  1. "THE CAMP" NR. 13/14: ALMANAC FOR 1941. Hutchinson Internment Camp, Isle Of Man., December 1940. Mimeographed [printed on a flat-bed duplicator] magazine, 36 pages, each page about 340 x 215 mm., loose, ring-binding holes. Comprising many essays and fourteen full-page illustrations and many smaller illustrations, all hand-colored in pencil and crayon, artists including the German Dadaist Kurt Schwitters ("Internee" by K. Schwitters), and Helmuth Weissenborn(“HW”) for the zodiac frontispiece, with typed prose pieces by the journalist and historian Heinrich Fraenkel and many others. Plus one laid in illustration of the same size and period, not listed in the one single copy to come up at auction, perhaps a unique addition. Many illustrations are signed in Pencil by the artist. This magazine, produced by German internees, most of whom were Jews or political refugees, includes work by a number of prominent figures, and is particularly remarkable for its inclusion of a work by the Dada artist Kurt Schwitters, who had fled to Britain from Norway in 1940. Other pieces include illustrations of the camp itself, cartoons, political allegories, an architectural article about the post-war reconstruction of seaside resorts, and accounts of cultural and religious activities in the camp - from the celebration of Chanuka ("...when we kindle our eight-branched Menora... We see the lights of our candle burning and reminding us that in the end the glory of the values we're fighting and hoping for will throw its light upon our world..."), to renditions of Viennese waltzes by the noted pianist Maryan Rawicz. One current exhibit of Kurt Schwitters’ work prominently features works of his showing his internment at the camp (http: //www.saylegallery.com/exhibitions), and many of the artists mentioned in the exhibit—such as Fred Uhlman, Erich Kahn, Hellmuth Weissenborn, Klaus E. Hinrichsen, Bruno Ahrends, Fritz Solomonski, —have original artwork in the Almanac. Kurt Schwitters, in particular, has received a great deal of attention in the last few years, culminating in a major exhibit at the Tate in London earlier this year. Our copy includes the original manila covers and tie made from ersatz materials, probably grasses growing in the camp. This copy belonged to Religious Zionist activist Ulli Hirsch, whose essay “Our Spirit, ” is prominent in the Almanac. Very Good Condition with edgewear to wrapper, as expected. Exceedingly rare and important. Checking OCLC, COPAC (for the UK), and other leads, we located only two complete copies of the Almanac (Manx National Library, London School of Econ); a primarily facsimile copy (with some original pages) exists at the Imperial War Museum. Light wear to covers, Very Good Condition. (r-1-2) (ID #34078) $6500.00.

Kollwitz (1867-1945), was not Jewish but was a lifelong anti-fascist and artist who focused mainly on the poor and downtrodden underclass of her time saying that she found beauty in the workman's hands and the care worn faces of the women who were often unable to adequately feed their children. She lived through both World Wars, losing first a son then a grandson to the World War I and World War II respectfully. Kollwitz became the first woman elected to the Prussian Academy of Art in Berlin. But because her work was critical of the Nazi regime, she became persona non grata, and she was expelled from the academy in 1933. Kollwitz believed that art should reflect social conditions in one's time. The Nazis blacklisted her, forbidding her work to be displayed, and banished her pieces to the cellar of the Crown Prince Palace. Subjects: Kollwitz, Käthe, 1867-1945.

