Vienna’s Jewish Geography: 

Beyond the Leopoldstadt

Lisa Silverman (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee)

Inaugural Seminar on Vienna in Los Angeles

“Jewish space” immediately conjures up images of urban sites bearing visible evidence of Jews or Jewish culture, such as Vienna’s traditionally Jewish Leopoldstadt district. But other spaces can also be implicitly perceived as Jewish, for a variety of reasons. Through historical analysis of Vienna’s built environment and its depiction in the testimony of Austrian Jews forced to leave after 1938, this talk will explore how a complex coding of Jewish difference translated onto space affected how all Vienna’s residents navigated – and imagined – their city.
