    The First Publication Ever of Any Part of Anne Frank's Diary

  1. • Frank, Anne. FRAGMENTEN UIT HET DAGBOEK VAN ANNE FRANK. In "De Nieuwe Stem," Vol I, Nr. 6 (June, 1946). Van Loghum Slaterus, Amsterdam, June 1946. Original Paper Wrappers, 8vo, 12 pages (pp. 431-442), 23 cm. In Dutch. The first publication of any part of Anne Frank's Diary, appearing the year before the first trade edition of 1947, in "De Nieuwe Stem," Vol I, Nr. 6 (June, 1946).

    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 spent the remainder of his life 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)

    Following the war, Otto Frank’s typed manuscript of Anne’s Diary found its way via a number of different contacts to the Dutch historians Jan Romein and his wife Annie Romein-Verschoor. Anne Romein unsuccessfully tried to find a publisher, leading Jan Romein to write a short article about the diary, which appears on the front page of the April 3, 1946 issue of the Dutch newspaper Het Parool, formerly the newspaper of the Resistance.  Romein notes:  “This apparently inconsequential diary by a child, this ‘de profundis’ stammered out in a child's voice, embodies all the hideousness of fascism, more so than all the evidence of Nuremberg put together. ” 
    Then, 2 months later, "Five Fragments from the Diary of Anne Frank,"  appears in the June 1946 issue of the Dutch intellectual journal De Nieuwer Stem (pages 432-442). As noted by Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett & Jeffrey Shandler in their forthcoming book “Anne Frank Unbound: Media, Imagination, Memory” (Indiana, 2012),  this marks “the first publication of Anne's writing." Posthumously, Anne Frank has achieved her dream of becoming a published writer, of her story coming to light.

    This first appearance, presented here, is still a full year before the first edition of the book would appear, in June, 1947, published by Contact Publishing (Amsterdam), in a run of 3000 copies.
    The Netherlands Institute for War Documentation notes in their “Revised Critical Edition” of the Diary (NY, 1989), that between publication of the excerpt in De Nieuwe Stem and final publication by Contact a year later, further changes were made to the manuscript. Not only  were abbreviations fleshed out, but also entire lines were "pasted over," "several dozen"  words were changed, and "twenty-five passages were crossed out." (p. 70)

New York; Yivo Institute For Jewish Research, 1960-1962. (FT) Publishers cloth. 4to. XXXI, 425; 433, X; XXXI, 330 pages. 28 cm. First edition. Three volumes. All volumes in English, Hebrew, and Yiddish. “Joint documentary projects; Bibliographical series” published jointly by Yivo and Yad Vashem Martyrs' and Heroes' Memorial Authority. These first three volumes in the joint bibliographical series were edited and compiled by Philip Friedman; (1906-1960) a Polish-Jewish Historian, who taught at a Hebrew secondary school in Lodz and at YIVO-Vilna before the war. He survived the holocaust, gathered data on nazi war crimes, testified at the Nuremberg Trials, and lectured at Colombia University and JTSA after emigrating. “Friedman was a member of the YIVO staff and director of the bibliographical series of the Joint Documentary Projects of YIVO and Yad Vashem. Almost all Friedman's postwar publications dealt with the Holocaust period, on which he became a leading expert…The bibliographies of the Holocaust which he edited are Guide to Jewish History under Nazi Impact (coeditor J. Robinson, 1960) , Bibliography of Books in Hebrew on the Jewish Catastrophe and Heroism in Europe (1960) , and Bibliography of Yiddish Books on the Catastrophe and Heroism (coeditor J. Gar, 1962) . “ (EJ 2007) . “The first volume in the series is the Guide to Jewish History Under Nazi Impact, which appeared toward the end of 1960. Although its scope is far more than that of a bibliography, it is nonetheless designated so because of its many references to valuable works, including bibliographies. The second volume in this series is the Bibliography of Books in Hebrew on the Jewish Catastrophe and Heroism in Europe. The present third volume is its twin. The second records publications in Hebrew, the sacred language (leshon hakodesh) , whereas this volume records the publications in Yiddish, the language of the martyrs (leshon hakedoshim) , to use an apposite formulation by the late Chaim Weizmann. Jewish sources are their common denominator. … Although every volume in the bibliographical series is a separate book, the bond between the Hebrew and Yiddish volumes is strong. We do, in fact, regard the entire series as a unit, and so do not describe again entries that have been described in previous volumes. ” (From the Foreword to Volume Three) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) - Bibliography.

Portfolio with Paper Dustjacket. 20 black and white sketches and 10 watercolors. Signed by author, with accompanying text by Esther Lurie; introd. Moshe Sharett; foreword Eugene Kolb, Esther Lurie [1913-1998] was born in Liepaja, Latvia, to a religious Jewish family. From 1931-1934 she learned theatrical set design at the Institut des Arts Décoratifs in Brussels, and afterwards studied drawing at the Académie Royal des Beaux-Arts in Antwerp. In 1934 Lurie migrated to Palestine with most of her family and worked at various artistic activities. In 1939 she travelled to Europe to further her studies. World War II had begun while she was in Lithuania and during the Nazi occupation (1941-44) she was imprisoned in the Kovno ghetto along with the other Jews. As soon as she entered the ghetto, in mid-1941, Lurie began to sketch views of her new world. She has left behind a detailed written testimony of her life and work during World War II. This combination of literary and visual testimony make up a "living witness". Lurie drew everywhere in the ghetto, including the various workshops. Including a pottery workshop. During her visits there, Lurie got the idea of asking the Jewish potters to prepare a number of jars for her. She would use these to conceal her art works if the situation worsened. After the deportation of 26 October 1943, in which 3,000 ghetto inmates were removed to forced labor camps in Estonia, Lurie hid her art collection, approximately 200 drawings and watercolors, in the large jars she had prepared in advance. In July 1944, as the Red Army approached Lithuania, the ghetto was liquidated and those remaining were transferred to concentration camps and forced labor camps in Germany. The ghetto was set on fire and the buildings were blown up and burnt to prevent those hiding from escaping. Esther Lurie was sent to Stutthof concentration camp, leaving her hidden works behind. After the war some of her drawings were recovered, surviving with the Ältestenrat's archive. Avraham Tory succeeded in rescuing 11 sketches and watercolors and 20 of the photographs of her works. During the Eichmann trial, which took place in Jerusalem in 1961, Lurie's Second World War works were exhibited as part of the testimony - giving an "official authorization" from Israel's Supreme Court to the rich documentary value of her sketches and watercolors. This is in addition to their aesthetic value as objects of art. OCLC lists 3 copies worldwide. Edgewear to portfolio & dustjacket. Overall very good condition.

XI, 207 pages. 26 cm. First edition. Bound in pictorial wraps over boards. “As a prisoner during the Holocaust, artist Erich Lichtblau-Leskly created stunning and sardonic colored-pencil drawings, dripping with gallows humor, that depict day-to-day life in Theresienstadt, the Nazi's 'show' ghetto. ‘They Shall Be Counted’ stands as the first and most comprehensive catalogue of Lichtblau-Leskly's works and comprises three periods: the Theresienstadt period of 1942-1945; the postwar period of 1945-1948, when Lichtblau-Leskly and his wife returned to their native Czechoslovakia; and, the Israeli period, which began in early 1950s after their emigration and continued through the 20th century. ‘They Shall Be Counted’ includes articles that, together with the high-quality reproductions of Lichtblau-Leskly's works, present the phenomenon of the Theresienstadt ghetto through the prism of a ghetto-pictorial diary or concise encyclopedia of mundane ghetto-life created by one of its prisoners. This catalogue chronicles both the particular and general predicament of ghetto prisoners as imposed by both petty Nazi officials and German-appointed Jewish leadership and captures the importance of humor as a vehicle for endurance during the Holocaust. Furthermore, the illuminating articles included with the artwork add meaningfully to our understanding of Theresienstadt. ” (Publishers description) .

