When the Nazis came to power certain forenames, eg., Moses, Mendel, Julius, and surnames such as Levy, Jakobson and Goldschmidt, were considered characteristically Jewish. Drawing on records of formal applications to change one's name, together with the official correspondence involved, Bering shows how the legislation on name changing affected Jews in different ways, beginning with a brief attempt at integrating the Jews into society, and developing into an outright ban on name changing imposed on people of Jewish faith or descent. By recapturing the associations of certain names and showing how they affected the lives of their bearers, the author attempts to demonstrate the pervasiveness of antisemitism as a social force in everyday life over this period.
