Interreligious Love in Contemporary German Film and Literature

(p.153) 8 Interreligious Love in Contemporary German Film and Literature
Judaism, Christianity and Islam

This chapter focuses on a period in which the trope of the German Jewish love affair enjoyed particular popularity, namely in the decade after the reunification of Germany. The use of love as a model for group relations can personalize the political, individualize the social and romanticize power relations; it even legitimize the hegemonic forces of a dominant culture. The chapter discusses the models of interaction, communication and collaboration between the social groups through German feature films that dramatize interreligious love to highlight moments of solidarity and collaboration between Jews and non-Jews during the Third Reich, and the works of the German Jewish writer Barbara Honigmann, that depicts the memory of the National Socialist past as a lasting obstacle to Jewish Gentile love relationships.
