  1. Jastrow, Marcus. HIGAYON LEV ISRAELITISCHES GEBETBUCH FÜR DIE HÄUSLICHE ANDACHT [INCLUDING THE FIRST AMERICAN REFORM HAGGADAH] [BOUND WITH] GEBETE FÜR KINDER [AS ISSUED] (1875). Philadelphia: 1875. 1st edition thus. Original cloth binding, 8vo, [4], 164, 20 pages (188 pages total). Text in Hebrew and German. Goldman 63; This edition unrecorded and apparently unknown to Ya'ari or Yudlov. THE FIRST AMERICAN REFORM HAGGADAH. Higayon Lev (Logic of the Heart) was a liturgical volume for private devotion which was published to supplement the popular Avodat Yisrael prayerbook that Jastrow had created, based on the earlier work of Benjamin Szold. Jastrow’s revisions “creatively modified the classical contours of the Siddur preserved in Szold’s version and added many new prayers. ” Among its contents are: selections from Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers); daily prayers for women, children (and adults who lack the time to complete the regular liturgy) , all accompanied by a non-literal German translation. There is also a fascinating appendix of children’s prayers which includes, in addition to the more standard basic prayers, special prayers to be recited on one’s birthday as well as on a parent’s birthday. The most important component of the new edition however is Jastrow's Haggadah, (pages 35-54) , the first printed in America that demonstrates the influence of Reform. Here, the Hebrew elements are reduced to a minimum and incorporate many emendations, even to such quintessential texts as Ha Lahma Anya, Vehi She’amdah and the Four Questions (here reduced to a single query). When Jastrow reprinted the text with an English translation three years later, he wrote, "this plain narrative is well adapted to suggest many a thought as to what duties are incumbent on the Israelites of our own days, and especially in countries like ours where the morn of religious liberty has already dawned and is shedding its roseate light over all inhabitants alike. ” SUBJECT(S): Judaism -- Prayers and devotions. Reform Judaism -- Liturgy -- Texts. Siddurim. OCLC lists 8 copies worldwide. Some wear and light staining, in the original blind-tooled binding, is (kh-6-1B) (ID #36544) $5500.00.







  3. Rozenberg [Rosenberg], YEHUDAH YUDL. MIKVEH [MIKVAH] YEHUDAH: … LAASOT BE-KHOL BAYIT MIKVEH KATAN.... Toronto: [The Author?], 1913?. 1st edition. Original paper wrappers, 12mo, 31 pages. Includes facsimile; 18 cm. Title translates into English as "Mikveh Yehudah: To carry out in every Mikveh Katan..." The first non-liturgical Hebrew book published only in Canada (a Hebrew title, Derekh ha-shalom, published in both Toronto and New York appeared in 1910; Congregation Shearith Israel in Montreal published an order of prayer booklet in 1890 for the opening of a new Shul). Instructions on building a home-mikveh. In Hebrew and Yiddish. Friedberg, Mem-3382. Rabbi Rosenberg believed that there was no halachic barrier to using city water to build a small mikvah in one’s own home. This was also the opinion of Rabbi P. Horenblass of Warsaw in his approbation (dated 1913) , a facsimile of which is included in the book. Rabbi Horenblass states that this idea should not be considered a reform, warning that “You should ignore the ‘Lashon Hara’ of ignorant lightheaded people who learn only to insult the real Talmidei Chachamim of this generation. ” Rabbi David Miller of Oakland espoused a similar point of view, though this view was not well received in Orthodox circles. Nevertheless, it would have been an important tool in small Jewish communities in Canada and the American West at the time. Rabbi Rosenberg arrived in Toronto in 1913 and move to Montreal in 1919. For a biography and appreciate of Rabbi Rosenberg’s personality, see N. Baumol, “Harav Yehudah (Yudel) Rosenberg, ” in Yovel Buch Talmud Torah Eitz Chaim, page 104-119. Probably published and distributed by Rabbi Rosenberg himself, as it includes his stamp on the final page. SUBJECT(S) Mikveh.