Original illustrated Wrappers, 4to, 130 pp. with 116 ills. (40 col.). 30 x 25 cm. In German. Felix Nussbaum (11 December 1904 - 2 August 1944) was a German-Jewish surrealist painter. Nussbaum's artwork gives a rare glimpse into the essence of one individual among the victims of the Holocaust. Nussbaum was a lifelong student, beginning his formal studies in 1920 in Hamburg and Berlin, and continuing as long as the contemporary political situation allowed him. In his earlier works, Nussbaum was heavily influenced by Vincent van Gogh and Henri Rousseau and he eventually paid homage to Giorgio de Chirico and Carlo Carrà as well. Carl Hofer's expressionist painting influenced Felix's careful approach to color. In 1933, Nussbaum was studying under a scholarship in Rome at the Berlin Academy of the Arts when the Nazis gained control of Germany. Adolf Hitler sent his Minister of Propaganda to Rome in April to explain to the artist elites how a Nazi artist was to develop, which entailed promoting heroism and the Aryan race. Nussbaum realised at this point that, as a Jew, he could not remain at the academy. The next decade of Nussbaum's life was characterised by fear, which is reflected in his artwork. In 1934 he took Felka Platek, a painter whom he had met while studying in Berlin and would later marry during their exile in Brussels in 1937, to meet his parents in Switzerland. Felix's parents eventually grew homesick for Germany and, against his fierce objections, they returned. This was the last time Felix would see his mother and father - the source of his spiritual and financial support. Felix and Felka would spend the next ten years in exile, mostly in Belgium, a period of emotional and artistic isolation for him.After Nazi Germany attacked Belgium in 1940, Nussbaum was arrested by Belgian police as a "hostile alien" German, and was subsequently taken to the Saint-Cyprien camp in France. The desperate circumstances in the camp influenced his pictures of that time. He eventually signed a request to the French camp authorities to be returned to Germany. On the train ride from Saint Cyprien to Germany, he managed to escape and rendezvous with Felka in Brussels, and they began a life in hiding. Without residency papers, Nussbaum had no way of earning an income, but friends provided him with shelter and art supplies so that he could continue his craft. The darkness of the next four years of his life can be seen in the expression of his artwork from that period.1944 was the year in which the plans of Nazi Germany had the greatest impact on the Nussbaum family. Philipp and Rahel Nussbaum were killed atAuschwitz in February. In July, Nussbaum and his wife were found hiding in an attic by German armed forces. They were arrested, sent to the Mechelen transit camp and given the numbers XXVI/284 and XXVI/285. On August 2 they arrived at Auschwitz, and a week later Felix was murdered at the age of 39.

With 77 illustrations. “Focusing on an elite group of two dozen Soviet-Jewish photographers, including Arkady Shaykhet, Alexander Grinberg, Mark Markov-Grinberg, Evgenii Khaldei, Dmitrii Baltermants, and Max Alpert, Through Soviet Jewish Eyes presents a different picture. These artists participated in a social project they believed in and with which they were emotionally and intellectually invested-they were charged by the Stalinist state to tell the visual story of the unprecedented horror we now call the Holocaust. These wartime photographers were the first liberators to bear witness with cameras to Nazi atrocities, three years before Americans arrived at Buchenwald and Dachau. In this passionate work, David Shneer tells their stories and highlights their work through their very own images-he has amassed never-before-published photographs from families, collectors, and private archives. Through Soviet Jewish Eyes helps us understand why so many Jews flocked to Soviet photography; what their lives and work looked like during the rise of Stalinism, during and then after the war; and why Jews were the ones charged with documenting the Soviet experiment and then its near destruction at the hands of the Nazis. ” (Publishers Description).

Pamphlet published for circulation containing a statement of apology and retraction by Henry Ford addressed to Louis Marshall, one of the founders and President of the American Jewish Committee, with a response by Louis Marshall. This statement, from 1927, was delivered amidst the mounting controversy surrounding Henry Ford and his Michigan based newspaper, “The Dearborn Independent. ” During this time, after many condemnations and threats of boycotts of Ford’s business holdings from various Jewish and Civic leaders, Ford issued a series of apologies and denials regarding the antisemitic content of his newspaper and a widely circulated pamphlet titled “The International Jew. ” In this letter Ford writes, “Although both publications are my property, it goes without saying that in the multitude of my activities it has been impossible for me to devote personal attention to their management or to keep informed as to their contents. ” (pg. [2]) Although his apologies were well received at the time, later scholars have argued that Ford’s statements were based on self preservation and maintaining his business interests, with some charging that Ford neither authored or even personally signed such letters.

Captain Webber, who won fame in England when he raised a fighting corps in the service of Britain during the South African war. Captain Webber has received powerful help in his campaign, and over 40, 000 British Jews have pledged their support to his movement.

This offprint presented by the Editors of “Digest and Review”. “The ‘Jewish Problem’ has become violently acute in recent years. What is anti-Semitism? How does it start? Does it exist in the United States? Is it true that Jews control industry, business, public opinion? […] The Editors of ‘Fortune’ undertook to make such an impartial survey. Their conclusions, it is safe to say, were totally unexpected both by Jews and non-Jews. The results of this research, appearing originally in ‘Fortune, ’ were later published in book form by Random House. ” (Publisher’s Description) In reference to the original appearance of this article in ‘Fortune’ Isaac Goldberg writes, in his monograph “The So-Called ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion’” (See item Holo2-116-19), “It proves, once again beyond the slightest doubt, that the Jew despite this prominent person or the other, is not anything like the power in national affairs invented by the Protocol-terrorizers. ”(Goldberg, pg 24) Subjects: Jews – United States.

