Martin Duberman’s fiction-history – Jews Queers Germans – dives headlong into the murky political waters of Weimar Germany, dramatizing anti-Semitism, homophobia, and a pervasive melancholia over an imagined sense of lost national pride that helped transform a country that was progressive for its time into a Nazi dystopia in only a few short decades. It is a story that seems apt to our current political climate. We live, after all, in a country resplendent in wealth and privilege that nevertheless feels ill at ease over incremental social advances and widening economic disparity. We are deeply divided over how to address systemic issues at the heart of that disenfranchisement. And despite our relative wealth and privilege, we are willing to court autocratic politics in hopes of chancing upon a solution.