"Published... Under the auspices of the American Jewish congress. "-- Foreword. Collection of detailed reports on the Jewish persuctions as of late 1941 throughout Europe, and organized by region, with anecdotal as well as statistical evidence and sources cited. The report came out just 2 months before the notorious Wansee Conference where German extermination policy became official, and the reports here, in detail and in in broad brush stroakes, reflect the quickly deteriorating situation for Jews under German occupation. For example from the Polish section: “We must declare at the very outset that words are powerless to portray the agony and suffering of Polish Jewry in the 80 days of Germany role. The hell-like reality of the Polish Jews, a hell-like reality which has already lasted more than 80o days, and where literally every minute, every second demands Jewish victims, without a stop, without any interruption, and the hand of the torturer and murderer, the robber and offender is still unwearied, --this reality is not to he described in words. Let the reader multiply what is described tenfold, twentyfold, and he will perhaps come near to an idea of the life of our brothers under the German lash” (p. POL-9) Sections include: Greater Germany, Rumania, Hungary, Italy, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Luxemburg, Holland, France, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Greece, Finland, Nazi-Soviet War Area, Refugees, Relief, & Conclusions. “Prepared by the Institute of Jewish Affairs; submitted to the Inter-American Jewish Conference, November 23-24-25, 1941, Baltimore, Md. ” Includes refugee and relief activity at conclusion, and 2 pages of corrections and addenda at rear.

VOL II, NRS 27-52 (JULY 5- DEC 27, 1940). 25 ISSUES, UNINTERRUPTED RUN. Prag, Jüdischen Kultusgemeinde In Prag, 1940. 1st edition. Folio. Newspaper. Illustrated throughout. Includes many advertisements and numerous personal family announcements. Following the Kristallnacht pogroms of November 1938, Jewish life in Germany and Czechoslovakia was even further curtailed and all remaining Jewish newspapers were shut down by the government. In their place, the Nazi Party ordered the creation of a single, new Jewish newspaper, "Das Jüdische Nachrichtenblatt, " that would be directly under Gestapo control. It was published concurrently in Berlin, Vienna and Prague and was occupied to a large extent with announcing the ever-increasing number of anti-Semitic discriminations, orders and exclusions imposed by the Reich government. Over the course of its history, the editors of the Jüdische Nachrichtenblatt were Leo Kreindler (1938-42) and Willi Pless (1942-43). The Berlin edition ran from the 23rd November, 1938 until the final issue of 4th June 1943. The Prague edition continued until 1945. In a ghoulish twist of Nazi irony, Gentiles were forbidden from reading the Jüdische Nachrichtenblatt yet the newspaper's targeted readership, the Jews, were literally hounded to their deaths by the very authorities who presided over the newspaper's ownership! See Reiner Burger, Von Goebbels Gnaden: "Jüdisches Nachrichtenblatt" 1938-1943 (2001). A mixed collection of 102 issues from Berlin and Prague sold at auction in 2015 for 9225.00 USD.

The title translates as: “Accusing the Nazis of their Crimes, 1939-1945: The Role of Polish Artists from Krakow and the Krakow Society of Fighters for Freedom and Democracy. ” Text in Polish with summaries in Russian, French, English and German. “Under the black wall of the Death Block at KL Auschwitz, a great many of Cracow’s artists, arrested in the Spring of 1942, met their death, while others went to fill of the camps dispersed through the Third Reich, to die of starvation and disease, from torture and exhaustion. The prison community, though evidently ignorant of the private directives issued by the central SS authorities for the destruction of the Polish leading circles, by instinct, as it were, and desirous to save these links so essential to the nation’s organism, tried to do its best to alleviate the imprisoned artists’ camp existence. Everything that could be done was done, frequently wth touching proof of loving solicitude [sic]. Artists were always given first place on the prisoner self-help lists, and surrounded with an atmosphere of true respect, a thing so rare and priceless in the circumstances of camp life. Their fellow-sufferers tried even to provide them with some sort of primitive conditions for work, and every sketch, design or sculpture produced under illegal or semi-legal conditions, was considered almost as it if were sacred, being another proof of resistance, another sign of survival of those very forces the enemy was so keen to destroy” (Tadeusz Holuj, pp 152-153).

Miller of the Civil Affairs Branch of the U. S. Army Signal Corps on April 16, 1945.). In the year following the defeat of the Nazis, exhibitions of photos showing the horrors of the Concentration Camps were a way to show the people of Europe what had been done by the Germans and their allies, and, eventually, to build support for the idea of War Crimes trials. “Foto's...

His chief works were the pioneer study A Grammar of the Aramaic Idiom Contained in the Babylonian Talmud, and a Hebrew book on the same subject, Dikduk Aramit Bavlit.