From 1918 to 1922, he was a professor at Reed College and at the University of Oregon. During this time, he was also a psychologist for the Portland Court of Domestic Relations. After he left Portland, from 1924 to 1926, Kohs was the executive director of the Jewish Welfare Federation in California's Alameda County. In 1925, he founded the Oakland Placement and Guidance Service. After he left the Jewish Welfare Federation in 1926, he served as the executive director for the Jewish Family Service Agency in San Francisco. Leaving there in 1928, he relocated to Brooklyn, New York, where he worked for the next five years at the Federation of Jewish Charities. In 1928, Kohs became the eastern representative on the Jewish Committee for Personal Service in the state institutions of California. In New York City, he also served as the chair of the Dept. Of Social Technology in New York University's Graduate School of Social Work. From 1938 to 1940, Kohs directed the Resettlement Division of the National Refugee Service (an organization now known as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society or H. I. A. S. ). From 1939 to 1941, he worked on the Refugee Service Committee in Los Angeles, Calif. After he left the Refugee Service Committee, he worked as the administrative field secretary of the Jewish Welfare Board's Western States Division. He was employed in this capacity until 1956. During part of this time, from 1942 to 1947, Kohs was the director of the Bureau of War Records, in New York City.

Address on the need for racial equality, the struggle against fascism, and the experience of a gunner in long range bombers in the second world war. Address delivered during the period of Kuroki's remisce from his wounds, and before he flew as a tailgunner in the Pacific theatre of war. An address by Sergeant Ben Kuroki, U. S. Army Air Force, Commonwealth Club, San Francisco, Calif., February 4, 1944 [reprinted by Japanese American league]. “Ben Kuroki joined the U. S. Army Air Corps shortly after the Japanese attacks on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Sergeant Kuroki was one of the few Nisei (second-generation Japanese American) admitted to the Corps. He earned two Distinguished Flying Crosses and was acclaimed as the first Nisei war hero after flying 30 missions in Europe as a tailgunner and top turret gunner aboard a B-24 plane. The government sent him on a tour to Heart Mountain and two other prison camps in an effort to promote U. S. Military recruitment. Not surprisingly, the U. S. Government faced increasing draft resistance among Nisei men who were incarcerated for no other reason than their ethnic Japanese heritage. Kuroki asked for duty in the Pacific and, after initial rejection, became the only Nisei to serve in active combat with the Air Corps in the Pacific theater, flying 28 more missions over Japan as a tailgunner on a B-29 plane. After the war, he became the first Japanese American editor of a general newspaper in Nebraska. He later edited newspapers in Michigan and Southern California. ” (Smithsonian Asian Pacific American center).

First edition. In Hebrew. Lyrics (romanized) --also printed as vocalized text in Hebrew script. Anthology of 230 zionist songs. Includes unacc. Melodies. Published by the Yudisher Ferlag of Berlin, under the auspices of Hechalutz and Maccabi World Union. “Jakob Schönberg was born in Fürth, Bavaria on September 8, 1900. His father, David Schönberg, was chazzan (cantor) at the Claus-synagoge in Fürth... Schönberg apparently earned his living during Germany's Weimar Republic (1919-1933) as a pianist, music critic, conductor and composer. He wrote articles for the Nürnberger Zeitung and served as a musical consultant for Bavarian Radio in Munich. Bavarian Radio performed some of his orchestral compositions. He also worked in films as a "musical conductor and illustrator" and some of his film music was published by Schott's Söhne, Mainz, and Hawkes and Son, London. Schönberg was interested in composing instrumental music — especially orchestral. His first orchestral work, Prelude Symphonique, premiered in 1923... His style of composition took a decidedly Jewish turn after the Nazis took power in 1933, and Jewish musicians could no longer be employed by Germany's state-supported cultural institutions. In 1934 Schönberg transcribed the folk songs and dance tunes of several halutzim (pioneers) visiting Germany from Palestine. The following year he published Shire Erets Yisrael (Songs of the Land of Israel), an anthology containing 230 Hebrew songs (Berlin: Jüdischer Verlag, 1935). From this time until, at least, when he left Germany, these Israeli melodies would figure prominently in Schönberg's work. He set several of them for voice with piano and voice with flute and viola. His Suite für Orchester, 3 Sätze utilizes a Horra melody from the anthology. Schönberg's orchestral Horras appear to have been extremely popular in Nazi Germany, and were performed numerous times by the Jüdischer Kulturbünde between 1936 and 1938, in both Berlin and Frankfurt-am-Main” (Jakob Schonberg Collection; JTSA).

