Abstract

Abstract:

German political policies and social pressures before, during, and immediately after the National Socialist period had considerable impact on the process of Jewish family formation. Personal ads placed in several leading newspapers based in Berlin reveal changing attitudes and parameters for the creation of partnerships and marriages during these decades, illustrating the complicated Jewish experience of emigration, survival, and self-identification during and after the Holocaust. The rise of the Nazis intensely altered the parameters of the search for a partner, changing expressions of self-description and highlighting very different life goals, just as the effects of the Nazi period would echo in postwar ads.
