  1. (Toulouse Internment Camp) Bindiger, Joshua. MACHZOR LE’ROSH HASHANAH VE’YOM KIPPUR, SHENATH 5702 [PRAYER BOOK FOR NEW YEAR AND DAY OF ATONEMENT, 1941]. Toulouse, No Publisher (The Author), 1941. 1st edition. Mimeograph sheets. Loose as issued. Folio, 10 pages (complete). Square Hebrew letters with nikud (vowel points). The colophon reads in Hebrew: “Joshua Bindiger, Toulouse. ” In French was added, “Rue Belle Paule 11”. Soon after the outbreak of the Second World War, foreign-born Jews, especially recent refugees from Germany and Austria, were summarily arrested and interned by the French government in bleak detention camps in South-Western France. Suffering under severe conditions and quite cut off from the outside world, some enterprising inmates of the camps succeeded in clandestinely producing - from memory- this mimeograph edition of the Festival liturgy. A more well-known example of this genre is the Gurs Haggadah (see B. Gutterman, The Gurs Haggadah: Passover in Perdition, 2003). The present High Holiday Prayer Book was handwritten by Joshua Bindiger and then mimeographed. Yerushalmi provides in facsimile the final page of the more common Hagadah, written by the same individual and issued under the aegis of “S. R. Kapel, Rabbin de Mulhouse, Aumonier des Camps, Toulouse” [Yerushalmi, Haggadah, plate 162]. Exceedingly rare. Searching OCLC/Worldcat, British OPAC, The French National Library, and the library catalogs of the Wiener Library, the Imperial War Museum, the Bibliotheque du Toulouse, and others, we could locate not a single copy of this prayerbook in any library or archive anywhere. According to our research, it has been offered for sale only once at auction or in the trade in the past 70 years. Slight edgewear, otherwise Very Good Condition.

  3. (Isle of Man Internment Camp) Edited by The Liberal Jewish Congregation Of The Central Promenade Camp, Douglas I. O. M. [Isle Of Man]. SIDUR HA-TEFILOT. HELEK 1: ROSH HA-SHANAH. HELEK 2: YOM HA-KIPURIM [PRAYER BOOK FOR NEW YEAR AND DAY OF ATONEMENT, 1940]. Douglas I. O. M. [Isle Of Man], No Publisher [The Liberal Jewish Congregation Of The Central Promenade Camp], 1940. 1st edition. Later stiff binder with original covers bound in, 4to (legal size), 34 pages. Original mimeograph High Holidays prayerbook for German and Austrian Jewish refugees interned at the Central Promenade Camp on the Isle of Man. Searching OCLC/Worldcat, British OPAC, and the library catalogs of the Wiener Library, the Imperial War Museum, the Manx National Heritage Library, and others, we could locate not a single surviving copy of this prayerbook. A reference to the prayerbook, however, is made in the memoirs of former internee Gerald Friedman ( "As Britain went to war in September 1939, there were around 80,000 potential 'enemy aliens' in the country, that is, Germans and Austrians who might conceivably support Germany as spies. 55,000 of these were refugees from Nazi Germany and most of them were Jewish…. First came the May 12th order to intern temporarily all German and Austrian males over sixteen and under sixty years old who were in the coastal regions of England and Scotland. A second order on May 16 ordered the internment of all category "B" people - male and female - throughout the United Kingdom. And then, following the surrender of France to German forces on June 2, 1940, the British government interned most remaining adult males of enemy nationality from ages 16-70. Approximately 27,000 people were interned: among them were German and Austrian artists, doctors, scientists, open opponents of the Nazi regime and even those who had lived in Britain since they were infants. Eighty percent of the refugees in England were Jewish…. Early in July [1940]...a steamer took …internees to the Isle of Man…At the Isle of Man the internees realized they would no longer to be treated as civilians but instead as prisoners of war." ( 2014). By the end of 1940 the numner of "enemy aliens" on the Isle of Man had reached 14,000. Original owner's name and "House" nr penciled on original cover, with later typed explanation tipped in inside later binding. Perhaps a unique surviving example of this important prayerbooks for internees as they considered their fate for the coming Jewish year. Light wear, Very Good Condition.