Catalogue de Livres et Brochures des XIXe et XXe Siècles; not in Nettlau. Rare first Yiddish edition: Nettlau lists many translations of The Conquest of Bread but does not know this Yiddish translation. Published in London during Kropotkin's exile in England, the translation was done by Abraham Frumkin and Moshe Katz, both active in the Yiddish anarchist movement in the US and England. "The whole theory of anarchist communism is developed particularly in The Conquest of Bread, which was published in Paris as late as 1892, though the articles that composed it had been written during the preceding decade…. He [Kropotkin] was its great apostle and popularizer, but it is doubtful if he was the actual inventor. The feature that distinguishes anarchist communism from other libertarian doctrines is the idea of free distribution, which is older than anarchism itself" (G. Woodcock, Anarchism, p. 188). Abraham Frumkin (1872-1946), the son of Israel Dov Frumkin, was a leading Jewish anarchist. When he moved from Constantinople (Istanbul) to London in 1896, he became a friend of Rudolf Rocker, and they opened a Yiddish Anarchist printing house together in London that year.

From 1861 to 1870 he was rabbi at Endingen, Switzerland, where he fought strenuously for Jewish rights; thereafter he was rabbi and preacher in Budapest… Kayserling's reputation rests on his long series of pioneering publications on the history of Spanish Jewry and the Marranos, based to a great degree on original and, in some cases manuscript, sources.

  121. Einhorn, David; edited by Kaufmann Kohler. AUSGEWÄHLTE PREDIGTEN UND REDEN. New York: No Publisher, 1880. 1st edition. Original Publisher’s Cloth, 8vo, viii, 399 pages. Title translates as “Selected sermons and speeches.” Singerman 2906. David Einhorn (1809-1879) was an American rabbi and Reform leader. His outspoken anti-slavery views sparked a riot in Baltimore, but he continued his work in Philadelphia and New York. German homilies by Dr. David Einhorn. Einhorn was born in Dispeck, Bavaria, and received his rabbinical training at Furth, near his birthplace. He studied philosophy at Erlangen, Wurzburg, and Munich. His thinking was influenced by the ideas of F. W. Schelling. In 1838 he was elected rabbi of the community at Wellhausen near Uffenheim, but the Bavarian government would not confirm his appointment on account of his liberal views. Four years later he became Landesrabbiner of Birkenfeld in the Grand Duchy of Oldenberg. At the Frankfort Rabbinical Conference of 1845, he took a decided view in favor of introducing the vernacular into the service and of eliminating prayers for the restoration of sacrifices and a Jewish state. Three years earlier, in coming to the defense of the position taken up by Abraham Geiger in his controversy with Solomon Titkin, he had rejected the divine authority of the Talmud and upheld the right to diverge from ceremonial laws. In 1847 Einhorn succeeded Samuel Holdheim as chief rabbi of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. There he was involved in controversy with Franz Delitzsch, the Christian Hebraist, for having pronounced a blessing in the synagogue over an uncircumcised child. Einhorn's radical religious standpoint jeopardized his position. In January 1852 he became rabbi of the Reform congregation of Budapest, but after two months the government closed the temple. While living in Budapest, Einhorn began his work Das Prinzip des Mosaismus, but completed only one volume (1854). Denied any opportunity in Europe, Einhorn became rabbi of the Har Sinai Congregation of Baltimore (1855). His arrival in the United States coincided with the Cleveland Rabbinical Conference, which, under the leadership of Isaac Mayer Wise, adopted a platform designed to permit a broadly based union among the various tendencies in American Judaism. Einhorn regarded this platform as treachery to the cause of Reform and denounced it violently. This marked the beginning of a bitter feud between Einhorn, the uncompromising Reformer, and I. M. Wise, who was ready to moderate his Reform in the interests of unity. Einhorn expounded his ideas in his monthly magazine Sinai (German, 7 vols., 1856–62) and gave them expression in his prayer book Olat Tamid (1856), which was no mere shortening of the traditional liturgy, but a new work written mainly in German. Einhorn's sojourn in Baltimore was cut short in 1861, when his unsparing denunciation of slavery placed him in danger from the mob. He became rabbi of Congregation Kenesseth Israel, Philadelphia, and in 1866 moved to New York as rabbi of Congregation Adath Israel, which was later known as Temple Beth El. His was the dominant personality at the Philadelphia Rabbinical Conference which met in 1869 and adopted a thoroughgoing Reform platform. Einhorn's farewell sermon, delivered after a quarter of a century in America, contained a plea for the cultivation of German as the vehicle for the ideas of Reform Judaism. If the dogmatic Reform upon which he insisted dominated neither the Union of American Hebrew Congregations nor Hebrew Union College at their inception, his spirit came to influence them later. Kaufman Kohler, his son-in-law and disciple, formulated the Pittsburgh Platform of 1885, which was the basis of American Reform for a generation, and later became president of Hebrew Union College; Einhorn's Olat Tamid served as the model for the Union Prayer Book. A letter which Einhorn wrote in 1844 summed up his theological system: "In all its stages, Judaism shows its capacity for continuous development both as to its form and its spirit, insofar as the latter became ever clearer and purer in the human consciousness; and no Israelite who knows his religion will deny it the power of perfectibility. Its essence, which is truth uniting all men, was from the beginning intended to overcome the exclusiveness attached to the form, which is national; but insofar as the latter served as an armor of protection and as the priestly garb of Israel among the nations, it cannot with impunity be cast off until the former in its entire inner force and its all-encompassing extent will have penetrated the whole human family, and Israel (Mosaism) will have fulfilled its priestly mission at the arrival of the Messianic era."