S. R. [now Zhytomyr, Ukraine]—died July 3, 1951, Warsaw, Poland), Polish poet and short-story writer noted for his vigorous, desperate search for moral values that might withstand such realities as the horrors of the Nazi occupation. Born into a Polish family in the Ukraine, Borowski went to Poland and in 1932 settled in Warsaw. During World War II he started to write poetry, publishing in 1942 his clandestine collection Gdziekolwiek ziemia ('Wherever the Earth'). He was arrested and sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp in 1943 and then deported to the Dachau camp in Germany. Immediately after the war, together with Krystyn Olszewski and Janusz Nel Siedlecki, Borowski published in Munich, Germany, the recollections Bylismy w Oswiecimiu (1946; We Were in Auschwitz). After his return to Poland he published two collections of short stories, Pozegnanie z Maria (1948; 'Farewell to Maria') and Kamienny swiat (1948; 'The World of Stone'), that explored the depths of human degradation in the Nazi concentration camps. (Both collections appear in the English translation This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen, and Other Stories [1967]. ) ” - Encyclopedia Britannica.

  209. Dontsov, Dmytro. POETKA VOHNIANYKH MEZH: OLENA TELIHA = THE POETESS OF FIERY LIMITS: OLENA TELIHA. Toronto; Homin Ukrainy, 1953. Original Wrappers. 8vo. 95 pages. 22 cm. First Editon. About the life and poetry of Olena Teliha written by Dmytro Dontsov, a fellow member of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists. Olena Teliha was a Ukrainian Nationalist poet and leader. "From 1933 [Olena Teliha] contributed to the nationalist journal Vistnyk (Lviv). In Cracow from 1939 to 1941, she headed the literary-artistic society Zarevo and together with Oleh Olzhych worked in the cultural sector of the Leadership of Ukrainian Nationalists. With the outbreak of the war between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union she moved to Lviv and then left with the OUN expeditionary groups for Kyiv in 1941. There she became head of the Writers' Union and editor of the literary weekly Litavry (Kyiv). When the Nazi regime closed down Litavry's parent newspaper, "Ukrainske slovo" (1941), and replaced it with the pro-regime "Nove ukrainske slovoa", Teliha refused to co-operate. She was arrested by the Gestapo and shot, together with other Ukrainian nationalists." (Encyclopedia of Ukraine) In 2005, researcher Kateryna Kryvoruchko discovered previously unknown poetry written by Teliha. Included in the collection is “I Drained That Goblet Thousands of Times” believed to have been written as late as 1940, two years before Telihaâ€&tm;s death. €œâ€˜I Drained That Goblet Thousands Of Timesâ€&tm; is a symbolic poem written in response to the allegation that the poet led on the theoretician of Ukrainian nationalism, Dmytro Dontsov. "The newly discovered poem contains a response to Olenaâ€&tm;s ill-wishers: she and the unnamed man (most likely Dontsov) are friends, comrades in arms, and nothing more." (Tysiachna, The Long Return, 2005, day. Kiev. Ua) Dmytro Dontsov was a political journalist, editor, literary critic and theorist for the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists. After emigrating to Canada in the late 1940's, his strong opposition to Russia, and unending support of Ukrainian independence was still present in his writing and work in continued support of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists.

'Leon Bramson and the ORT Union. ' Published on the seventieth anniversary of the World Ort Union, in memory of Leon Bramson, founder of the ORT in France. A history of the French ORT, and the life and work of Leon Bramson (Leonty; 1869–1941), “communal worker and writer. Born in Kovno, Bramson graduated in law from Moscow University, then settled in St. Petersburg, where he practiced, and was active in the Society for the Promotion of Culture Among the Jews. He was also director of the central committee of the Jewish Colonization Association from 1899 to 1906. Under his direction a statistical study was carried out on the economic situation of the Jews in Russia (published in Russian in 1904 and in French in 1906–8). He was one of the compilers of the Sistematicheskiy ukazatel literatury o yevreyakh na russkom yazyke ('Systematic Guide to Russian Literature About Jews, ' 1892), and contributed many articles to Voskhod and other periodicals on problems of Jewish education, emigration, and colonization. Active in Jewish political life, Bramson was one of the founders of the 'Jewish Democratic Group. ' In 1906 he was elected to the First Duma as a deputy for Kovno province, joining the Labor faction ('Trudoviki'). During World War I, the Revolution, and the Civil War, Bramson was an organizer of the Central Committee for the Relief of Jewish War Sufferers (YEKOPO). When he left Russia in 1920, he continued to work in Western Europe on behalf of ORT (with which he had been associated in Russia from 1909), serving as its president from 1923 until his death. ” (EJ 2008). The author, Dr David Lvovitch (1882-1950) studied law and economics in St Petersburg and later studied engineering in Munich. An early Zionist from a wealthy family, he visited the USA, spending the First World War years there. He returned to Russia and was elected to the short-lived 1918 Constituent Assembly. An industrialist, he was interested in ORT's agricultural and co-operative projects. Elected as a founder member of the World ORT Union Council in 1921, he was central in developing ORT into a world organisation. Lvovitch travelled abroad with Leon Bramson to find financial support for needy Russian Jews after the First World War. He worked successfully in the USA, cultivating support among the Russian emigre community. On Bramson's death Lvovitch and Aaron Syngalowski, as co-chairmen of the ORT Executive, shared the running of World ORT throughout the Second World War and after. Lvovitch, based in Paris, was in charge of ORT's remarkable programmes assisting and retraining displaced persons in Europe. When he died, the ORT Lvovitch School in Netanya was named in his memory.