Robbery of the last means of subsistence, starvation, physical ill-treatment, seclusion in overcrowded ghettoes, suppression of all cultural life, concentration camps, slave labour, massacre, and the Lublin reserve destined to become the grave of its compulsory inhabitants – this is the lot of Jewry under Nazi rule. ” - pg 3.

  17. Frank, Anne (1st Edition, 1st Printing Of The Anne Frank Diary). HET ACHTERHUIS. DAGBOEKBRIEVEN 12 JUNI 1942 - 1 AUGUSTUS 1944. Uitgeverij Contact, Amsterdam, 1947. . Original publisher’s boards, with the exceedingly rare dust jacket, 12mo, ix 252 pages. First Edition of The Diary of a Young Girl, 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). Very Good Condition in a worn but attractive dust jacket from the second printing, also from 1947. 1st edition dust jackets are essentially never seen (we have seen one offered for sale in the last 20 years); jackets from the 2nd printing (also 1947), which this is, are also extremely rare. An attractive copy of this monumental and rare work, much nicer than usually seen. (kh-2-4) (ID #34767) $7500.00.

Translated into English by Catharine Bland Williams. About the writer’s experiences in the Nazi concentration camp of Sachsenhausen. “Leon Szalet was born on April 9th 1892 in Zelechow (Poland). As a boy he moved with his parents to Warsaw where he attended and finished school and later set himself up in business. In 1921 he moved to Berlin and became active in the real estate business. With his friend Georg Breslauer, an architect, he developed a design for prefabricated houses made of steel in 1926. They applied for patents, which were granted in several important industrial countries. Model houses based on this design were shown at the Olympia building exhibition (with the cooperation of the British Steelwork Association) in London in 1936. The outbreak of the war interrupted the work. On September 13, 1939 Leon Szalet was taken prisoner by the Gestapo and sent to the concentration camp Sachsenhausen. On May 7th 1940 he was released and escaped to the Far East via Italy on the SS Conte Verde (the last ship to leave for Asia before the outbreak of the war). He came to Shanghai and remained there until October 1941 when he was granted an immigration visa to the United States. He entered the US on October 23, 1941 in San Francisco. In the US, Leon Szalet tried to renew his contacts in order to reestablish his business. He demanded reparations for the loss of properties in Berlin and was able to reclaim a building. In 1957 he travelled through Europe (Austria, France, Britain, Germany). Health problems forced him to stay in sanatoriums in Austria and England. Leon Szalet died in Berlin on March 2, 1958. Leon Szalet had a daugther, Gitla-Matla Szalet (Madeleine Lejwa-Chalette), who was born in Paris in 1914, while here parents were visiting there. In 1947, she married Arthur Lejwa, a Polish biochemist. The couple opened a gallery in Manhattan and became successful art dealers in the 1950s. Following her husband's death in 1972, Gitla-Matla Szalet closed the Galerie Chalette, but continued working as an art consultant to collectors and museums. She died in 1996. In 1946, Leon Szalet donated regulations of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp and a map of all concentration camps in Germany to the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. ” (Natl.

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. This first edition 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).

The pictures published for the first time are accompanied by fragments of authentic letters or conversations showing their origin.

