The events surrounding the Munich Putsch on the 8th and 9th of November 1923 are now regarded as thoroughly researched. However, little attention has been paid to the anti-Semitic thrust of the attempted coup and how Jews perceived the events. The present essay takes up this research question, examining the putsch from the point of view of the Jews in Bavaria and defining the reasons anti-Semitism had strengthened considerably in Bavaria after the revolution of 1918/19. It also explores the different reactions to this.
