The Austrian ?Kaffeehausjude? and other Clichés. Contemporary debates between 1880 and 1940, quite often with antisemitic content, located the Austrian and especially the Viennese Jews in the coffeehouse. During the last years there has been done fruitful scientific work on the topic, how Jews have been imagined and constructed in different ?Jewish? and ?non-Jewish? spaces as for example in the Viennese café [although the editors of recent books on the theme tried to manage their publications without Austrian scholars and they primarily concentrate on fin de siècle and the year 1900]. The purpose of the intended paper is to discuss the Viennese (old Austrian) coffee-house as ?Jewish place? concerning the Jewish self-perception and external perception starting in late 19th century not ending around 1900 or with the Nazi period. Coffeehouses of Viennese style could be found in many middle sized or larger city of the Habsburg Empire like Czernovitz, Krakow, Ljubljana, Graz, Salzburg, Linz, even in very small Grein. The paper includes the development up to our days which contains some surprises. Not only inner-Jewish discussions circled around alternative ?places? or spaces for ?the Jews? ? Max Nordau for example wanted to locate the ?new Jew? in the area of sports, especially practicing gymnastics, others like Sigmund Freud or Viktor Frankl preferred to see them in the Alps. And Friedrich Torberg wanted to see them in both spheres, saw the coffeehouse as ?missing link between ghetto and modern emancipation?. In an excursion the debates of the different ?Jewish spaces? in pre- and interwar-Vienna and Austria are presented. The focus of the presentation was both on the contemporary discourses as well as on selected (real) key events.