Title translates as: “Proof of Registered Trade Companies in Litzmannstadt. ” A nazi-era documentation piece of the registered and approved businesses, most owned by Germans in Lodz, on Nazi-era named streets (Adolf Hitler Strasse, etc. ) , by the Nazi regional governing body over this section of Poland at the time: Reichsgau Wartheland. This short document is a composite list of mostly German business owner names and locations, based on type of business (Roofing companies, Utilities, etc. ) . Litzmannstadt was the Nazi era name for the city of Lodz. In 1939, 60 per cent of the population of Lodz was Polish, one third Jewish and just 10 per cent German. But the city was in territory annexed to the Third Reich and the Nazi hierarchy wanted it transformed into a model habitation for the German "volk". Despite plans for the city to become a Polish exclave, attached to the General Government, the Nazi hierarchy respected the wishes of the local governor of Reichsgau Wartheland, Arthur Greiser, and of many of the ethnic Germans living in the city, and annexed it to the Reich in November 1939. The city received the new name of Litzmannstadt after the German general Karl Litzmann, who captured the city during World War I. In the Wartheland, the Nazis' goal was complete "Germanization", or political, cultural, social, and economic assimilation of the territory into the German Reich. In pursuit of this goal, the installed bureaucracy renamed streets and cities and seized tens of thousands of Polish enterprises, from large industrial firms to small shops, without payment to the owners. Poles were forbidden to own rural and industrial enterprises, transport firms, building firms, workshops. The Germanization of the annexed lands also included an ambitious program to resettle Germans from the Baltic and other regions on farms and other homes formerly occupied by Poles and Jews. By the end of 1940, the SS had expelled 325,000 Poles and Jews from the Wartheland and the Polish Corridor and transported them to the General Government, confiscating their belongings.

This profusely illustrated text also marks the commemoration of the opening of the memorial center. “Ravensbrück had some 70 slave labor sub-camps, spread out from the Baltic Sea to Bavaria. By 1944, Ravensbrück was in charge of 70 subcamps that "employed" from less than 100 to 6,000 women in Nazi Germany's war industries, The Nazi's utilization of slave labor to win the war resulted in Ravensbrück's expansion into a virtual empire of slave labor sub-camps. Products that were manufactured by women in these subcamps included aircraft components, weapons, munitions, and explosives. Conditions varied from camp to camp, depending on the size of the camp, changing circumstances as World War II progressed, and the disposition of the personnel in charge. In addition to the Siemens Electric Company, other prestigious and known companies that employed slave labor in Ravensbrück's sub-camps included AEG and Daimler-Benz. More than 55 years after the end of the war, Siemens and other companies were finally beginning to agree to accept responsibility and pay some compensation to their former slave laborers from Ravensbrück. ” (Univeristy of Minnesota Center for Holocaust & Genocide Studies) Subjects: Neustadt-Glewe – Konzentrationslager.

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.

VIII, 289 pages. 24 cm. First edition. Publishers description: “Ravensbruck was the only major Nazi concentration camp built for women. Its history constitutes a crossroads in the various stages of the Third Reich's persecution of women accused of offending the Nazi state and of those ethnically and racially persecuted. Women from different social strata, national, ethnic and religious origins were forced to live together under the most extreme conditions within the social system created by the SS. Among the many crossroads of Ravensbruck was the one in which citizens from the surrounding area, as well as citizens of many of the small towns in which Ravensbruck's external camps were located, came across the prisoners and witnessed the events. From its first days until its liberation, thousands of Jewish women, girls and children were among Ravensbruck's prisoners. They were part of the camp's population even when the industrial mass killing was 'exported' to the East - and Germany, including its concentration camps, was to be 'freed' of all Jews. Against the overall background of the Nazi concentration camps and Holocaust historiography, this collection of essays provides a socio-historical in-depth analysis of the singularity of the female Jewish experience by focusing on the Jewish experience in the microcosm of Ravensbruck. ” Subjects: Women concentration camp inmates - Germany.

Title translates to English as, “What I Read to the Dead. ” Szengel was a poet and songwriter who wrote many of his poems while in the Warsaw Ghetto. When the Germans began deporting the ghetto's Jews to Extermination Camps, the tone of Szlengel's poetry changed. He began writing about the fear felt by the ghetto's inhabitants, now that death was knocking at their doors, and about the relationship between man and God in such a situation. His last poems deal with the deterioration of the ghetto during its final weeks of existence. Even at that point, Szlengel continued to share his poetry with the public---in small, secret get-togethers. Szlengel was killed in April 1943 during the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

Serial publication. An early publication, possibly the first in English, describing the terribly calamity befallen Polish Jewry through a detailed study of what information there exists concerning the Warsaw Ghetto. This publication was compiled from second hand accounts (through Jacob Robinson, who escaped from Lithuania in late 1940 and helped establish the Institute of Jewish Affairs in February of 1941) and by combing through Nazi-German newspapers. This early report is extremely accurate, especially as concerns the diabolical purpose of the ghetto, the functions of the Judenrat, and other facets to the organization of the Warsaw Ghetto. The journal “Jewish Affairs” was published by The Institute of Jewish Affairs. The Institute was established in New York under the auspices of the American Jewish Congress and the World Jewish Congress on 1 February 1941, based on proposals made by Dr Jacob Robinson to the American Jewish Congress in 1939 and 1940. Its aims were to conduct a thorough investigation of Jewish life over the preceding 25 years, to establish the facts of the position of the Jews during World War II, to determine their causes and to suggest how Jewish rights might be claimed in a post-war settlement.

Holocaust-era imprint from London examining this early modern Jewish leader in light of the current devastation in Poland, including an early reference to the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. First edition. "Thesis approved for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in the University of London. " From the preface: “The picture of Jewish life in Poland in the sixteenth century, as portrayed in the present work, stands out in sharp and poignant contrast to the immeasurable calamity that has befallen our Polish Jewish brethren in recent years. The campaign of extermination of the Jews which the Nazis started with the occupation of Poland in 1939, culminating in the slaughter in the Warsaw Ghetto in June, 1943, has become the most colossal human infamy in all history. The diabolical atrocities of Nazi barbarism appear even more gruesome when contemplated against the background of a Poland in which the Jews enjoyed so large a measure of political and economic freedom, a freedom which, in turn, contributed materially to the Jewish spiritual renaissance of the period. ” The main subject of this study, Poland’s Jewish communities in the sixteenth century and the works of Rabbi Moses Isserl (1520 -1572) , who was an eminent Ashkenazic rabbi, talmudist, and posek, renowned for his fundamental work of Halakha (Jewish law) , entitled ha-Mapah (lit, "the tablecloth") , an inline commentary on the Shulchan Aruch (lit. "the set table") , upon which his "great reputation as a halakist and codifier rests chiefly. " He is also well known for his Darkhei Moshe commentary on the Tur. Isserles is also referred to as the Rema, (or Remo, Rama) …the Hebrew acronym for Rabbi Moses Isserles. “ Subjects: Jews -- Poland. Isserles, Moses ben Israel, ca. 1525-1572.

