in all aspects of life in the Federal Republic - a focus neglected in earlier works and critically important to the understanding of Germany after 1945. Topics include: occupiers and Germans - the Jews caught in between; American military government and German antisemitism; antisemitic and philosemitic stereotypes among blue-collar and white-collar workers; and, the political role of antisemitism and philosemitism in the formative period of the Federal Republic. This detailed and informative text is essential reading for anyone interested in Jewish and/or German history in the twentieth century.