He was also the first witness to draw plans and cross-sections to explain how the crematoria worked…..David Olère (1902 - 1985) was a Polish-born French painter and sculptor best known for his explicit drawings and paintings based on his experiences as a Jewish Sonderkommando inmate at Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II…. On February 20, 1943, Olère was arrested by French police during a round up of Jews in Seine-et-Oise and placed in Drancy internment camp. On March 2, 1943, he was one of approximately 1, 000 Jews deported from Drancy to Auschwitz. From this transport, Olere was one of 119 people selected for work; the rest were gassed shortly after arrival. He was registered as prisoner 106144 and assigned to the Sonderkommando at Birkenau, the unit of prisoners forced to empty gas chambers and burn the bodies, firstly working in Bunker 2 and later in Crematorium III. In addition to these duties, he was also forced to work as an illustrator, writing and decorating letters for the SS…. Olère began to draw at Auschwitz during the last days of the camp, when the SS became less attentive….. Olère felt compelled to capture Auschwitz artistically to illustrate the fate of all those that did not survive. He sometimes depicts himself in his paintings as a ghostly witnessing face in the background. He exhibited his work at the State Museum of Les Invalides and the Grand Palais in Paris, at the Jewish Museum in New York City, at the Berkeley Museum, and in Chicago. He retired from being an artist in 1962, and died in 1985.” (Wikipedia 2014) Very Good+ Condition. An outstanding copy of a very important book, seldom seen for sale.

The author was for a short time a forced inmate himself, which gives him a special claim to touch the subject.

Despite overwhelmingly superior forces, the Germans were repulsed from the ghetto, after suffering heavy losses…Armed resistance lasted until June 1943. With the help of the Polish "People's Guard" some 50 ghetto fighters escaped from the ghetto and continued to fight the Germans in the nearby forests as a partisan unit named in memory of Anielewicz. The Warsaw ghetto uprising had an enormous moral effect upon Jews and non-Jews throughout the world, especially since it was prepared and carried out under conditions which practically excluded a priori any attempt at armed resistance. Despite the vastly unequal forces, the uprising continued for a long time and constituted the largest battle in occupied Europe before April 1943 (excepting in Yugoslavia). This battle also had its impact upon the Polish population, resulting in the intensification of resistance by the Poles as well as by Jews throughout the country” (EJ, 2007).

In addition to classes in citizenship, English, commerce, domestic science, Jewish culture, literature, art, physical culture, drama, and music, it offered Jewish people a diverse range of experiences in Jewish American life, through programs in adult education, along with a library, a Jewish museum, and a summer camp for girls. Philip L. Seman, director from 1913 to 1945, described the institute as 'frankly Jewish and staunchly American. ' The institute changed its name to the Jewish People's Institute in 1922 and operated from a new building in North Lawndale after 1926. A forerunner of today's Jewish Community Centers, the Jewish People's Institute served as a major community center for Chicago Jewry and gained national recognition with its successful programs in education and religion, along with vocational and recreational activities. ” - Linda Borish, Encyclopedia of Chicago.

Trifold Brochure. 6 pages. 16 cm. Pamphlet by the esteemed scholar Ludwig Lewisohn calls for the demonstration of financial solidarity through a popular front of all Jewish Americans to help the oppressed communities of Germany, Eastern Europe, and those struggling to make a new home in Palestine. The author makes clear that money is not enough, and that other types of activity are necessary to guarantee the survival of European Jewry. Owing to the persecution and suffering in Europe, the World Zionist Organization in 1936 declared the need for “A Shekel of Defense and Offense" and created the U.S. Central Shekel Board; hence this pamphlet may have been published in 1936 or 1937; if one compares the subject matter in this pamphlet, one finds that it closely resembles, in a condensed form, the outline of the essay “Jews In Trouble” which Lewisohn published in the January 1936 issue of the Atlantic Magazine. Lewisohn (1882 –1955) was an “outspoken critic of American Jewish assimilation, [and a] novelist and translator, known for his novel The Island Within. He wrote several autobiographies, translated German literature and wrote the preface to the first English language edition of Otto Rank's seminal work Art and Artist. He also authored several works on Judaica and Zionism….Though his mother was the daughter of a rabbi, the family converted to Christianity. In his youth, Lewisohn was an active Methodist. After graduating with honors from the College of Charleston, he went to Columbia University in 1902 to work on a doctorate. He received the degree of A.M. in 1903. In 1904 he was told by his advisers that a Jew would never be hired to teach English literature at an American university. The bitter irony in this advice led Lewisohn to return to Judaism and he became an outspoken critic of American Jewish assimilation. In 1948 Lewisohn was among the founding faculty members of Brandeis University, where he taught until his death” (Wikipedia 2012)Subjects: American Jewish Community-Zionism-Popular Front.

