People of the Air: The Spatial Experience of German Jews in the Third Reich

Following the Nazification of German public space, Jews were forced to navigate new exclusionary situations in the streets and plazas, on the roads, and in a variety of public institutions (such as public libraries) as well as in nature. Moreover, Jewish spaces, like cemeteries, synagogues, and even the home, were transformed and imbued with new meaning. Diaries, personal letters, and press materials give us a glimpse of these spatial realities.