Vastly popular, the book was read by millions and was in its 49th edition by 1944 (330.000 copies). The ideas espoused by the work greatly influenced Hitler and the Nazis during their rise to power after World War I.[citation needed] Fritsch also founded an anti-semitic journal - the Hammer (in 1902) and this became the basis of a movement, the Reichshammerbund, in 1912."

  215. Meier, Lili; Klarsfeld, Serge. THE AUSCHWITZ ALBUM: LILLY JACOB'S ALBUM [RARE FIRST PRINTING]. New York, Beate Klarsfeld Foundation, 1980. 1st edition, first printing. Original Paper wrappers, Oblong 4to, [128] pages, mostly illustrations. 23 x 31 cm. Text in English. The rare first edition of the what came to be one of the most important photographic records of the Holocaust. It was not offered for sale, but was published by the Klarsfeld foundation in a limited run of 1000 copies and distributed to a select list of libraries and institutions. “The Auschwitz Album is a unique photographic record of the Holocaust of the Second World War. A collection of photographs taken inside a Nazi German death camp, it is the only surviving pictorial evidence (with the exception of four surreptitious photographs taken by Sonderkommandos) of the extermination process from inside the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi concentration camp…. The album has 56 pages and 193 photographs. …The images follow the processing of newly arrived Hungarian Jews from Carpatho-Ruthenia in the early summer of 1944. They document the disembarkation of the Jewish prisoners from the train boxcars, followed by the selection process, performed by doctors of the SS and wardens of the camp, which separated those who were considered fit for work from those who were to be sent to the gas chambers. The photographer followed groups of those selected for work, and those selected for death to a birch grove just outside the crematoria where they were made to wait before being killed. The photographer also documented the workings of an area called Canada, where the looted belongings of the prisoners were sorted before transport to Germany. The album's survival is remarkable, given the strenuous efforts made by the Nazis to keep the ‘Final Solution’ a secret. Also remarkable is the story of its discovery. Lili Jacob (later Lili Jacob-Zelmanovic Meier) was selected for work at Auschwitz-Birkenau while the other members of her family were sent to the gas chambers. The Auschwitz camp was evacuated by the Nazis as the Soviet army approached. Jacob passed through various camps, finally arriving at the Dora concentration camp, where she was eventually liberated. Recovering from illness in a vacated barracks of the SS, Jacob found the album in a cupboard beside her bed. Inside, she found pictures of herself, her relatives, and others from her community. The coincidence was astounding, given that the Nordhausen-Dora camp was over 640 km (400 mi) away, and that over 1, 100, 000 people were killed at Auschwitz…. Nazi-hunter Serge Klarsfeld visited Lili in 1980 and convinced her to donate the album to Yad Vashem. The album's contents were first published that year in the book The Auschwitz Album, edited by Klarsfeld” (Wikipedia, 2014).