Your congress, while focusing attention upon the achievements of an exceptionally fine organization which has seen 75 years of devoted service to humanity, testifies to the fact that free men can voluntarily overcome differences of custom, race and nationality to work together for a good cause. … In the last six years, the ORT leader reported, more than 80,000 students have passed through the organization's schools. Furthermore, the majority of students now are younger people. Adults had made up 75 percent of the students in 1949, he said, while last year the adults numbered only 25 percent. The number of students in European countries now totals 4, 230. During the last six years, 29,000 students graduated from ORT schools.

One stands in awe of the fact that they outlived these years at all, of their resilience and ability to transform their experiences into the creation of a new way of life. ” (Dustjacket description) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) - Poland - Personal narratives.

This national registry was renamed as the Benjamin and Vladka Meed registry of Jewish Holocaust survivors. “The Benjamin and Vladka Meed Registry of Holocaust Survivors at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is seeking the names of all survivors of the Holocaust and Nazi-era persecution – whether or not currently living – in order to record their experiences for future generations, assist survivors and their families in attempts to trace missing relatives and friends, and provide reference to scholars of the Holocaust, genealogists and members of the public. Established in 1981 by the American Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors as a national registry to document the lives of survivors who came to the United States after World War II, the Registry now includes over 200,000 records related to survivors and their families from around the world. The Museum honors as survivors any persons, Jewish or non-Jewish, who were displaced, persecuted, or discriminated against due to the racial, religious, ethnic, social, and political policies of the Nazis and their collaborators between 1933 and 1945. Inclusion in the Registry is voluntary and contact information will not be made public. Family members can register survivors posthumously. “ (USHMM) .

First edition. Edited by Paul Marcus and Alan Rosenberg; foreword by Martin S. Bergmann. "This is the first comprehensive anthology on the psychological treatment of Holocaust survivors and their families. It covers the full range of current theoretical and therapeutic approaches. It is a major resource for the clinician working with Holocaust survivors and their children, persecuted and traumatized populations, and patients suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome. The chapters are organized around differing perspectives--classical psychoanalytic, self-psychological, group, family, pastoral, empirical research, eclectic. The editors include writings not usually part of the mainstream and focus on relevant yet often unnoticed issues. This book gives its reader a good sense of how a discipline has struggled and evolved in its efforts to understand the impact of an historical event on its victims. The field's diversity of viewpoints and major controversies are put into sharp focus in this volume. It allows the reader--whether practicing clinician, academic researcher, or lay person--the opportunity to compare a wide range of approaches and draw conclusions. While primarily functioning as a resource, it will also serve as historical record to the Holocaust's unprecedented evil." (Jewish Chronicle) Subjects: Holocaust survivors - Mental health.

How can we secure for the world the full contribution which Jews can make, if unhampered by artificial limitations? ” “But the anti-Jewish prejudice was not exterminated even in those countries of Europe in which the triumph of civil liberty and democracy extended fully to Jews "the rights of man. " The anti-Semitic movement arose in Germany a year after the granting of universal suffrage. It broke out violently in France, and culminated in the Dreyfus case, a century after the French Revolution had brought "emancipation. " It expressed itself in England through the Aliens Act, within a few years after the last of Jewish disabilities had been there removed by law. And in the United States the Saratoga incident reminded us, long ago, that we too have a Jewish question. ” From the foreword to this edition: “However, the Jewish Problem did not end in 1919 but stands out more acutely today than ever before.

We have a war to carry on against the Coughlins, the Thorkelsons, the Winrods, and the Pelleys.

A lecture delivered by Dr. Chaim Zhitlowsky at a banquet given in his honor by the Pittsburgh Zhitlowsky jubilee committee on the occasion of his seventieth birthday on May 4, 1935, at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Translated from the Yiddish by Max H. Weinberg. Published by the Yiddish Culture Society of Pittsburgh, back cover also lists “L. M. Stein Publisher” of Chicago. “Yiddish culture flourished in this region [Illinois] in the 1930s and the early 1940s, thanks partly to the vigorous activities of the philanthropic Chicago publisher L. M. Stein, pseudonym of Yitzhok-Leib Fradkin (1883–1956) , who published outstanding works of modern Yiddish literature. Stein provided financial support for diverse Yiddish cultural enterprises and gathered around him a circle of Yiddishists, both men and women, within the framework of the Chicago Sholem Aleichem Institution as well as of the Yiddish Culture Society (Yidisher Kultur Gezelshaft) , which was influential in the 1930s and 1940s in the Midwest and across the border in neighboring Winnipeg. ” (Hagit Cohen, “The Demands of Integration”) the Yiddish Culture Society was Founded in New York in 1928, with branches in Burlington (Vermont) , Denver (Colorado) , Havana (Cuba) , Calgary (Canada) , Rochester (New York) , Allentown (Pennsylvania) , Detroit, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Cleveland and Chicago. It was one of the better known associations devoted to organizing Yiddish literary and cultural events. Chaim Zhitlowsky (1861-1943) was a socialist, philosopher, social and political thinker, writer, literary critic. Founding member and theoretician of the Socialist Revolutionary Party in Russia. Ideologist of Yiddishism and Diaspora nationalism, which influenced the Jewish territorialist and nationalist movements. Ardent proponent of Yiddish language and culture. Chairman of the historic conference on the Yiddish language held in Czernowitz, 1908. This very interesting speech by Zhitlowsky both critiques and attacks assimilationism, and declares the immediate importance of Yiddish: “The press in Yiddish alone unites spiritually the Yiddish speaking Jews of the entire world. A newspaper published in New York is being read in Warsaw, Johannesburg, Buenos-Aires, and even in Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv. A drama, written, let us say, in Wilno, is being played over the entire Jewish world. A book, being published in Warsaw, may have its readers everywhere, and everywhere there gushes from the modern Yiddish culture the real tangible Jewish life. Everywhere the greatest problems are being discussed earnestly of a Jewish existence, of the Jewish struggle for a free and secure existence and an unhampered national development. At the same time, the new Jewish cultural sphere in Yiddish is not circumscribed and limited to the narrow confines of Jewish life only. On the contrary, in no other Jewish cultural sphere in any other language are the great problems of the social liberation of the surpassed classes and peoples discussed in such a respectable, purely human manner as it is precisely in the cultural sphere of the Yiddish language. ” Also, Zhitlowsky repeatedly references the terrible events in Nazi Germany: “This need the youth sensed more keenly in recent times, after the catastrophic collapse of assimilation in Hitlerized Germany. Hitler struck with his hammer not only over the spines, but also the heads and hearts of the German Jews. His hammer blows echoed in the minds and the hearts of all Jews the world over. Everywhere – one Jewish problem, everywhere one great danger. Everywhere the bankruptcy of the assimilation ideals. Everywhere – the same plight and shame which may fall to the lot of every Jew, even a converted one in the fourth generation. Therefore, everywhere – the strengthening of the orientation towards the universal Jewish people. “ Subjects: Yiddish. Only One copy listed on OCLC (Natl Libr Israel) .

