This chapter examines István Bibó's essay ‘The Jewish Question’. It is not for its political relevance that Bibó's work on the Jewish question should be read today. The essay was written and first published in an era when many countries were groping for an answer to questions posed by the incredible tragedy of the Jewish people. Parallel to this was the search for an answer to ‘the collapse of respectable European society’. The date of the essay's publication is not the only reason to place Bibó's book among the most important works to have searched for an interpretation and explanation of the tragedy. The problem of how to represent and comprehend the Holocaust, as well as the historical and social issues of the Jewish question, are still at the forefront of scholarly debates.

Keywords:   István Bibó, The Jewish Question, Jewish question, Jewish people, European society, Holocaust