  276. Frank, Anne. ANNE FRANK: DIARY OF A YOUNG GIRL. West Hatfield, Mass.; Pennyroyal Press with Jewish Heritage Publishing, 1985. Full Morocco. Folio. [196] pages. 35 x 23 cm. Two volumes housed in linen slipcase. Het Achterhuis, the Diary of Anne Frank, with illustrations, deluxe letterpress printed edition. One of 350 numbered copies, signed by Joseph Goldyne and Barry Moser. Gray morocco by Ellenport of Boston, stamped in blind, with quarter gray morocco and linen matching chemise for the tissued plates, slipcased. 14 x 9 inches (35 x 23 cm); text volume unpaginated (with ten plates), the chemise with ten pencil signed plates. Goldyne's work comprises etching, aquatint and roulette. Anne Frank’s Diary, appearing first in Dutch as “HET ACHTERHUIS: DAGBOEKBRIEVEN 12 JUNI 1942-1 AUGUSTUS 1944” and later in English as “The Diary of a Young Girl,” is a work which continues to hold its place at the top of many literary lists: the most famous diary of modern times, the most famous work by a teenager, most famous work on the Holocaust, most famous 20th Century work by a Jew, etc…. Primo Levi suggested that Anne Frank is frequently identified as a single representative of the millions of people who suffered and died as she did because "One single Anne Frank moves us more than the countless others who suffered just as she did but whose faces have remained in the shadows. Perhaps it is better that way; if we were capable of taking in all the suffering of all those people, we would not be able to live." Otto Frank, Anne’s father spent the remainder of his life after publication of the Diary as custodian of his daughter's legacy, saying, "It's a strange role. In the normal family relationship, it is the child of the famous parent who has the honor and the burden of continuing the task. In my case the role is reversed." He recalled his publisher's explaining why he thought the diary has been so widely read, with the comment, "he said that the diary encompasses so many areas of life that each reader can find something that moves him personally." Simon Wiesenthal expressed a similar sentiment when he said that the diary had raised more widespread awareness of the Holocaust than had been achieved during the Nuremberg Trials, because "people identified with this child. This was the impact of the Holocaust, this was a family like my family, like your family and so you could understand this" (Wikipedia, 2012). This edition comprised a commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of the death of Anne Frank. This title has sold at auction in 2007, 2009, & 2011 for over USD 1550.

  280. Frank, Anne. HET ACHTERHUIS. DAGBOEKBRIEVEN 12 JUNI 1942 - 1 AUGUSTUS 1944. Uitgeverij Contact, Amsterdam, 1948. Original publisher’s boards, 12mo, ix 252 pages. First Edition, 3rd printing, of The Diary of a Young Girl, from the year after the first printing. This is a book which continues to hold its place at the top of many literary lists: the most famous diary of modern times, the most famous work by a teenager, most famous work on the Holocaust, most famous 20th Century work by a Jew. Primo Levi suggested that Anne Frank is frequently identified as a single representative of the millions of people who suffered and died as she did because "One single Anne Frank moves us more than the countless others who suffered just as she did but whose faces have remained in the shadows. Perhaps it is better that way; if we were capable of taking in all the suffering of all those people, we would not be able to live. " Otto Frank, Anne’s father spent the remainder of his life after publication of the Diary as custodian of his daughter's legacy, saying, "It's a strange role. In the normal family relationship, it is the child of the famous parent who has the honor and the burden of continuing the task. In my case the role is reversed. " He recalled his publisher's explaining why he thought the diary has been so widely read, with the comment, "he said that the diary encompasses so many areas of life that each reader can find something that moves him personally. " Simon Wiesenthal expressed a similar sentiment when he said that the diary had raised more widespread awareness of the Holocaust than had been achieved during the Nuremberg Trials, because "people identified with this child. This was the impact of the Holocaust, this was a family like my family, like your family and so you could understand this" (Wikipedia, 2012).