Gould; foreword by Elmer Davis, drawings by Jacob Landau. Copyright 1942 by the International committee of Young men's Christian associations. One of the many pamphlets emerging during the war years and for a brief period of the post-war period which pushed for an inclusive democratic outlook and meant to combat prejudice and anti-semitism. This pamphlet traces intolerance in history in a few major sections, that of Religious Persecution, The Black Man’s Burden, The Jew as Scapegoat; with smaller sections devoted to the history of the term scapegoat, the scapegoating of Labor, or Foreign born in America, and of Masonry. A very interesting pamphlet, which both serves to tell of the history of intolerance in America and the immediate necessity of shifting away from that and democratizing society in the states, as well as serves to give reasons why the war is being fought, with a detailed description of anti-semitism in Germany and the need to defeat fascism everywhere. Includes appendix of questions and activities to help spur group discussions. With nine black and white drawings by Jacob Landau (1917-2001) , a printmaker, painter, humanist and teacher; he was an artist whose works explored the basic themes of human existence and morality with an insight that was both passionate and indignant. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he began as an illustrator, he lived most of his adult life in Roosevelt, New Jersey, a town founded in the 1930s as an agro-industrial cooperative for, primarily, Jewish garment workers from New York City. The author of the foreword, Elmer Davis, (1890 –1958) was a well-known news reporter, author, and the Director of the United States Office of War Information during World War II, in the capacity of which Davis recommended to President Roosevelt that Japanese-Americans be permitted to enlist for service in the Army and Navy and urged him to oppose bills in Congress that would deprive Nisei of citizenship and intern them during the war. He argued that Japanese propaganda proclaiming it a racial war could be combated by deeds that counteracted this. This publication was published throughout the Holocaust and DP period, from 1942 until 1952, by the YMCA, and a seven page excerpted edition consisting of the drawings and selected passages was distributed by the Congress of Industrial Organizations as well.

Written for the Jewish Exponent and reprinted from the Issue of July 3, 1936. A supportive review of “The Jews of Germany” by Marvin Lowenthal, written by Rabbi Mortimer J. Cohen, whom was educated at the City College of New York, Colombia, and JTSA. He is remembered for having worked with Frank Lloyd Wright to build the synagogue for his congregation of Beth Sholom in North Philadelphia. Marvin Marx Lowenthal was born on October 6, 1890, in Bradford, Pennsylvania. He was an author, lecturer, traveler, and historian. At Harvard University, Lowenthal became a part of a tight-knit group of Zionists that included Louis Brandeis. In 1916, Brandeis asked Lowenthal to head the Zionist Bureau of the Pacific Coast in San Francisco. Lowenthal began working as its fundraiser until the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) moved to its New York office in 1919. In 1920, Lowenthal decided to abandon the ZOA to pursue a career as a full-time writer. “In 1936, Lowenthal published his most important and popular book, The Jews of Germany: A Story of Sixteen Centuries. In writing this book, he hoped to demonstrate that discrimination against Jews in Germany was not something that [only] became commonplace once Hitler took control. Lowenthal wanted to reach out to his readers and explain that if something was not done about the treatment of Jews in Europe that Jews would be doomed. Lowenthal followed the events in Germany closely and was disturbed by the passing of the Nuremberg Laws in September 1935, which stripped Jews of their citizenship in Germany and forbade Jews to marry non-Jewish citizens. Lowenthal was appalled by the treatment of Jews in Germany; Jews were forced to sit in the back of public buses, drink from different water fountains, and not allowed to use public restrooms. The book was painstaking for Lowenthal to write because of his love for Zionism and his determination to free Jews from discrimination in Europe. The Jews of Germany left Lowenthal exhausted. His book consisted of literary fragments, essay sketches, and writing plans, but no finished product materialized. It is in this book that his craftsmanship and urbanity of style appear at their best. ” (From Guide to the Papers of Marvin Lowenthal) Subjects: Jews - Germany – History.

Its aims were to conduct a thorough investigation of Jewish life over the preceding 25 years, to establish the facts of the position of the Jews during World War II, to determine their causes and to suggest how Jewish rights might be claimed in a post-war settlement. In pursuing this last, it was to focus on the rehabilitation of the Jewish population in Europe where it was possible and they were willing to remain in their homes. Where that was impossible and on the question of emigration, it was to take as its premise that `the National Home in Palestine is the primary solution of the problem of Jewish migration'. Its research initially focused on political science and law, economics, migration and colonisation, and post-war reconstruction, encompassing a watching brief on events affecting the Jews in all countries. As well as its programme of research, the Institute was established to collect documentation and to index holdings of other institutions, particularly on aliens, anti-Jewish measures, recent aspects of anti-Semitism, autonomy, colonisation, exchanges of population, migrations, minorities, nationalism, nationality and citizenship, plebiscites, race hatred, refugees, relief, self-determination, small states, the territorial questions of World War I, war and peace aims, and war and post-war changes. The Institute moved to London in 1965, maintaining its programme of research and publications into contemporary issues affecting Jewish communities across the world. ” (Description from Papers of the Institute of Jewish Affairs at the University of Southampton Libraries) .

Reprinted from Foreign Affairs, 1st edition thus. A famous essay by future first president of Israel Chaim Weizmann, outlining the present situation in Palestine and after the passing away of the nazi terror, the need for a new homeland: “Almost half the Jews in the world find themselves today under the Nazi heel. It is impossible to determine the rate at which their physical destruction is proceeding. Nor is it possible to visualize the condition in which the Jewish masses of Poland, Rumania, occupied Russia and even Hungary will be found when the pall of darkness is finally lifted from Nazi-occupied Europe. Tragic as is the position of the Polish peasant, he is rooted in his native soil -- at least where he has not been dragged away from it and made to slave in an armament factory. The Jew in his Ghetto, on the other hand, finds himself despoiled of everything. Deprived of his meagre possessions, driven from his home, torn from his family, he has become the most abject of all the abject victims of the terror. In the reconstruction of a new and - let us hope - a better world, the reintegration of the Jew will thus present a peculiarly difficult problem, and one which is likely to tax both the energies and the good will of the countries of Eastern and Central Europe. The experience of the past twenty years, and the vexed problem of "minorities" which has caused so much trouble in Europe, hardly give much ground for hope of a satisfactory solution on the spot. No doubt many Jews will return and re-adapt themselves to the new conditions; but there will be vast masses which will have to emigrate. It would probably be unduly optimistic to assume that countries like the United States, Canada, and some of the South American republics, will radically change their immigration policy after this war -- particularly in the strained economic conditions then to be expected. The hunted and disinherited will once more be faced with the eternal question: "Whither?" And little promise can be held out for them unless decisive steps are taken towards a radical solution of their problem...” Subjects: Zionism. World War, 1939-1945. OCLC lists 21 copies worldwide.

Moreover, he translated classical Romanian poems into Yiddish. Groper became a legendary figure among Romanian Jews and in the interwar years was also a popular lecturer. When he resumed writing after the Holocaust, he focused on Jewish suffering in his country, where because he refused to embrace communism he had several disputes with the leadership of the Jewish Democrat Committee. Groper immigrated to Israel in 1964.” (Yivo Encyclopedia) The location of publishing, Iasi, had, for a period, a sizeable post-war Jewish community: “On 21 August 1944, [Iasi] was occupied by the Soviet army. Most inhabitants who had remained were Jews, employed to reorganize local administration. Many who had been displaced by force to Iasi stayed in town. At the same time, many young Jews chose to emigrate to the West or to Palestine with the support of the local Zionist organizations, which had resumed their activity. Community president Avram Hahamu and town rabbi Yosef Safran were among the emigrants. In 1947, there were about 38,000 Jews living in Iasi. In June 1947 a monument was erected to commemorate the victims of the 1941 pogrom in the Jewish cemetery in the Pacurari district. The pogrom was declared a war crime, and the members of the military and the local police who had been responsible for it were arrested. On 26 June 1948, 50 people were condemned to prison. During the Stalinist period, the procommunist Jewish Democratic Committee developed rich cultural activity in Yiddish. Jewish schools were nationalized, but a state-owned public school functioned with Yiddish as the language of instruction. A state-owned Yiddish theater operated between December 1949 and February 1963. Victims of the pogrom were commemorated every year with the participation of local authorities, and on each occasion stress was laid on the fact that the new regime had eliminated antisemitism. Religious life carried on. The Great Synagogue in the Târgu Cucului district was restored and declared a historical monument. The intellectuals of Iasi included many Jewish academics, scientists, writers, journalists, doctors, lawyers, and engineers. The brothers Mendel (1906–1973) and Adolf Haimovici (1912–1993) were prominent mathematicians. IIc Svar-Kara (1906–2001) , a professor specializing in Yiddish and Hebrew, published studies on the history of Jews in Romania and on local Jewish folklore. Iasi became an example used by the Communist regime to claim the improvement of the Jews’ situation in Romania. ” (Yivo Encyclopedia) . Subjects: Yiddish Poetry. OCLC lists 13 copies worldwide.

