Abstract

Analysing previously-unpublished letters and papers from Markus Barth's literary estate, this article explores the contours of the relationships that Barth had with two of the leading figures in post-WWII North American Judaism - Michael Wyschogrod, and Emil Fackenheim. The correspondence shows, on the one hand, that Markus Barth was able to build upon his father Karl's theology of Israel. On the other hand, however, it shows how his theologically-based insistence on Christian-Jewish solidarity was undermined, and ultimately destroyed, by his equally fervent insistence on critiquing the Israeli foreign policies of Prime Ministers Golda Meir, Yitzhak Rabin, and Menachem Begin.