A contemporary news report described the withdrawal as such: “The withdrawal of the American Jewish Committee from the American Jewish Conference was announced here last night following a full-day session of its executive committee attended by seventy-five leading representatives of Jewish communities throughout the country. The session was presided over by Jacob Blaustein, chairman of the General Committee. Protesting this decision, three Zionist members of the American Jewish Committee resigned and telegraphed other members urging them to do likewise. … A statement on the position of the American Jewish Committee, presented by its president Joseph M. Proskauer, declared that 'the present demand for the eventual establishment of a Jewish Commonwealth in Palestine, made by the American Jewish Conference, and constituting one of its major decisions, as well as the subordination of other Jewish issues to the problem of the political structure of Palestine, are in such essential disagreement with the fundamental views of the American Jewish Committee that in the best interests of Jews in this and other countries, including Palestine, the Committee feels impelled to withdraw from the American Jewish Conference. ' The statement reaffirms the desire of the American Jewish Committee 'to utilize for the Jews of Europe the broadest opportunities which Palestine can offer. ' It assures that the Committee 'will apply its most diligent efforts to bring about the abrogation of the White Paper which closes the doors of Palestine to further Jewish immigration and restricts Jewish land purchase. ' At the same time it expresses the conviction that the problems of world Jewry cannot be solved by a single political panacea and that 'the salvation and rehabilitation of the stricken Jews of Europe cannot be achieved through Palestine alone and certainly not through overemphasis on the political constitution of Palestine. It can be achieved only by considering Palestine a part of the larger program which looks to the rehabilitation and resettlement of Jews throughout the world and the restoration of their equal rights. ” - JTA October 26, 1943.

[New York City; American Jewish Congress], 1939. Stapled. [4] leaves. 38 cm. Single sided typed transcription of the speech Alfred M. Landon gave by radio to a mass meeting in Madison Square Garden. “Thousands of persons gathered tonight in the Madison Square Garden, in a rally under the auspices of the American Jewish Congress, Jewish Labor Committee and several cooperating organizations, to hear Christian and Jewish leaders condemn Nazi terrorism in Poland and elsewhere and to adopt resolution protesting against the Lublin Jewish ‘reservation’ and other aspects of Reich persecution. The audience cheered speeches and resolutions which branded Germany as an enemy of civilization, warned that Nazi oppression threatened not alone the Jews but Christians and all of mankind, and called for renewed efforts to safeguard democracy and equal rights in this country.” ("Nazi Terrorism, Reds Assailed at Mass Rally of All Faiths Here." Jewish Telegraphic Agency 14 Dec 1939.) “The American Jewish Congress and Jewish Labor Committee planned today to send a delegation to Washington in the near future to present to the Government a resolution adopted at last night's mass meeting of 20,000 persons in the Madison Square Garden appealing to President Roosevelt to express to the German Government ‘America's abhorrence and condemnation’ of oppression in Poland. The resolution was adopted after the capacity audience--it was announced that 8,000 had been turned away--had heard Herbert Hoover, Alfred M. Landon, Mayor LaGuardia, William Green, Dr. Stephen S. Wise and others denounce anti-Jewish ‘bestialities’ in Poland. An impressive part of the program was the chanting of ‘El Mole Rachamim’ by a chorus of the Jewish Cantors-Ministers Association. Thousands in the audience, on the platform and even in the press section shed tears during the memorial prayer for the victims of the occupation of Poland. Hoover, who arrived unexpectedly, coming by airplane from Chicago, read a message which he had sent previously (JTA NEWS DEC. 14), in which he denounced ‘the bestialities visited upon the people of the Jewish faith.’ Mayor LaGuardia, who had come in by plane with Hoover, denounced ‘those who are responsible for the outrages and the cruelties which are being inflicted upon hundreds of thousands of innocent people,’ and the ‘new cruelty of exploited, occupied lands that were taken contrary to all rules of civilization.’ He declared ‘there is being crystallized throughout the country today, throughout the world, a public opinion that will be visited upon the culprits not only in their day but for centuries to come.’ Landon, speaking by radio from Topeka, said that ‘this evening you are expressing the conscience of America, a conscience that refuses to be silent in the midst of persecution.’ He declared: ‘The time will come when the plain, average people of Germany will want to return to the amenities of international life. Decent treatment of all minority civilian groups will have a profound effect on our future respect for and appreciation of the German people.’ ("Roosevelt to Get Rally’s Resolution Asking Action on Nazi Oppression."