  282. Goldschmidt Wyman, Eva. ESCAPING HITLER: A JEWISH HAVEN IN CHILE. Tuscaloosa, University of Alabama Press, 2103. ISBN-13: 9780817318000. Cloth, 8vo, 232 pages. Eva Goldschmidt Wyman, tells her family's story, and that of thousand of others, who escaped from Nazi Germany to Chile in the 1930s and 1940s, a time when the Chilean Nazi party was active in Chile's major institutions. The book is based primarily on interviews with German Jewish refugees, family correspondence, and research in German and Chilean primary sources from the period. It begins with an intimate account of Jews in Germany in the 1930s as conditions for Jews deteriorated. Wyman recounts Kristallnacht in Stuttgart, where her father was principal of the Jewish school, his imprisonment in Dachau, and his release and immigration to Great Britain. Escaping Hitler details her family's escape from Nazi Germany and subsequent life in Chile, providing an intimate look at daily life on the steam ship Conte Grande during the voyage from Italy to Chile in 1939, as well as Nazi espionage and anti-Semitic activity in Chile and the Nazi influence in South America in general. Recounted in an intimate and personal style, Escaping Hitler immerses the reader in an extraordinary chapter of contemporary Jewish history both inside Germany and South America. It is an augmented translation of her earlier work in Spanish, Huyendo del Infierno Nazi: La Inmigración Judio-Alemana hacia Chile en los Años Treinta (Santiago, RIL, 2008). "Escaping Hitler brings new material to the English speaking audience and as such is a contribution to Holocaust history. It is a fascinating and informative read presenting a well-researched and well-documented story of German Jewish refugees in Chile and their complicated encounters with German and Nazi immigrants."-Steven B.

The earlier centers of Jewish learning and Jewish culture in Europe have been destroyed, and the few people who are still free to create have the duty to give the undying spirit of Judaism a new legitimacy....

New York; American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, 1935. Original paper wrappers. [4] pages. 28 cm. Published November 25, 1935. The Summary report begins as follows: “The tragic story of the Jews of Germany since the advent of the Nazi regime requires no elaboration here. This memorandum limits itself to the steps taken in the United States and abroad to bring aid to the Jews of Germany and to continue to help the Jews in Eastern Europe. When the Nazi Government came into power, the Joint Distribution Committee, in the Spring of 1933, conferred with the outstanding leaders of the German Jews. There was set up in Germany a Jewish Central Committee of Relief and Reconstruction. This coordinates the activities of the various societies and bureaus that have to do with emigration and repatriation service, providing special schools for Jewish children, retraining older people for different occupations, extending loans, economic aid and employment service, and making some contribution to the work of local Jewish welfare and charitable societies. ” The remainder of the piece describes the ceaseless persecution and deteriorating situation of the German Jews, outlines the statistics of aid for the communities in Germany and those in exile, and points to the overwhelming need expressed by the German Jewish community for asylum and refuge anywhere in the world.

Kitsur Shulhan Arukh (Code of Jewish Law), printed in Basle, Switzerland, ostensibly for Jewish refugees there. The Kitsur Shulhan Arukh by Solomon ben Joseph Ganzfried (1804–1886), Hungarian rabbi and author. “His most famous work is the Kitsur [Abridged] Shulhan ‘arukh (1864), a text that summarizes, in simple, straightforward language, the main practical religious commandments to be observed in everyday life. Ganzfried states in his introduction that his primary sources, in addition to Yosef Karo’s Shulhan ‘arukh itself, were the halakhic works of the rabbis Ya‘akov Lorbeerbaum of Lissa (Leszno), Shneur Zalman of Liady, and Avraham Danzig, and whenever their opinions divided, he concurred with the majority ruling. The Kitsur Shulhan ‘arukh was very popular during Ganzfried’s lifetime; indeed, it was one of the most widely accepted halakhic books for the religious public. Dozens of editions were printed, and the book was translated more than once into English, Yiddish, French, German, and Hungarian. Various commentaries on the Kitsur were written as well—although Ganzfried had opposed this, as he wished to retain the concise format of his original version. ” - YIVO Encyclopedia.