" Ehri (2014) writes that “This is an eyewitness account by a Jewish survivor who escaped from a deportation train after departure from this transit camp.....The Belgian army barracks named Dossin de Saint-Georges, built in the town of Malines in 1756, were transformed into a Sammellager (Assembly Camp) on July 25, 1942. The first Jews who had received call-up orders arrived two days later, and the first train to Auschwitz left on August 4. This building was chosen for two reasons. It was right next to a railroad and Malines is located between Brussels and Antwerp, where 90% of the Jews in Belgium lived. After the roundups started, the Jews were taken by trucks to the inner square inside the barracks where armed SS were awaiting them. After being registered and stripped of their identity papers and last personal possessions, the prisoners had to wear a card around their neck with their number for the next deportation train. There were various categories of prisoners, the biggest of which were those marked for direct deportation. The barracks could house 1, 000 persons, but at times more than 1, 700 were crammed into them, with about 100 people on bunk beds in dormitories only about 21 to 7 meters wide. Later, they had to sleep on straw bags on the floor. The guard duty on the perimeter was done by Flemish SS members, supervised by German Security Police”.

While Grossman was never arrested by the Soviet authorities, his two major literary works (Life and Fate and Forever Flowing) were censored during the ensuing Nikita Khrushchev period as unacceptably anti-Soviet, and Grossman himself became in effect a nonperson. The KGB raided Grossman's flat after he had completed Life and Fate, seizing manuscripts, notes and even the ribbon from the typewriter on which the text had been written. Grossman was told by the Communist Party's chief ideologist Mikhail Suslov that the book could not be published for two or three hundred years” (Wikipedia 2015).

"Statement by Senator Pat McCarran of Nevada in the Senate of the United States, Friday, January 6, 1950…Not printed at government expense." McCarren here warns of the flood of anti-American aliens who are flooding into the US under the guise of Displaced Persons legislation. Towards the end of the DP period, “In June 1952, McCarran joined Francis Walter in instigating the passing of the McCarran–Walter Act, a bill that imposed more rigid restrictions on entry quotas to the United States. It also stiffened the existing law relating to the admission, exclusion and deportation of "dangerous" aliens as defined by the McCarran Internal Security Act. In response to the act he made a well known statement: ‘I believe that this nation is the last hope of Western civilization and if this oasis of the world shall be overrun, perverted, contaminated or estroyed, then the last flickering light of humanity will be extinguished….we have in the United States today hard-core, indigestible blocs which have not become integrated into the American way of life, but which, on the contrary are its deadly enemies….The solution of the problems of Europe and Asia will not come through a transplanting of those problems en masse to the United States.... if the enemies of this legislation succeed in riddling it to pieces, or in amending it beyond recognition, they will have contributed more to promote this nation's downfall than any other group since we achieved our independence as a nation.’” The present pamphlet ends with the warning that “The pressure groups are using a relatively few war-displaced persons, virtually all of whom are being resettled or repatriated, for the purpose of destroying our immigration barriers, to the end that this country will be inundated with a flood of aliens. With seemingly unlimited money these well-knit determined groups will succeed unless the patriotic American groups and the rand and file of the American people speak their minds firmly and promptly to the Congress.” SUBJECT(S): Political refugees.

In 2003, in the BBC's The Radio Detectives, Professor Jeffrey Richards described him as ‘the poor man's Sherlock Holmes’. Sexton Blake adventures appeared in a wide variety of British and international publications (in many languages) from 1893 to 1978, running to over 4, 000 stories by some 200 different authors. Blake was also the hero of numerous silent and sound films, radio serials, and a 1960s ITV television series…..Perhaps most famously, Blake starred in his own long-running title, The Sexton Blake Library, from 1915 to 1968 which was published in five ‘series’. Publication was constant at 2–4 issues per month until the end of series 4 in 1964…. The majority of Sexton Blake Library covers (prior to editor William Howard Baker's 1956 revamp of the character) were painted by master Sexton Blake illustrator Eric Parker. Writers who worked on Blake's appearances throughout this 53-year span included John Creasey, Jack Trevor Story and Michael Moorcock” (Wikipedia, 2015).

