On Christians and Jews [Einstein 1928q] Dated 30 June 1928[1] Published 1 November 1928 In: Die Wahrheit 7, no. 21 (1 November 1928): 4. It is misleading to speak of the “Christianization of the Jews”[2] or of the Jewification of Christians. In fact, there is a common development on common ground, along with the resulting influences, just as among the other components of the varied mixture of peoples who inhabit Europe. The question seems to me to be far more: Why do so many Europeans and Americans make such a fuss about Jews? However, answering this question intel- ligently is a hunt for “the others.” The “Decline of the West”[3] seems to me a fashionable disease that will be cured by oblivion.
