Abstract

Since the 1990s, Turkish German and German Jewish literatures have presented Turks and Jews as forming a united minority front. The interminority goodwill by authors including Zafer Şenocak and Maxim Biller comes into relief with the webcomic Moishe Hundesohn (2006–2012), the only serialized Jewish-themed cartoon in postwar Germany. The comic strip by the Hamburg Jewish artist Daniel Haw was highly critical of Islam and ran at the border of political satire. This article outlines how a consideration of recent political debates and cultural productions upset the ascribed affinities between the Turkish German and German Jewish communities.
