A Monumental Debate in Budapest : The Hentzi Statue and the Limits of Austro-Hungarian Reconciliation, 1852–1918
Two of the most iconic photosof the 1956 Hungarian revolution involve a colossal statue of Stalin, erected in 1951 and toppled on the first day of the anti-Soviet uprising. One of these pictures shows Stalin's decapitated head, abandoned in the street as curious pedestrians amble by. The other shows a tall stone pedestal with nothing on it but a lonely pair of bronze boots. Situated near Heroes' Square, Hungary's national pantheon, the Stalin statue had served as a symbol of Hungary's subjugation to the Soviet Union; and its ceremonious and deliberate destruction provided a poignant symbol for the fall of Stalinism.
Crisis of Rabbinical Authority : Nehemias Trebitsch as Moravian Chief Rabbi, 1832-1842
This article will examine Nehemias Trebitsch’s tenure as Moravian Chief Rabbi (1832–1842), placing particular emphasis on the string of bitter and protracted conflicts that “made him many enemies” among the Jewish population in Moravia. For the most part, these conflicts were initiated by Nehemias Trebitsch, who sought to use his authority as Chief Rabbi to keep reform-minded rabbis out of the fifty-two Moravian Jewish communities under his purview. From the beginning of his tenure as Chief Rabbi, he continuously tried to shore up his authority over the religious and educational affairs of Moravian Jewry, but his attempts repeatedly backfired. As it turned out, his diplomatic skills did not even approach the level of his Talmudic erudition.
