  3. (Bermuda Conference) British Section Of The World Jewish Congress. REPORTS OF THE WORLD JEWISH CONGRESS: BRITISH SECTION: A NOTE ON BERMUDA AND AFTER. London; British Section Of The World Jewish Congress, 1943. Original Wrappers. 8vo. 16 pages. 25 cm. First edition. A critical analysis of the Bermuda Conference, with immediate proposals and measures to be enacted “to save European Jewry from extermination.” The “Bermuda conference [was an] Anglo-American Conference on Refugees in 1943. During World War II, Jewish and general public opinion in the U. S. And the British Commonwealth urgently demanded that the Allied governments rescue the victims of the Nazi regime. Under pressure from parliament, churches, and humanitarian organizations, the British Foreign Office, on Jan. 20, 1943, proposed joint consultation between Britain and the U. S. A. To examine the problem and possible solutions. After an exchange of diplomatic notes, the Anglo-American Conference on Refugees was held in Bermuda from April 19 to 30, 1943. The American delegation was headed by Harold Willis Dodds, president of Princeton University; the British delegation, by Richard Law, parliamentary undersecretary of state for foreign affairs. No private organizations or observers were admitted but interested Jewish organizations in America and England prepared memoranda proposing rescue measures. Chaim Weizmann submitted a document on behalf of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, underlining the importance of Palestine in the solution of the problem of Jewish refugees, and demanding abandonment of the policy based on the British White Paper policy of May 1939. The delegates, however, anxiously avoided referring to the Jews as the Nazis' major victims. Disagreement between the two governments about continuing the Intergovernmental Committee of Refugees, founded at the Evian Conference in July 1938, took up most of the time but it was decided eventually to extend its mandate to deal with postwar problems. British plans for opening up camps in North Africa as a haven for refugees during the war proved impracticable. After seven months – on Dec. 10, 1943 – the report of the conference was published. Its only positive decision – to revive the Evian Committee – came too late to save a single Jew from the Nazi Holocaust.” (EJ 2007) Subjects: World War, 1939-1945 -- Refugees.

The “American Jewish Conference [was a] representative American organization established in 1943 at the initiative of B'nai B'rith to deal with the problems of Palestine and the European Holocaust. Originally composed of representatives of all major Jewish groups and delegates from local Jewish communities, the Conference was given direction from Zionist bodies which sought a pro-Zionist declaration by a body representing American Jewry as a whole. Such a declaration was overwhelmingly adopted at its New York assembly in August 1943. As a result, the American Jewish Committee seceded from the Conference. Nevertheless, the organization submitted a series of pro-Zionist statements to official national and international bodies and waged a public relations campaign until its dissolution in 1949.” (EJ 2007) Subjects: Jews -- United States -- Politics and government -- Periodicals.

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

Bloomington; Indiana University Press, 2007. Publishers Cloth. 8vo. X, 838 pages. 25cm. Illustrated. First edition. [16] pages of plates. “The private diary of James G. McDonald (1886–1964) offers a unique and hitherto unknown source on the early history of the Nazi regime and the Roosevelt administration’s reactions to Nazi persecution of German Jews. Considered for the post of U. S. Ambassador to Germany at the start of FDR’s presidency, McDonald traveled to Germany in 1932 and met with Hitler soon after the Nazis came to power. Fearing Nazi intentions to remove or destroy Jews in Germany, in 1933 he became League of Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and sought aid from the international community to resettle outside the Reich Jews and others persecuted there. In late 1935 he resigned in protest at the lack of support for his work. This is the eagerly awaited first of a projected three-volume work that will significantly revise the ways that scholars and the world view the antecedents of the Holocaust, the Shoah itself, and its aftermath.” (Publisher’s description) Subjects: Diplomats -- United States -- Diaries.

With a foreword by Hersh Smolar. Published in Wroclaw, Poland. With 5 leaves of plates, graphs, and maps. “To A New Life: Two Years of the Jewish Settlement of Lower Silesia”. Written by Jacob Egit (1908-1996), a Soviet Jewish soldier who led the call for resettlement in lower Silesia, to “exact retribution and justice by making the former German territory a Jewish settlement. ’ Initially, with Soviet Communist support, Egit’s plan developed quickly. Starting with a small group of concentration camp survivors, the settlement grew to encompass Jewish schools, hospitals, farming colonies, orphanages, theatre and newspapers and a book publisher.” (“Jacob Egit and the Jewish Community after 1945”; Beiteinu Chaj Foundation). Egit was arrested in 1948, released in 1950, served as editor of the publishing house Yiddish Buch in Warsaw, and later emigrated to Montreal. “In 1946, Polish Silesia—that is, prewar German Silesia and the Polish Silesian province—became a center for the settlement of Jews repatriated from the Soviet Union. By July of that year, they numbered 110, 000. Many emigrated almost immediately after the Kielce pogrom of 4 July 1946; a year later, about 53, 000 remained, making up just over half of the entire Jewish population of Poland at the time. For a short while, the government supported the revival of Jewish cultural life in the region. A press in Yiddish (Nidershlezye) and Polish (Nowe Zycie) was published; and there were Jewish political parties, religious communities, schools, and a theater. The Silesian community, however, dependent as it was on government support, was soon overshadowed by Warsaw and Lódz.” (Yivo Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe) Subjects: Jews - Silesia, Lower (Poland and Germany).

