Title: Actions of Individuality: The Jewish Experience during the Weimar Republic
Developed under the guidance of Dr. James Martin, History

Before the horrors of the Holocaust, Jews in Germany experienced a brief moment of social, political, and economic openness during the Weimar Republic. This research examines several significant Jewish figures and how, when presented with new opportunities, they advocated for personal passions instead of conforming.