Fourth Supplement. In Dutch. Gedenckclanck was originally the name of a volume published in the Netherlands in 1626 which contains the well known hymnal, “we go out together now”, a celebration of Dutch independence and liberation. In the occupied Netherlands consecutive four part anthologies of illegal poetry, letters, and writings, all in the service of the resistance, were printed at the same underground press in Alphen aan den Rijn, and each collection was given the same title Gedenckclanck. “Gedenckclanck 1940-1944” was printed in three parts, in the years 1944, 1944, and 1945, of lengths of 112, 176, and 68 pages respectively, in editions of 2200, 400, 200 respectively. The first volume was printed hastily, without corrections being made to the print run. The latter two volumes were reserved for the Royal House (presumably the Dutch Royal Family was allowed to obtain any type of literature even during the occupation) , prisoners in the camps, prisoners overseas, and those fighting in Free Dutch units elsewhere. Part four, entitled “Gedenckclanck 1940-1945” was printed in the early spring of 1945. Four supplements, prepared during the occupation and which appeared one month after the liberation, were produced in very limited print runs. The pamphlet we have to offer is the last of the four in the series. Approximate translation from the title page recto: “This little book was commenced after a presentation entitled "The Message of the Dead". / We go out together now! Radiant, young, happy. But above all grateful. / Closing with the farewell letter from a condemned man. / To the memory of Jaap Sickenga, shot by the Germans on May 11, 1942.” This supplement to pt. 4 of the clandestinely published series of the same title contains letters and poems by or about Dutch victims of Nazi terror. “Gedenckclanck first appeared in the autumn of 1944. They included only illegal poems, referring to the sacrifice of the dead and suffering in prisons and camps. The second Gedenckclanck offered an anthology of illegal poetry, from bundles and loose sheets of papers that had made the rounds. In the third Gedenckclanck illegal prose poetry was also included. Volume four appeared in the early spring of 1945. In the first months after liberation there appeared four 'supplements' also titled: Gedenckclanck. The compiler lectured in various places on 'The Message of the Dead ", after which a few small anthologies of illegal literature were offered. The mimeographed supplements, respectively: 26, 18, 31 and 16 page count. The first was dedicated to the sacrifice of the dead and suffering in prisons and camps. Nos. 2 and 4 contain only testimonies of martyrs. The third supplement is subtitled: Prayers. ” (This information, and the preceding specifications, with gratitude taken from Dirk de Jong (red. ) , “Het Vrije Boek in Onvrije Tijd.

  385. • Rosenheim, Uri. VERBANNUNG. Tel-Aviv; Gafni, 1968. Hardbound. 8vo. 208 pages. 21 cm. First edition. In German. Title translates as: “Exile. ” “Felix Rosenheim (the Hebrew name “Uri” was adopted after moving to Israel) was born in Frankfurt am Main in 1912, the second youngest of nine children. His father, Jacob Rosenheim would eventually become the leader of the world movement of Agudas Israel, the political exponent of Torah Jewry. Felix, however, apparently found the numerous commandments restrictive and rebelled against the traditions promoted by his parents. After completing secondary education and attending, unwillingly, one of the famous Lithuanian Yeshivot, he took courses at the University of Kiel, studied carpentry in Birschheim (Strasbourg) and lived for some time in Brussels before deciding to make aliyah in 1936. Self-described as having oversensitive and overstressed nerves, he sought to relieve his tensions in an ever-mounting outpouring of poetry and aphorisms. Completely absorbed by his creative urge and susceptible to nervous breakdowns, he failed to come to grips with the mundane task of making a living. His occasional jobs were mostly manual including carpentry, working at an orange orchard, a beer brewery, in advertising, and as the co-owner of a second-hand bookstore. Only in his later years did he gain some security as librarian in the multilingual Alliance high school in Tel Aviv. In his private life, Rosenheim was a sensual and romantic personality, writing thousands of passionate poems dedicated to women with whom he was intimately involved. One of the most important was Ruth Lewy (1903-1956) , whom he met in 1936 when she lived with his sister in Israel. Her sudden and premature death in 1956 cut short their close relationship of 18 years and left Felix devastated. In her memory he penned multiple (unpublished) volumes of poetry including Brunnen und Stern and In Wolken. Their motives for never marrying and terminating an earlier pregnancy are unclear; they evidently remained in close and intimate contact until Ruth’s death. Despite his many liaisons, Felix wed none of his youthful amours. Nevertheless, a few years prior to his death in 1973 of an unknown illness, he finally married Sonia (maiden name unknown) . In 1968 his book Verbannung (Exile) appeared to critical acclaim in German-speaking countries, but failed to reach a wide audience. He was a prolific writer, but he wrote almost exclusively in German, never comfortably shifting to either English or Hebrew, a fact which possibly contributed to his frustrated desire to achieve broader recognition. Embodying, in the words of friend and fellow-writer Walter Abish, the ‘eternal European, ’ he dealt with conflicts of identity throughout his life. While often referring to Israel as his Heimat and voicing relief at having escaped the ‘foreign civilization, ’ on the other hand he frequently rhapsodized on his longing for the cities, environment, and cultural milieu he knew in Europe and he remained devoted to the German classical literary and musical tradition throughout his life. Though he sought advice and support from such well-known authors as Stefan Zweig, Thomas Mann, Max Brod et al. And though his widow Sonia approached numerous publishers after Felix’s death, very little of his voluminous work has been published. ” (Guide to the Uri Felix Rosenheim, 1930-1981; Leo Baeck Institute) .

In Yiddish. “Song of the Murdered Jewish People" by Itzhak Katzenelson (1885–1944) , a Hebrew and Yiddish poet. ”Katzenelson’s world fell apart when in August 1942 his wife Hanna and two younger sons, Ben-Tsiyon and Binyamin, were deported to Treblinka. From then on, his literary creativity was piercingly shaped by lamentations over the loss of his family. Nonetheless, with his oldest son, Tsevi, he found the strength to join the Jewish Fighting Organization and took part in the first uprising of January 1943. After the ghetto was destroyed in April and May 1943, he escaped to the Aryan section of Warsaw and obtained a Honduran identity document. Nevertheless, he was sent to a German detention camp for foreign subjects in Vittel, France. He was imprisoned there until April 1944, and devoted most of his time to writing. Two important works were produced during that period: Pinkas Vitel (The Vittel Diary) , a Hebrew composition that uses the language of an incensed diarist and reconstructs the days of terror in Warsaw during the mass deportations; and Dos lid fun oysgehargetn yidishn folk (The Poem about the Murdered Jewish People) , a pathos-filled Yiddish poem that laments the destruction of the Jewish people and of the poet himself, who has been become bitterly angry with humankind and God. These two works are among the boldest and most lofty literary expressions to emerge from the Holocaust. … All of Katzenelson’s works from his Vittel period were either buried in hiding places or were given to people he trusted; consequently, they were saved and published shortly after the end of the war. In the middle of April 1944, Katzenelson and his son Tsevi were sent to the Drancy transit camp, and from there one month later to Auschwitz, where they were murdered. In 1950, the Ghetto Fighters kibbutz built a museum and an institute for research about the Holocaust that bear Yitsak Katzenelson’s name. ” (YIVO Encyclopedia) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) -- Poetry.

