The Jünger Debatte is the publication organ of the Ernst and Friedrich Georg Jünger Society which brings together texts and documents related to the life, work and reception of the Jünger brothers. Due to its international importance, Ernst Jünger’s work is foregrounded.

Each volume has a thematic focus corresponding to the annual conference of the Jünger society. The initial volume will address Ernst Jünger’s relationship to Judaism. It includes contributions by Helmuth Kiesel, Reinhard Mehring, Detlev Schöttker, and Peter Trawny among others. The issue also includes an overview of recent publications on Jünger by Alexander Pschera, as well as an annotated selection of previously unpublished correspondence between Ernst Jünger and the Jewish historian Joseph Wulf, who survived Auschwitz and became a pioneer of Holocaust research in Germany.
