Mixed Heritage Families
The Construction of Identity, its Relation to Gender Role Imbalance and Extreme Nationalism and The Background of the Denial of Anti-Semitism
George Kozma-Klein (Budapest)
This is a psycho-Historical Case Study of Emma Ritoók, a Pre-War Hungarian Writer in the context of her Anti-Freudist studies: Emma Ritoók and her anti-Semitism as a fantasy code for rank and/or self-respect that is broken by arrested gender development.
Conflicting "messianic" claims and other mythical-traditional issues (that are many times resulting in conflicts about everyday rituals and roles, culminating in gender relations' differing views) have the function of "uniting" (under the messianic ruler or his symbolic counterpart ) the people - or rather: the men among them - who stem from differing traditions and backgrounds.
