The Jews became educated in Western ways. “We are convinced that with a wise, cautious hand, sometimes firm, sometimes gentle, one can shape the Jews, just as any other people. Since, however, they are lower than others, culturally most distant from Christians, and their rituals, customs and habits are still foreign, their education to advance towards the Christians must therefore be realised even more carefully and cautiously not to alarm them and arouse their mistrust”. Carl Theodor Anton Freiherr von Dalberg (1744-1817).
