Jud Süß (Hauff novel)
Jud Süß is an early 19th century novella by Wilhelm Hauff based on the early 18th century German Jewish banker and financial adviser Joseph Süß Oppenheimer. In Hauff's novella, Joseph Süß Oppenheimer has been brought up as a Jew. His unfair business practices result in the betrayal of an innocent girl. Consequently, he is arrested, convicted and sentenced to be hanged. While awaiting execution, he discovers that he is not Jewish, but prefers to face his sentence rather than turning his back on the community he grew up in.
