Peasants and Jews: Anti-Semitism and Rural Politics in Northwest Germany

The Project


This project has grown in a circuitous way. In 1996, while teaching at the Miami University campus in Luxembourg, I spent my free moments reading local and regional newspapers for a projected biography of Diederich Hahn, a major Agrarian political figure from the North Sea coast. As I found village election results, announcements for and reports of political rallies, and voluminous publish lists of supporters, I decided that I should systematize and map my data.
