Abstract:

Sammy Gronemann’s first literary success was his 1920 bestseller Tohuwabohu. This satirical novel is a period piece that marks the start of Gronemann’s literary career and presents a humorous portrait of Jewish life in Berlin after the turn of the century. Albert Einstein considered it a “masterpiece” because of its perspicacious and lucid depiction of the many facets of German Judaism. This annotated version includes yet unpublished documents, extensive commentaries and an overview over the book’s reception history, along with a short essay on the impact of the book’s title on the German language.