In both Haye adam and Hokhmat adam, Danzig usually presents only the final halakhic ruling on an issue, though at times he places a dispute before the reader and decides between the two opinions. He often relies on the commentators to the Shulchan ‘arukh—including the Gaon of Vilna, whom Danzig admired and to whom he was related by marriage—but he does not hesitate to rule against them.

Under Soviet rule, during 1940 to 1941, the organization operated on the basis of underground cells and never had more than one hundred members. One of its main activities was the publication of a Hebrew Magazine, Nizoz (spark) which eventually became a monthly and also of other publications such as Shalhevet and the almanac of the Ma'apilim battalion. In the three years of its existence in the ghetto IBZ was headed, at various times, by Yitzhak Shapira, Avraham Melamed, and Aryeh Cohen. Many IBZ members met their death during liquidation of the ghetto, July 1944, in previously prepared hideouts.

Like other members of MARS he was attacked and arrested for his 'unpolitical' literary works, but managed to save himself from execution by feigning insanity.

During the Second World War he fled to Western Ukraine, then to displaced persons camps in Germany, and finally to the United States.

In Hebrew and German in parallel columns (with diacritic vowel marks under the Hebrew, and with Yiddish translation between Hebrew). Original 1938 title page, with verso 1944 German title page: “Den jüdischen Flüchtlingen in der Schweiz; Zur Feier des [Pesakh]-Festes im Jahre 5704; überreicht vom Schweizerischen Israelitischen Gemeindebund.” (For the Jewish Refugees in Switzerland; For the celebration of Pesakh in the year 5704; presented by the Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities). Copyright by Lehrberger & Co. of Frankfurt. A European-published hagada from the darkest period of the Holocaust, produced specifically for those feeling the inferno. During 1943 and 1944, the extermination camps were working at a furious rate to kill the hundreds of thousands of people shipped to them by rail from almost every country within the German sphere of influence, and by the spring of 1944, up to 8,000 people were being gassed every day at Auschwitz (USHMM, 2012). Passover 1944 began on April 8, the day that the roundups of the Jews of Carpatho-Ruthenia and northern Hungary started. On April 14, the last day of the Holiday, László Endre & László Baky (German-installed heads of the Ministry of the Interior) and Eichmann made the official decision to deport all the Jews of Hungary. With ten illustrations; an early 19th century German Orthodox Haggadah originally compiled by Wolf Heidenheim in 1822. Published for German-Jewish refugees in Switzerland under the auspices of the Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities, founded in 1904 to help protect the general interest of Jews in Switzerland; during the second world war, the Federation helped support the refugee community in Switzerland: “Prior to and during the Second World War, Switzerland gave refuge to about 23,000 Jewish refugees although the government decided that Switzerland would serve only as a country of transit. These Jews were protected during the Holocaust due to Swiss neutrality. The Jewish refugees, however, did not receive the financial support from the government that non-Jewish refugees received. Many more Jews were prevented from entering, effectively shutting the border.“ (Jewish Virtual Library; Switzerland).

  400. Touster, Saul; Yosef Dov Sheinson. A SURVIVORS' HAGGADAH. Philadelphia Jewish Publication Society, 2000. 270x210 mm. XXXII+91 pages. Hardcover with dust jacket. This Haggadah is described by the original author as a "musaf" (supplementary material), rather than as a Haggadah. An absolutely wonderful piece of literature. Includes a very informative (30+ page) introduction about the post-Holocaust situation of the surviving Jews. Also full of wonderful poetry and artwork, created by victims both during and after the Holocaust. Can be used for supplementary material; It contains a great amount of new material relevant to the Holocaust that is not present in traditional haggadot. It also contains modified versions of several recognizable parts of the traditional Haggadah text, but the meaning of the modified version is usually quite different from that of the traditional text. For example, the answer offered for why we eat bitter herbs is: "Because we were intoxicated by the incense of Diaspora... Because we did little to help ourselves and reestablish our destroyed homes and country. " The message of this Haggadah's version of the four sons is not the telling of the story of Passover, but the insistence on the right to a homeland. Some blessings that are addressed to God in the traditional Haggadah are addressed to the Allied Forces in the Survivors' Haggadah. "Dayenu" is presented as a list of atrocities that God allowed to be carried out against the Jews, rather than a list of things we thank God for.

