7 Jacques Le Rider emphasizes that the Jewish intellectuals of the older generation often hardly took the anti-Semitic troublemakers (such as Lueger) seriously. This underestimation of the real danger of Viennese anti-Semitism was a hallmark of the liberal old guard. Cf.

9 Gelber is of the opinion that the first generation of Zweig researchers, especially Stefan Zweig's first wife, Friderike von Winternitz (Stefan Zweig, How I experienced it, 1948), and the Zweig biographer Donald Prater (European of Yesterday, 1968) only briefly mention Zweig's relationship to Judaism and Jerusalem in their well-known books.

20 In 1881 Stefan Zweig's birth with the Hebrew name Samuel was entered in the birth register for the Israelite religious community in Vienna. Presumably the writer was called by his Jewish first name on the Sabbath and on public holidays.

28 The author's idea of ​​a territorial solution to the Jewish question can be found in the introduction to the work of Joseph Leftwich What Will Happen to the Jews (1936). Mark H. Gelber, Judaism and Jewish Identity, P. 757. In an undated letter to Arnold Zweig, presumably written in May 1938, the author declared himself against Zionism: “Palestine was also a sentimentality, an anti-logism […]. Palestine can no longer be carried and subsidized by impoverished and exhausted Judaism [...] ”. Because of the urgent situation of the threatened Jewish masses and the Jewish refugees, Stefan Zweig might have wanted to make a pragmatic decision. Quoted from Mark H. Gelber, Stefan Zweig, Judaism and Zionism, P. 31.

47 Cf. Michel Foucault's statement on the heterotopia of the cemetery: “[...] Every heterotopia [has] a very specific function within society, and the same heterotopia can, depending on the synchronicity of the culture in which it is located, like this or so work. As an example I take the strange heterotopia of the cemetery […] ”. According to Foucault, the cemetery shows the extent to which this is a heterotopia that can combine "several rooms, several placements" in a single place, "which are inherently incompatible". As a spatial staging of death, the cemetery can be understood as an appearance of non-genuine spatial significance. P. 40. Cf. Michel Foucault, "Other spaces", in Karlheinz Barck et al. (Ed.), Aesthesis. Perception today of an aesthetic or perspectives of another aesthetic, Leipzig, Reclam, 1992, pp. 34-46, here pp. 40-41.

48 Mark H. Gelber states in this connection that Zweig was the model for his novella In the snowwho were the works of supporters of the Association for Culture and Science of Judaism, such as Heinrich Heine (The Rabbi von Bacherach, 1840), Karl Emil Franzos (The Jews of Barnow, 1877), Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (Polish stories, 1887, or New stories of the Jews, 1881) with their stories about the flagellants. Mark H. Gelber, The Impact of Martin Buber on Stefan Zweig, P. 321. The writers of the culture and science of Judaism in particular pleaded for the self-assertion of Jewish identity in the multilingualism and pluriculturalism of the diaspora in modern times.