Michalski. “Hirsch was born in 1808 in Hamburg, Germany. He went to the public schools, where he was strongly influenced by Schiller and Hegel, and received his Jewish education at home. His father was an observant Jew. His grandfather, Mendel Frankfurter, was the founder of the Talmud Torah in Hamburg. Through the education of his teachers, considered German Jewry's greatest Talmudists, who were proficient in both non-Jewish and Jewish culture, Hirsch decided to train for the rabbinate with the aim of demonstrating that traditional Judaism and Western culture are compatible with each other…Hirsch was both a modernist and a traditionalist. His community became known as a model for communities strict in adherance to halakha, hence the term "neo-Orthodoxy. " In his work, The Nineteenth Letters of Ben Uziel, he remarked that it would have been better for the Jews not to have been emancipated if the price to pay was assimilation. While Hirsch was a scholar and child of the Haskalah, he had no tolerance for the historical approach to Judaism (then an emerging school under Zecharia Frankel and the forerunner of the Conservative movement) as he felt it produced a relativistic attitude toward Torah. He fully believed in the total Divinity of the Torah and rejected the idea that law could be changed as a conscious process of historic development. Hirsch's understanding of modern Judaism became known as "Torah im Derekh Eretz, " after the verse in Pirke Avot (2: 2) that "Torah is good together with derekh eretz. " In the context of the Mishna, derekh eretz means an occupation but Hirsch expanded its meaning to include full engagement with western culture, while maintaining adherence to Jewish law. In this, he created the idea of the "Israel-Mentsch, " the enlightened religious personality. While he believed that style or non-halakhic externalities could be changed, he believed that the essence of Jewish law and belief could not change” (Jewish Virtual Library) .

Revised and edited by Oscar Lehmann, printed in 1938. Two haggadahs were printed in Germany in this year, our copy from Frankfurt and the other from Berlin, comprising two of the last haggadahs printed in Germany until after the Holocaust. This Haggadah, bound in beige boards with a cloth backstrip, contains a dozen large plates depicting illustrations from medieval german Haggadahs. Rabbi Marcus Lehmann (Meir; 1831–1890) , was a “German Orthodox rabbi, scholar, and writer. Lehmann was born in Verden, Germany, and studied with Israel Hildesheimer in Halberstadt, with S. L. Rapoport in Prague, and at Halle. In Prague he was friendly with the writer Solomon Kohn, who may have influenced Lehmann's future work as a writer. In 1853 an organ was introduced in the synagogue of Mainz and in 1854, when the Orthodox members formed a separate congregation, Lehmann was elected their rabbi and, eventually, one of the leaders and spokesmen of modern German Orthodoxy. In Mainz he founded a religious school which from 1859 was an elementary day school for boys and girls. Lehmann wrote polemically against Reform and founded the weekly Israelit (1860–1938) to counter the influence of Ludwig Philippson's Reform periodical, Allgemeine Zeitung des Judentums; the Israelit became the principal voice of German Orthodoxy. Lehmann was the main contributor to the Israelit and his many historical novels, including Rabbi Joselmann von Rosheim (translated into English as Tales of Yore, 1947) , and short stories were first published in it. His stories were collected in Aus Vergangenheit und Gegenwart (6 vols, 1872–88) , and many were translated or adapted into Hebrew, Judeo-Arabic, French, Hungarian, English, and other languages. … Of more scholarly importance, though also primarily intended for popular instruction, are his German edition of the Haggadah (1906, 1914, 1926) , anonymously revised and enlarged by H. Ehrmann and translated into English (1969) , and his Sabbath lectures on Avot, collected as Die Sprueche der Vaeter (in installments, in: Israelit, 1895–1905; 3 vols, 1921/23) in which Lehmann made use of earlier commentators, particularly of Samuel b. Isaac 's Midrash Shemu'el, and thus made the commentators accessible to the German reader. Lehmann also published the tractate Berakhot of the Jerusalem Talmud with the commentary of Solomon Sirillo and his own notes, Meir Nativ (1874) . Lehmann translated the Pentateuch (1873, 19136) in the Bible translation initiated by the Orthodox Bible Institute to counter the translation of Zunz and others. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) Note that this edition and year was not listed in the EJ, aparantly because of its scarcity.

  415. • Naor, Betsalel. KABBALAH AND THE HOLOCAUST. Spring Valley, NY; Orot, 2001. Publishers cloth. 4to. 135 pages. 27 cm. First edition. “Rabbi Bezalel Naor, well known lecturer and author, has published a unique contribution to Holocaust studies. The book, entitled "Kabbalah and the Holocaust, " deals specifically with Kabbalistic responses to the Shoah. Based both on interviews with survivors and historic research, the author records how Kabbalists of various communities fell back on their respective mystic traditions to avert the evil decree. In this book, Rabbi Naor performs a twofold service, tracing the historic development of different schools within Kabbalah, and telling how representatives of those schools used the weapons within their spiritual armamentum to combat the enemy. Thus, the reader gains perspective on the Lithuanian Mitnagdic school of the Vilna Gaon, the Galician-Hungarian-Rumanian Hasidic dynasty of Nadborna, the Balkan (Bulgaria, Greece and Yugoslavia) Sephardic school, the Polish Hasidic tradition of Pshyscha (Kotzk-Izbica-Lublin-Radzyn) , and the Yemenite approach. The book is essential to Holocaust studies for yet another reason. It corrects a certain ethnocentric distortion by showing that the conflagration affected Sephardic Jews and came close to engulfing Yemenite Jewry. Discussed are topics such as: meditation; reincarnation; Divine communication; free will vs. Predestination; good and evil and beyond; automatic speech; and Semitic and Japhetic civilizations. Rabbi Bezalel Naor has been a student of Kabbalah for many years, and has published numerous scholarly articles and books in the field, including recently the revised version of the Vilna Gaon's commentary to Sifra di-Zeni'uta from a manuscript in the Library of Congress in Washington, D. C. Kabbalah and the Holocaust is a handsome folio volume, cloth hardcover with black endpapers.

This letter was written and signed in ink by Alfred Rigling, librarian at the Franklin Institute, addressed to a Mr. Edward Rightor, Esq. Of New Orleans, concerning the existence of the “document said to be an abstract from the Journal of Charles Pinckney of South Carolina. ” “Neither the original, nor any copy of it, is in the possession of The Franklin Institute. ” The letter proceeds to declare that the letter does not exist anywhere; and that as of July 16th, after reports of the supposed “Franklin Prophecy” (as this anti-semitic forgery is known as) being broadcast from Nazi German radios, the Franklin Institute librarian confirms that the existence of this supposed document is “foreign propaganda. ” “Another anti-Semitic hoax on history, of a piece with that incredible forgery, The Protocols of The Learned Elders of Zion, …is a speech attributed to Benjamin Franklin during the Constitutional Convention of 1787. The anti-Semitic movement, which founded the hoax, calls it the Franklin Prophecy — ascribing to Franklin a dire warning that unless Jews were expelled from the new nation by Constitutional decree they would ultimately immigrate in great numbers to the detriment of the Christian population. Of course, no such speech was ever made. But the hoaxers sought to impart an aura of historical credibility to the fake by claiming that the speech is quoted in a "private diary" of Charles Pinckney, Revolutionary leader who was delegate from South Carolina to the Constitutional Convention” (ADL, 1954) .

