This paper explores the dissemination of anti-Semitic themes, motives, and clichés in the k. & k. province of Bukovina, around 1900. It is argued that the abrupt unleashing of brutally anti-Jewish discourses in this most eastern province of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, after the anti-Semitic wave which had reached its peak in Vienna and in the center of Austria in the last decades of the 19th century, goes back to local social and national conflicts deeply rooted in the contradictions of the modernization process. The fact that the Romanian politician Aurel Onciul—originally involved in the liberal opposition to the political domination of the large estate-owners—posed as one of the beacons of this ideological approach, does not only reveal an opportunistic alignment of Romanian political groupings with the Christian Socialists under Karl Lueger after the 1907 imperial elections, but also illustrates the radically anti-modern trend in the political thinking of the emerging middle class that was to have serious consequences for the political development in post-World War Romania. This multi-layered deconstruction of this episode of Bukovina’s history, under-researched in the academic literature to date, is based on a meticulous study of the printed press in the urban center of Czernowitz prior to 1914, which depicts the co-existence of linguistically- and nationally-diverse cultural spaces but also the “impossibility” of their inter-cultural integration.