Original Paper Wrappers, 12mo, 23 pages. “In March, 1943, in the wake of the general disillusionment with the British government, a group headed by Eleanor Rathbone, a non-Jewish member of Parliament, formed the National Committee for Rescue from Nazi Terror. The group denounced the lack of change in government policy since the December declaration and urged public demonstrations against the British position. Rathbone became something of a bête noire for Foreign Office officials, who were aggravated by her ‘misguided, even if well-meaning illusions’ about the Jewish predicament in Europe. The Foreign Office referred to her as an ‘impatient idealist’ who was trying to monopolize the time of ministers who, in her view, were ‘too buys or too indifferent’ to deal with practical problems…. The National Committee’s momentum was soon lost, and by summer [1943] it had relapsed into a sense of ‘fatalism and despair, ’ in part because of the government’s delaying tactics and its constant warnings of the dangers of stimulating antisemitism at home…. The Public debate in Britain now focused on averting racial friction at home owing to the influx of Jewish refugees and shifted away from rescue efforts abroad. As the war turned in favor of the Allies, government officials gave their attention to securing the departure of refugees from Britain after the war, in effect abandoning wartime efforts to save the European Jews” (The Holocaust Encyclopedia, 2001, p 93).

A rally in Madison Square Garden on March 7, 1934, featured 23 speakers representing Protestant and Catholic churches, trade unions, political figures, and the American Legion. New York’s mayor Fiorello LaGuardia addressed the audience. Organizers called the rally ‘the case of civilization against Hitlerism’” (Waite in New York History Review Annual, 2013).

Abridged 'Quick Reader' of Hecht's novel Count Bruga, about a philandering mountebank appearing in caricature, in a special abridged edition for US servicemen. Count Bruga was originally published in 1926. Ben Hecht (1894–1964) was an American screenwriter, director, producer, playwright, journalist, and novelist; known as "the Shakespeare of Hollywood". He became an active Zionist shortly before the Holocaust began in Germany, and as a result wrote articles and plays about the plight of European Jews, such as We Will Never Die in 1943 and A Flag is Born in 1946. Of his seventy to ninety screenplays, he wrote many anonymously to avoid the British boycott of his work in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

  301. Moses, Siegfried. DIE JÜDISCHEN NACHKRIEGS-FORDERUNGEN [FIRST DEMAND FOR NAZI REPARATIONS TO THE JEWS]. [Tel Aviv]: Irgun Olej Merkaz Europa, 1944. 1st edition. Original paper wrappers, tall 12mo, 69 pages. 22 cm. In German. The first separate publication of a demand for Nazi reparations to the Jews. In July 1943, long before the war ended, Siegfried Moses coined the term “reparations” in relation to claims of Jewish citizens against the German state. He published an article on the restitution demands of Jews in the bulletin of the "Irgun Olej Merkaz Europa", Tel Aviv; they publish here those proposals as a separate work. For the first time, Moses proposed that a State can commit an injustice, for which it must then compensate the civilian population which suffered under that injustice. This legal opinion was later the basis for reparations by the Federal Republic of Germany. Siegfried Moses (1887-1974) was a German-Israeli lawyer and the first state comptroller Israel. After the Nazi seizure of power, he helped German Jews transfer assets to Palestine. From 1933 on he was also chairman of the Zionist Federation of Germany (ZVfD) and Vice President of the Reich Association of German Jews. In 1937 Moses himself fled to Palestine; then in 1941 he wrote (together with fellow German emigre Walter Schwarz) the text of the 1941 Palestinian Income Tax Act. In 1947 Moses was a member of the delegation of the Jewish Agency at the United Nations and in 1949, he became the first state comptroller Israel (Chief of Court). In 1956-1957, he was also President of the "Council of Jews from Germany", the official association of Israelis of German origin. In 1955 he co-founded the Leo Baeck Institute, serving as its director, and was on the advisory board of the United Restitution Organization in Israel (Wikipedia, 2015).

Willibrand, only a year after Toller's death, was the first comprehensive scholarly treatment of Toller. A condensation was published in 1945. Willibrand's was a pioneering work written long before any detailed bibliographical research had been carried out and at a time when much material was totally inaccessible. Partly perhaps because of the limited material available, Willibrand's thesis as published is very clear and uncluttered.

Wells was a prisoner in the Janowska concentration camp outside Lvov during World War II. He escaped from the camp in an uprising in 1943 and was hidden in the basement of the Kalwinski family on the outskirts of Lvov.

In this work Wells investigated the "non-response" of American Jewish leaders of theplight of Jews in Nazi Europe.

The hell-like reality of the Polish Jews, a hell-like reality which has already lasted more than 80o days, and where literally every minute, every second demands Jewish victims, without a stop, without any interruption, and the hand of the torturer and murderer, the robber and offender is still unwearied, --this reality is not to he described in words.