Title translates as: “Israel amongst Nations. ” The chapters in this book deal with persistent problems of Jewish identity. Kahler claims these can be fully understood only by awareness of the close interconnection between the singular ethnic nature and the unique social structure of the Jewish people. He discusses the Jews in Europe, specifically the historical implications of a strict tribal ritual that yet permitted the widest spiritual scope. The second half of the book concerns anti-Semitism, in relation to Jews and Germans. How did the German people, seemingly so congenial to the Jews, develop a murderous revulsion against them, ending a long and fruitful symbiosis? Kahler sees this as a parallel to the parricidal rejection of the Jews by the Christian church. Erich von Kahler (October 14, 1885 Prague – June 28, 1970 Princeton) studied philosophy, literature, history, art history, sociology, and psychology at Munich, Berlin, and Heidelberg before earning his doctorate at the University of Vienna in 1911, with a thesis titled Über Recht und Moral. He was amongst the members of the aesthetic and radically conservative poetry circle Georgekreis in the late 1920’s, an influential literary circle on radical conservative circles. In 1933, deprived of his German citizenship by the Nazi regime, he left Germany, immigrating to the United States in 1938 after a period of residence in England. In the U. S. He taught at The New School for Social Research, Black Mountain College, Cornell University, and Princeton University, and was a member of the Instiute for Advanced Studies at Princeton.

The author, “William Hard was born on September 15, 1878 in Painted Post, New York, the son of missionaries Clark Pettengill and Lydia van Someren Hard. Hard received his preliminary education at the Philander Smith Institute, Mussoorie, India and in public school in Lima, New York and at University College, London, England before enrolling at Northwestern University. After receiving a B. A. In history in 1900, he received a fellowship at Northwestern and lectured there in medieval history. In 1901, Hard moved to the Northwestern University Settlement House. His professional journalism career began in 1902 with Hard's involvement in the production of Settlement House's monthly newsletter. Like many of his colleagues, Hard developed sympathies for the plight of urban workers and ties to the organized labor movement. He was widely acknowledged among his colleagues for the quality of journalistic integrity which characterized Hard's work. In 1906 he worked as a free-lance contributor to many magazines, an activity in which he continued until the end of his life. He was a member of the editorial staffs of Everybody's and Metropolitan magazines; the latter then edited by Theodore Roosevelt. With the advent of radio, a new career path for Hard opened up. By 1929 he was a regular correspondent and commentator for the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) . Between 1930-1935 Hard broadcast reports and interviews from Washington, D. C, the 1932 Republican Convention in Chicago, and Berlin. In February 1937, he was appointed executive assistant to the Chairman of the Republican National Committee and served as secretary of the Republican Program Committee. He resigned his party posts in October 1938, saying he wished to return to ‘independent political journalism. ’ In the following year, he began writing for Reader's Digest and was roving editor for the magazine until his death in New Caanan, Connecticut in 1962. He was married in Chicago, November 3, 1903 to Anne Nyhan, adopted daughter of Wiley S.

Paper Wrappers. 12mo. 53 pages. "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.

Named Person: Dreyfus, Alfred, 1859-1935. Cover title. “Edition originale, ” Carteret, Tresor ... 1801-1875, II, 497. Zola (1840–1902) was a “French novelist and champion of Alfred Dreyfus. He...contrasted the advanced Hebrew concept of the unity of mankind with the racist’s primitive insistence on interracial conflict and hatred. Zola’s involvement in the Dreyfus Affair reached a climax when he published an open letter to President Felix Faure on the front page of George Clemenceau’s radical daily L’Aurore, headlined “J’accuse…! ” (Jan. 13, 1898) . He charged the French government and army with conspiring to suppress the true facts and with committing “high treason against humanity” by diverting popular anger from their own reactionary intrigues to the fabricated crime of a hapless, insignificant Jew. Zola’s widely publicized accusation gave new heart to the supporters of Dreyfus and led to a prison sentence which the writer avoided by taking refuge in England. It also led many more to suspect that there had been a miscarriage of justice, and resulted in Dreyfus’ retrial and eventual vindication. Zola returned to the case in L’affaire Dreyfus, where he reiterated his belief in a conspiracy of army officers and clericalists aimed at overthrowing the Republic, and declared: “Truth is on the march; nothing can stop it now” (Berenbaum and Skolnik in EJ 2010) .

The Jews, their Families (? ) and their Business. " The text is very anti-Semitic and harshly criticizes the Jews in Sweden, describing them as being inferior to the Swedes, using very clear “us” and “them” language. This is actually an ad for a set of two volumes entitled "Swedish Jew calendar. " Volume I deals with Jews in Stockholm, and Volume II with Jews in the provinces. The purpose of these two books is to locate all immigrant Jews, their relatives/families, and their business and companies in order to stop the destruction of Swedish-owned businesses by Jewish businesses. The text also accuses the Swedish Social-Democratic Party of being loyal to Jewish refugees above ethnic Swedes in Sweden. It appears that the actual book was never printed (no listings on OCLC, on the web; none known by Swedish booksellers we consulted) . Perhaps the content was beyond the pale, too Antisemitic for established Stockholm publishers? The back of the pamphlet suggests, "Pre-orders for these two titles should be sent to Svea Rikes Förlag in Stockholm. " This little pamphlet is very important for several reasons: First, relatively little has been written about Antisemitism in Sweden, the land of Raoul Wallenberg and the home of many, many survivors after the War. Second, the pamphlet has a direct connection to one of the pivotal rescue stories of the Holocaust, which was to transpire the following year: the Danish boatlift. And, finally, all attempts to make directories of Jews and Jewish businesses have to be seen as plans for the eventual ethnic cleansing that would take place following a Nazi victory. We located no copies of this pamphlet anywhere (including in the Royal Swedish Library) . Very light edgewear, small closed tear to bottom, none affecting text or graphic elements. Very Good- Condition. (HOLO2-88-20) (ID #29081) $350.00.

Paper wrappers. 12mo. X, 142 [2] pages. 18 cm. First edition. Transliterated Yiddish, in German Script. Title translates as: “The Schabbes Lamp of polished metal: with eight kosher oils. ” With 2 black and white plates and three illustrations. Insulting plate of assimilated Jewish family facing page 39: Father in Napoleonic headwear feeds baby who is sitting on chamber pot set in middle of table as fashionably dressed women of the family look on. Dialogues and sermons in imitation of Yiddish attack Jews as internationalists linked with the forces of the Enlightenment which led to the French Revolution (and hence to Napoleon's invasion of Germany) . 'Itzig Feitel Stern, ' author of Die Schabbes Lamp, is assumed to have been a pseudonym for Johann Friedrich Sigmund Freiherr von Holzschuher (1796-1861) , who published numerous anti-Semitic pamphlets of this nature, including two dictionaries of supposed Hebrew-German slang and expressions. Written for a German-Christian audience this, and other publications by Holzschuher, are anti-Semitic parodies of plays, songs, and parodied Talmud quotations. He was able to create his fictive author Itzig Feitel Stern as a writer of mock-Yiddish who spoke a mangled language which was neither Yiddish nor German, but (Gemauschel) , German spoken with a Yiddish accent. A non-Jewish judge and author, (Johann Friedrich Sigmund von) Holzschuher in "parables, stories, farcical poems and anecdotes, which he wrote under the pen name of Itzig Feitel Stern ... Presented a distorted picture of the Jews. By means of Jewish wit, which he tried to imitate, he attempted to fight against the Jews, to ridicule them, and to deprive them of their livelihood, by "uncovering their trickery". -- Universal Jewish Encyclopedia. The subject matter of all Holzschuher's works is identical: the narrow-minded blindness of the Jew. This "comic" presentation of the Jew has as its intent the undermining of any sense that the Jew could change from his negative image which dominated the Christian consciousness. The books by Holzschuher are written in roman letters and are stripped of most of its Hebrew elements. What Hebrew elements are preserved are those that Yiddish shared with the thieves' jargon, words that would have been available in the common patois of the fictionalized criminal of the German adventure tales. See: Friedrich Christian Benedict Avé-Lallemant, Das Deutsche Gaunertum (.) , (Leipzig 1862) . Subjects: Judaism -- Controversial literature. Anti-Jewish propaganda.

