Jahrhunderts geprägte allgemeine Rezeption zu einer negativen Beurteilung Mahlers gelangt, den sie mit den Maßstäben des 19. Jahrhunderts nicht vereinbaren kann, und erst durch den generellen Paradigmenwechsel um 1960 zu einer reflektierteren Haltung gegenüber dem 19. Jahrhundert und dadurch zu einer veränderten Beurteilung Mahlers findet, geht umgekehrt die Avantgarde nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg von einer apodiktischen Verwerfung des 19.

Das mutet bei einem Schnapsbrenner vielleicht merkwürdig an, aber Bernhard Mahlers Bücher- und Leseleidenschaft ist mehrfach bezeugt – sie gehört, wenn auch meistens nicht so ausgeprägt, zum Aufstiegsrüstzeug der jüdischen Generation um die Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Dass ein kaiserliches Dekret in Mahlers Geburtsjahr es ermöglichte, dass Juden auch in nicht ganz unbedeutenden Städten wie Iglau sich ansiedeln und Besitz erwerben konnten, und dass Bernhard Mahler diese Chance sofort und tatkräftig ergriff und es in wenigen Jahren zum Hausbesitzer und angesehenen Likörfabrikanten brachte, zeugt ebenfalls von der Aufstiegsenergie der Familie, die an den Sohn weitergegeben wurde.