THE YELLOW SPOT: THE OUTLAWING OF HALF A MILLION HUMAN BEINGS: A COLLECTION OF FACTS AND DOCUMENTS RELATING TO THREE YEARS' PERSECUTION OF GERMAN JEWS, DERIVED CHIEFLY FROM NATIONAL SOCIALIST SOURCES, VERY CAREFULLY ASSEMBLED BY A GROUP OF INVESTIGATORS. New York; Knight, 1936. Original Cloth. 8vo. 287, [24] pages. 23 cm. First American edition in the scarce dust jacket. Full title: The yellow spot: the outlawing of half a million human beings: a collection of facts and documents relating to three years' persecution of German Jews, derived chiefly from National Socialist sources, very carefully assembled by a group of investigators. With an introduction by the Bishop of Durham. Captivating work on the persecution of the Jews in Nazi Germany, published a year after the Nuremberg Race Laws were introduced. "I cannot believe that the hysterical nationalism which has swept over Germany, violating fundamental principles of civilised human intercourse, and openly menacing the peace of the world, will continue much longer. It is certain that Germany contains a vast multitude of citizens who secretly abhor the barbarities which they are compelled to witness, and in some sense to inflict. We are assured that the Nazi regime is maintained by the Young, and regarded with dismay and dislike by the Old. Certainly it possesses the well-known characteristics of Youth - precipitate and ruthless logic, fierce intolerance, contempt for the lessons of experience, recklessly thorough-going methods. But, even so, there is ground for hope. Youth is generous, quick to learn, quick to unlearn, frank in its repentance, eager to make amends for its wrong-doing. As one who has rather special reasons for holding Germany in high regard, who has an unfeigned admiration for her intellectual achievements, who has often in the past visited with delight her historic cities, and recalled the wonders of her history, I cannot bring myself to believe that the persecution of minorities, and among them specially of the Jews, which now stains the national name, can be more than a passing aberration. The publication of this book will, I think, hasten the return of sanity by making yet more vocal and insistent the protest of the civilised conscience itself, that protest which not even the most passionate nationalism can permanently resist or will finally resent. " (Herbert Dunlem, Auckland Castle, February 12th, 1936). Dunlem's passage in the foreword reflects the 'optimism' and ignorance of foreigners and Germans in regards to Hitler's policies against the Jews. The "passing aberration" lead to the gas chambers and ended with the death of of over 6 million European Jews. Illustrated with b/w reproductions of photographs and few photographic reproductions of pages from Julius Streicher's infamous "Der Stürmer.