Leo Baerwald was rabbi of the Munich Jewish community from 1918-1940. Leo Baerwald was born in Saaz, Austria-Hungary (now Žatec, Czech Republic) on October 23, 1883. The son of Aron Baerwald, the rabbi of Saaz, and Fanny Lazarus, he was descended from a family of rabbis and well-known Jewish scholars including Moritz Lazarus and Heymann Steinthal. Baerwald studied at the Jüdisch-theologisches Seminar in Breslau (now Wroclaw, Poland) . After serving in World War I as a military chaplain (Feldrabbiner) , he became a rabbi for the Jewish community in Munich. He kept this position until his departure from Germany. From 1933 on Baerwald struggled against the Nazi regime. He was refused a travel permit to leave the country for health reasons. It was in 1940 that he was finally able to leave Germany for England, where he waited for a visa to the United States. After arriving in the United States, Baerwald settled in New York City, where he became the rabbi of the Congregation Beth Hillel in Washington Heights. This congregation was made up of Jewish refugees from Munich and Nuremberg. He retired from this position in 1955. After his retirement he continued to support the congregation as well as becoming involved in the work of the Leo Baeck Institute and the American Federation of Jews from Central Europe. Leo Baerwald died in New York in 1970 at the age of 86. Ludwig Feuchtwanger (1885-1947) was trained as a lawyer, but worked as an author, journalist, and publisher. He was editor of the publishing house Duncker & Humbolt and in the years 1936 to 1939 Feuchtwanger was also appointed director of the Jewish teaching house in Munich and a lecturer at the Central Office for Adult Education (Mittelstelle der juedischen Erwachsenenbildung) . In 1938, he was imprisoned in Dachau concentration camp. Ludwig Feuchtwanger and his family managed to emigrate to Winchester in England in 1939.

Brief description of the Kulturbund Deutscher Juden from the Wiener Library in Tel-Aviv: “The Kulturbund Deutscher Juden was an organisation engaged in promoting culture and the arts among the Jews of Germany between 1933 and 1941. Its purposes were to enable the Jewish population to maintain a cultural life and to alleviate the distress of the thousands of Jewish theatrical artists and musicians who had been thrown out of their jobs when the Nazis came to power. The instigators were Kurt Baumann, a theatre director and Kurt Singer, a neurologist. The self-help organisation, which was funded by members' contributions, sought, in the first instance, to create work opportunities for the unemployed artists. The original title 'Kulturbund Deutscher Juden' had to soon be changed as a name containing the words 'German' and 'Jewish' was politically unacceptable. After the initial foundation in Berlin, numerous branches emerged in other German towns and cities. By 1935 there were 36 regional and local 'Kulturbünde' (unions) with approximately 70,000 members. The individual branches were forced to affiliate to the 'Reichsverband jüdischer Kulturbünde in Deutschland' (Reich Assembly of Jewish cultural unions, RJK) by August 1935. The RJK was placed under the aegis of the 'Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda' (the Reich Ministry of Propaganda) . The performances of these unions, which were censored and monitored by the Gestapo, had to be individually sanctioned by the 'Reichskulturwalter' (Reich Culture Chamber manager) , Hans Hinkel. In order to facilitate the activities of the unions the RJK instituted self-censorship. In July 1937 there were 120 independent organisations, including synagogues and cultural groups united under the umbrella of the RJK. Performances and events of the unions (above all in Berlin) took place on a daily basis. Between 1933-1935 the main venue was the Berliner Theater. The Hamburger Kulturbund was also very active. The programme included theatre and and opera performances, concerts, art, cabaret, film shows, lectures, and exhibitions. In order to ensure cultural segregation, non Jews could neither perform at nor attend these events. The works of German authors and composers could not be performed. After the November pogrom of 1938 most unions were forced to close. Only the Berlin Kulturbund was given the permission by Joseph Goebbels, for propaganda reasons, to remain active. In 1939 the RJK was wound up and in its place the 'Jüdische Kulturbund in Deutschland e. V. ', formed of the remnants of the Berlin Kulturbund, took responsibility for and organised all Jewish cultural performances thereafter. The emigration of many important Jewish artists had a detrimental effect on the quality and quantity of subsequent events. The union was finally closed down on 11 September 1941 by the Gestapo and many of its members and officials, including the founder, Kurt Singer, were deported and murdered. ” The beginning of the project was initiated by Baumann and Singer, with the assistance of Berlin’s chief rabbi Leo Baeck, conductor Joseph Rosenstock, and journalist Werner Levie.

Includes Cd-Rom, news reports, and spiral bound research report, the contents of which include: Ford's research efforts in assessing the activities of its subsidiary in Nazi Germany by Simon Reich - Research findings about Ford-Werke under the Nazi regime prepared by Ford Motor Company Archives - An independent assessment of the Ford Motor Company Research Project on Ford-Werke under the Nazi regime by Lawrence Dowler. “Nazi atrocities at Ford-Werke studied. Dearborn, Mich, Dec. 6 (UPI) -- More than 45 historians, researchers, archivists and translators spent 3-1/2 years combing through more than 98,000 pages of documents on the operations of Ford-Werke, Ford's German subsidiary, under Hitler's Nazi regime. They found Ford Motor Co. Did not profit from the factory run by the Nazi war machine during World War II. Ford Thursday released an exhaustive 208-page report on Ford-Werke and donated $4 million for studies on forced and slave labor and humanitarian relief. The Cologne plant, like most foreign-owned industries in Germany, were nationalized after the Nazis came to power in the 1930s. Historical records confirm Ford-Werke used more than 2,000 forced and slave laborers -- Poles, Jews, French, Italian, Russian and Eastern Europeans -- at any given time, but the total number exploited during the war could not be determined. Ford began the inquiry in 1998 as German companies were being pressured to make financial restitution to hundreds of thousands of forced and slave laborers of World War II. Ford-Germany contributed about $13 million to a reparations fund for surviving slave laborers. ‘The use of forced and slave labor in Germany, including at Ford-Werke, was wrong and cannot be justified, ’ Ford Motor Co. Chief of staff John Rintamaki said. Information gathered from more than 30 archives, he said, ‘didn't find anything substantial that hasn't been known before, but we did add a great deal of detail on this subject. ’ ‘In looking back, it must be remembered that all companies operating in Germany at that time had to use labor provided by the German government, and that the Nazi regime chose to provide forced and slave laborers to industry, ’ Rintamaki said. ‘By being open and honest about the past, even when we find the subject reprehensible, we hope to contribute toward a better understanding of this period of history. ’ The report ‘Research Findings About Ford-Werke Under the Nazi Regime, ’ was overseen by Lawrence Dowler, a former librarian and archivist at both Harvard and Yale universities, and written by Simon Reich, a noted scholar on the German auto industry between 1939 and 1945. The more than 98,000 documents and other historic materials gathered for the report will be added to the permanent collection of Ford archives at the Benson Ford Research Center at Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village. The research will be available on a searchable database at the center's new 66,000-square-foot facility scheduled to open March 4.