Günther. “Hans Friedrich Karl Günther (February 16, 1891 – September 25, 1968) was a German race researcher and eugenicist in the Weimar Republic and the Third Reich. He was also known as Race Günther (Rassengünther) or Race Pope (Rassenpapst). He is considered to have been a major influence on National Socialist racialist thought. He taught at the universities of Jena, Berlin, and Freiburg, writing numerous books and essays on racial theory. Günther's Short Ethnology of the German People (1929) was a popular exposition of Nordicism. In May 1930 he was appointed to a new chair of racial theory at Jena. He joined the Nazi Party in 1932 as the only leading racial theorist to join the party before it assumed power in 1933.” Vermeil was a Sorbonne professor, a scholar in German history, who tried, in vain, in the late 1930s, to warn the French intellectual and political elites of dangers of Nazi ideology. Following German occupation, his writings were seized and destroyed but were reissued in 1945. He saw Nazism as a kind of antiliberalism led by a "unlimited dynamism", using the "total mobilization" of wartime during peacetime in order to unify first the Germans, and then Europe, under its racist domination. He joined the resistance group “Montpellier” and later joined General de Gaulle in London. Once the war ended, he resumed his professorship at the Sorbonne. (Wikipedia, 2015). SUBJECT(S): Ethnology.

Sephiha was born in Brussels to a Sephardi family from Istanbul. During the German occupation of Belgium, he was arrested in 1943 and deported to Auschwitz in September. He survived the death camp, where his father perished. After liberation, he resumed his studies in natural sciences, graduating in 1948 and working as a chemical engineer; however, he eventually decided to study and defend the linguistic and cultural heritage of his community. His understanding of the language is based on a clear distinction between its two fundamental modalities. Sephiha, who retired in 1991, was instrumental in securing academic acceptance and public support for the “agonizing language” he spoke and taught. Besides his scientific and popular publications, from 1972 he launched several calls for revival of the language and in 1979 founded the “Association Vidas Largas for the Defense and Promotion of the Judeo-Spanish Language and Culture, ” which organizes educational work in Sephardi communities as well as the rescue of literary, musical, and architectural treasures. Judeo-Spanish has since been included among the recognized minority languages of France. In 2003, Sephiha inaugurated at the Auschwitz site a memorial in honor of the 160, 000 Judeo-Spanish victims of the Holocaust” (Wilke in EJ 2007). Ex-library with usual markings. Very Good condition.

Original Blue Paper Wrappers, 8vo. 205pp. Dov Ber Borochov (1881 –1917) was a “Marxist Zionist and one of the founders of the Labor Zionist movement as well as a pioneer in the study of Yiddish as a language…. As an adult he joined the Russian Social Democratic Labor Party but was expelled when he formed a Zionist Socialist Workers Union in Yekaterinoslav. Subsequently, he helped form the Poale Zion party and devoted his life to promoting the party in Russia, Europe, and America. When the Russian social democrats came to power, Borochov returned to Russia in March 1917 to lead the Poale Zion…. Borochov became highly influential in the Zionist movement because he explained nationalism in general, and Jewish Nationalism in particular in terms of Marxist class struggle and dialectical materialism. Borochov predicted, correctly, that nationalist forces would be more important in determining events than economic and class considerations, especially as concerned the Jews. Borochov argued that the class structure of European Jews resembled an inverted class pyramid where few Jews occupied the productive layers of society as workers. The Jews would migrate from country to country as they were forced out of their chosen professions by a ‘stychic process’ which would ultimately force migration to Palestine, where they would form a proletarian basis in order to carry out Marxist class struggle. A key part of Borochovian ideology was that the Arab and Jewish working classes had a common proletarian interest and would participate in the class struggle together once Jews had returned to Palestine” (Wikipedia 2015).

Their action followed adoption by the national plenary conference of the NCRAC earlier this month of a plan for reorganization of work in the community relations field. Both organizations had strenuously opposed the plan, adoption of which was inspired by the Maclver Report on Jewish community relations. Jacob Blaustein, president of the American Jewish Committee, and Frank Goldman, president of B’nai B’rith, made the formal statements announcing secession by their organizations from the eight-year-old agency. Mr. Blaustein declared that 'the fundamental basis for the American Jewish Committee’s withdrawal from the NCRAC is our rejection of a regulatory body with compulsory powers to which national agencies are subordinated. No central body,' he asserted, 'can presume to have a mandate to speak as the ‘official’ voice of American Jewry.'” It re-joined NCRAC in 1966. Important and scarce.