  309. Levin, Meyer; Ann Neumann. KIBBUTZ BUCHENWALD: SELECTIONS FROM THE KIBBUTZ DIARY. Tel-Aviv; Published By Lion The Printer For The Zionist Organization Youth Dept, 1946. 1st English language edition. Paperback. 16mo. 120 pages. 16 cm. In the series Palestine Pioneer Library number 9. Translated and edited by Meyer Levin with illustrations by Ann Neumann. When the Buchenwald concentration camp was freed by the American Army on April 11, 1945, some of the Jewish survivors formed themselves into a group with the purpose of setting themselves up as an agricultural commune, a kibbutz, in Palestine. The journal of Kibbutz Buchenwald is the collective diary that was kept by the members of this group. It contains letters, sketches, and stories in addition to dated entries, and was written in Yiddish, German, Polish, and Hebrew. It comes to us from Meyer Levin, the American novelist, who learned of its existence in Palestine and translated much of it and arranged for the translation of the rest. The book ends with the members of the Kibbutz Buchenwald having started to live and work in Palestine, where they eventually established their own independent settlement in 1948. This settlement exists as Kibbutz Netzer Sereni today. See Judith Tydor Baumel’s full length book, “Kibbutz Buchenwald: Survivors and Pioneers” (Rutgers, 1997).

Rare first edition of this collection of simple stories and fairy-tales for Dutch children, written by Anne Frank at the age of 14, while in hiding. 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.

Paper Wrappers. 12mo. 53 pages. Wolf, Lucien. The Myth of the Jewish Menace in World Affairs or The Truth about the Forged Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Collection of three articles by Lucien Wolf published in English newspapers, offering a scholarly debunking of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, an infamous anti-Semitic tract that claimed that Jews were behind a vast conspiracy to dominate world events. Wolf focuses on the historical context of these claims and showing how the Protocols plagiarizes its material from earlier sources. "An Anglo-Jewish publicist and historian, Wolf, who was born in London, the son of a Bohemian political refugee, began writing for newspapers at the age of 17. His first regular employment was with the Jewish World, of which he later became editor (1905-08). His articles in the Fortnightly Review and elsewhere, under the pseudonym "Diplomaticus, " commanded wide attention. From 1890 to 1909 he was foreign editor of the then-influential Daily Graphic. Aroused by the pogroms of 1881, Wolf became extremely interested in Russian affairs, acquired a reputation as an expert in the field, and edited the bulletin Darkest Russia (1912-14). He was supplied clandestinely with information through a network initiated by Isaac Elhanan Spektor. Wolf's anti-Russian attitude made it difficult for him to continue to work as a foreign correspondent after Great Britain's entry into World War I as Russia's ally. In 1917 he became the secretary of the Joint Foreign Committee (of the Anglo-Jewish Association and the Board of Deputies of British Jews). As such, he attended the postwar Paris Peace Conference, where he was regarded as a spokesman of "western" Jewry. Although he strongly opposed Jewish nationalism in any form, he was largely responsible for the Minorities Treaties to safeguard the civil and religious rights of Central and East European Jews. Subsequently, he acquired a reputation as an authority on minorities problems at the sessions of the League of Nations at Geneva. Originally an admirer and, to some extent, supporter of Herzl, Wolf later became the principal English spokesman of anti-Zionism, though after 1905 he collaborated with Zangwill in the Jewish Territorial Organization (see Territorialism). He had early begun research in Anglo-Jewish history, which he continued throughout his life. He wrote the centennial life of Sir Moses Montefiore (1884), was one of the organizers of the Anglo-Jewish Historical Exhibition of 1887, and founded the Jewish Historical Society of England in 1893 (serving repeatedly as its president). His principal work was on the "middle period" of Anglo-Jewish history (after the expulsion of 1290) and on the resettlement. His contributions, based almost wholly on original sources, were of primary importance and placed the study of the subject on a new basis. He edited reports of trials of Jewish interest from the Canary Islands Inquisition records and in 1925 prepared a report on the contemporary Marranos of Portugal, a historical contribution of great importance. He contributed a most important article to the 11th edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica on anti-Semitism, on the history of which he was the recognized authority in the English-speaking world. In the non-Jewish sphere he wrote a life of the English statesman Lord Ripon (1921) " (Roth, EJ). SUBJECT(S): Jewish Question-Protocols of the wise men of Zion. Ex-library.