First edition. In German. Volume 18 of Hefte von Auschwitz. This issue (entirely in German) comprises articles on: first Poles in the Auschwitz camp, women’s escapes, sub-camps in Czechowice and Brno as well as the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp in the Nuremberg Trials. In her article Irena Strzelecka describes the first months of the camp as well as transports, e. G. From Tarnów, Wisnicz and Sosonowiec. The article includes the lists of two first transports from Tarnów (June 14, 1940) and Wisnicz (June 20, 2009) as well as transports from Silesia (June-July 1940). Tadeusz Iwaszko in his article about women’s escapees presents circumstances and methods of escapes from the camp. The author focuses on escapes from the penal company in Budy and escapes during the evacuation of the camp in January 1945. An article of Irena Strzelecka and Tadeusz Szymanski concerns the origins of two sub-camps of Auschwitz in Czechowice. The sub-camps were established in 1944 after the Allies had bombed a number of German industrial structures in Czechowice, including the refinery. The sub-camp in Brno, that is described by Emeryka Iwaszko in her article, was the most distant in the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp complex. Probably, since the second half of 1943 prisoners of Auschwitz were constructing the Technical Academy of the SS and Police in Brno where later Germans conducted experiments with arms. Andrzej Pankowski describes the Nuremberg Trials against the Nazi major war criminals who were involved in crimes committed in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and death camp. The author focuses not only on history, investigation and prosecution of the Nazi war criminals or legal issues but also attempts to analyze ethical attitudes and motivation of individuals who decided about the future of millions of deportees.

XXIV, 256 pages. 24 cm. First edition. With various essays on the history of the Jews in Munich; essays on Buber and on Herzl; includes the author's autobiographical essay 'In the Dachau Concentration Camp. ' “Cahnman's examination of 'the Jewish people that dwells among the nations' is focused on Germany because it was the country 'where in modern times the symbiosis. Has been most intimate and it also has been the country where the conflict degenerated into the monstrosity of the Holocaust. ' This representative anthology of his essays shares a common theme, although the examples differ in thought, method and style. Whether he explores the stratification of pre-Emancipation German Jewry, the rise of the Jewish national movement in Austria, or such an esoteric topic as the influence of the kabbalistic tradition on German idealist philosophy; whether he muses on the writing of Jewish history or reports on his firsthand experience in Dachau, Cahnman's work reflects central concerns of his personal and scholarly existence as a German Jew. Because he usually combined extensive empirical data with his own background and personal experience, he is able to craft a penetrating analysis of the recent history of Jewish life in Central Europe. Werner Cahnman believed that the 'writing of history is vital for the continued cultural identity of the human kind. '” - Publishers Description. Subjects: Jews - Germany - History.

Hardback. 8vo. VIII, 196 pages. 24 cm. First edition. Muslims in Global Societies Series, Vol. 5. “The way people think about the Holocaust is changing. The particular nature of the transformation depends on people’s historical perspectives and how they position themselves and their nation or community vis-à-vis the tragedy. Understandably, European Muslims perceive the Holocaust as less central to their history than do other Europeans. Yet while the acknowledgement and commemoration of the horrors of the Holocaust are increasingly important in Europe, Holocaust denial and biased views on the Holocaust are widespread in European Muslims’ countries of origin. In this book, a number of distinguished scholars and educators of various backgrounds discuss views of the Holocaust. Problematic views are often influenced by a persistent attitude of Holocaust denial which is derived, in part, from discourses in the Muslim communities in their countries of origin. The essays collected here explore the backgrounds of these perceptions and highlight positive approaches and developments. Many of the contributions were written by people working in the field and reflecting on their experiences. This collection also reveals that problematic views of the Holocaust are not limited to Muslim communities. ” Publishers Description.

Volume 1 of the New History of Russia Series. “The Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee was an organization created by the Soviet authorities as a tool of Soviet war propaganda. However, the committee gradually assumed a Jewish identity and served as a focus for Jewish problems and concerns. Soviet Government, Party and Security began to view the committee with suspicion. Increasing conservatism and anti-Jewish policy rendered the existence of this "Jewish" organization precarious. War, Holocaust and Stalinism presents a documented history of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee in the Soviet Union during the Second World War, the Holocaust and the immediate post-war years to the end of 1948. It centers upon the tragic fate of Soviet Jewry under both Hitler and Stalin during this most significant period in Jewish history. This is the first publication of documents from the newly opening Russian archives, primarily from the Russian State Archive and the former Archive of the Communist Party. Using previously unpublished material, this volume offers a new insight into Soviet and Stalinist policies towards Jews and the JAFC and the decision making processes involved. ” (Publisher’s Description.
