“The golem is a Jewish folkloric character. It is a man-made, man-like creature, usually made of soil and approximately life size...Representations of the golem changed over time; this paper argues that these changes reflect dovetailing stereotypes of Jews and Gentiles in Eastern Europe as well as the changing position many Jews came to take in response to attack.” From “Golem as Gentile, Golem as Sabra: An Analysis of the Manipulation of Stereotypes of Self and Other in Literary Treatments of a Legendary Jewish Figure” by Danusha V. Goska