  333. [“From a Correspondent”]. ”THE JEWISH PERIL.” – A DISTURBING PAMPHLET. [New York City?], [ca. 1934?]. Letter handbill. 2 pages. 28x22 cm. Two sided printing on thin paper; with Antisemitic cartoon at top of front page. Originally published 1926[?] with a new “Note by Editor:” “The revelations made before the Dies Committee make the reprinting of this article, written eighteen years ago, most pertinent. The ‘Protocol’ prophecy of 1905 has continued, with the aid of Jews, to be fulfilled to the letter for over thirty-three years.” Originally printed in Britain in 1926, this Nazi-era reprint implores that after the printing of “The Jewish Peril” in the London Times, no satisfactory Jewish challenge has been made other then pointing to the police agent S. Nilus as author; the author proceeds to outline the theses of the Protocols in seven paragraphs, and then calls for a critical examination. The author emphasizes two main points which reveal his position: that Bolshevik Russia is ruled by Jews and that the Protocols “have been written by Jews for Jews”; a sophisticated work by an Antisemitic demagogue who implores for critical analysis while at the very same time asserting that the positions of the Protocols are fundamentally true; a position given away by the “Note by Editor” on the back page.

An anti-Marr pamphlet by J. Perinhart, a Reform Jew, who attacked Marr's pamphlet on the grounds that it falsified the reality of Jewish economic life: Perinhart argued that Jews were primarily artisans, and that the connection of Jews as essential to the emergence of capitalism was false. Wilhelm Marr (1819-1904), a radical agitator, had been on the left wing in the 48 revolutions; he later popularized the term anti-semitism, and was the author of the famous pamphlet Der Weg zum Siege des Germanenthums über das Judenthum (The Way to Victory of Germanicism over Judaism, 1879) wherein he introduced the idea that Germans and Jews were locked in a longstanding conflict, the origins of which he attributed to race, argued that Jewish emancipation resulting from German liberalism had allowed the Jews to control German finance and industry, and called for the expulsion of Jews from Germany. Marr later renounced anti-semitism at the end of his life, and declared himself as originally a 'philo-semite', undoubtedly under the impact of the debates in the SPD.

Glossy fundraising brochure with 4 photos, a history of the temporary home for German refugees, quotes from former “guests, ” and a fundraising tear-off (present). The American Jewish Congress House was founded by the Women’s Division of the AJC, under the leadership of Mrs. Stephen S. Wise, to provide temporary food and housing, as well as English lessons, employment assistance, and location of relatives, to the “unfortunate people whom a ruthless and tyrannical dictatorship has uprooted from their native lands and set adrift in a strange country. ” At the time of publication (sometime after October 1938), the house could accommodate 50-60 men, women and children “who remain in the shelter two to three weeks or longer, depending on their circumstances. ” We could find no reference to this publication, not in OCLC nor in normal internet searches. It is perhaps a unique surviving copy. The Jewish Telegraph Agency does report, however, on Sept 26, 1934, that “A reception to members of the Free Synagogue will be held at American Jewish Congress House under the auspices of the Women’s Association of the American Jewish Congress tonight, it was announced yesterday by Mrs. Stephen S. Wise, president. The reception will comprise a tour of inspection of Congress House, which will be opened officially in a short time for members of the Free Synagogue, through whose courtesy the building at 50 West Sixty-eighth street was made available. The Free Synagogue has presented the building to the Women’s Association of the American Jewish Congress. Under the leadership of Mrs. Wise, the Women’s Association has converted the building into a social and recreational center for German refugees. In addition to all the varied uses of a social center, the institution will provide temporary residence for German refugees. ” Very Good+ Condition, an outstanding copy, very suitable for display.

While a considerable amount of international research on exile and emigration of persecuted Jews from central Europe, to North and South America and other parts of the western world and soviet Union was carried out in 1970s and 80s, almost no scholarly effort had, until now, been directed towards such migration to India. The present volume seeks to fill this gap in some measure. This volume has emerged from contributions by Indian, German, & Israeli scholars from a variety of disciplines presented at an interdisciplinary symposium held at New Delhi and papers invited by the editors subsequently. Untapped sources from British, German and Indian Archives have been analyzed in order to map out the political and social parameters of this emigration movement and its cultural and intellectual interpretations.

McDonald. James Grover McDonald (1886-1964), was the League of Nations' High Commissioner for Refugees from Germany. “A history and political science professor, McDonald became interested in the refugee issue in 1933. That same year, he became the head of the newly formed League of Nations' Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees from Germany, which included a Jewish affairs department. McDonald was plagued with obstacles from the start. The United States government did not belong to the League of Nations, while the French and British governments were not supportive of his activities. He was not given adequate funding, so the Joint Distribution Committee allocated monies for most of the office's expenses. In 1935 the racial Nuremberg laws were passed in Germany. McDonald realized that as a result of these laws, many new German refugees would need assistance. Thus, he decided to resign his position as High Commissioner, but in a dramatic way that would call attention to the growing refugee problem. On December 3, 1935 McDonald publicly resigned his post; in his statement he accused the German government of planning racial extermination, and denounced the members of the League of Nations for their apathy and indifference to the issue. ” - Yad Vashem, Shoah Resource Center.

Sanitation is virtually unknown. Words fail me when I try to think of an adequate description... The people of the camp themselves appear demoralized beyond hope of rehabilitation. They appear to be beaten both spiritually and physically, with no hopes or incentives for the future...’ These words were written in September, 1945 by Col. Irving Heymont to his wife Joan, describing the conditions at the Landsberg Displaced Persons Camp, the largest DP camp in Europe. At the young age of 27, he was tasked with serving as its commander, providing the survivors with the opportunity to regain their dignity and self-determination. Many years later, Heymont concluded that ‘the few months I spent at Landsberg had a greater impact on my outlook on life than any other experience in my career. ’ He learned that ‘despite the deepest inhumanity suffered, the spirit of a people to survive and recover cannot be crushed. ’" (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Subjects: Holocaust survivors -- Germany -- Landsberg am Lech.

  413. Greenberg, Uri Zvi [Grinberg, Uri Tsvi]. REHOVOT HA-NAHAR: SEFER HA-EYALIYUT VEHA-KOAH. Yerushalayim: Shoken [Shocken], 1950/51. 1950/51. 1st edition. Original Cloth in the rare illustrated dust jacket. 8vo, 385 pages. 23 cm. In the original Hebrew. Book of Holocaust poetry published just after the Holocaust by one of the greatest 20th-century Hebrew and Yiddish poets. Leah Orent notes that "On Tisha b'Av, the day of collective mourning for Jewish national disasters both ancient and modern, it has become customary to read Holocaust literature. Greenberg's Rehovot ha-Nahar is an epic Holocaust lamentation, published in 1951. Reading a representative selection from the text, we…. Examine how the poet's private voice merges with that of his persona as spokesperson for the Jewish people, addressing a silent God in heaven and confronting the murderers on earth. We…consider the speaker's struggle to balance the guilt of a survivor with his sense of prophetic vocation. Ultimately, the collection articulates a vision of Jewish history flowing like an eternal river from Abraham to Sinai through the horrors of the Holocaust towards the revival of the kingdom of Israel and messianic redemption" (2014). Indeed, Greenberg's poems in this collection are cited by, for example, leading Holocaust scholar David S. Wyman in "The World Reacts to the Holocaust" (Baltimore, 1996, see for example page 922).