Previously a Nazi concentration camp, the Landsberg Displaced Persons camp was initially commanded by Irving Heymont. The camp was an important center of Zionist support and was headquarters to the first ORT rehabilitation program. The camp closed in 1950. “’The camp is filthy beyond description. 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, ushmm.org) Subjects: Holocaust survivors -- Germany -- Landsberg am Lech.

The aim of the conference was to examine the role of women in the ghettoes; in resistance groups; in hiding, passing and escaping; and in the concentration camps of Nazi-occupied Europe. As the first conference on this subject, the event not only opened up a new area of research on women, but also enabled the issues raised to be put on the intellectual map of Holocaust studies.” (Introduction) Some shelf wear, very good condition.

Using survey data and research sourced from previous studies, Maass constructs a comprehensive description of motivations leading to name changes for immigrants to the United States and the individual and cultural impacts of these changes. “The name changers acted in the belief that a new cognomen would enhance their adjustment. Their actions showed that in their image of America and their role in the new country there existed certain tensions, difficulties, conflicts and also hopes of overcoming them.” (Page 171) OCLC lists 3 copies worldwide.

The High Commission was formed as an autonomous organization constituted by representatives from the League of Nations, and headed by U. S. Diplomat James G. McDonald. Facing the political and social crisis of mass emigration from Nazi Germany, the High Commission set out to facilitate the travel and resettlement of tens of thousands of refugees. Presented in this report are the successes at mitigating the hostile and inadequate conditions of refugees through private funding and organizations. However, James McDonald further recommends the dissolution of the commission so that a more effective and directly government backed organization can be created to address the larger issues faced by refugees escaping Nazi persecution. “This meeting of the Governing Body, which has to examine what has been done and what remains to be done for the refugees from Germany, is an appropriate occasion to consider a basis for the definite liquidation at the end of this year of the High Commission for Refugees from Germany and the transfer of its responsibility to a new organization directly responsible to the League of Nations.” (Page 5) McDonald resigned in protest from his position as High Commissioner for Refugees Coming from Germany in 1935.

London; Office Of The High Commissioner, 1934. Original Wrappers. 8vo. 32 pages. 22 cm. First edition. Report from the High Commission for Refugees (Jewish and Other) Coming from Germany. The High Commission was formed as an autonomous organization constituted by representatives from the League of Nations, and headed by U. S. Diplomat James G. McDonald. Facing the political and social crisis of mass emigration from Nazi Germany, the High Commission set out to facilitate the travel and resettlement of tens of thousands of refugees. This report suggests the growing discontent of McDonald and the chairman, The Viscount of Cecil of Chelwood, with the lack of organized government response to what they describe as a growing and urgent crisis. “The accomplishments of the private organizations dealing with the refugees in nearly all of the countries bordering on Germany and in many other countries where there are a considerable number of refugees deserve the highest praise. Their manifold activities in supplying relief, in directing retraining and in administering emigration, have resulted in the settlement of approximately 27, 000 refugees from Germany in new homes. […] But no one connected with the work is satisfied. On the contrary, partially as the result of recent regulations by the German Government affecting the transfer of funds, the situation of thousands of Jewish and Christian refugees is now acute. In certain centres, particularly Paris and Prague, the need for immediate day-to-day relief is desperate. Moreover, funds for training and retraining are inadequate, and the larger funds needed for the carrying forward of the further tasks of emigration and settlement, are not only not yet available – there is even doubt whether these will be made available.” (Page 7) McDonald resigned in protest from his position as High Commissioner for Refugees Coming from Germany in 1935.

First edition. Two maps, one fold out map titled “German Concentration Camps” and one full page map titled, “Displaced Persons Installations: 10 August 1946.” Various tables throughout describing population, refugee and immigration statistics. A seminal study of European refugees throughout the wartime and post-war period. Analysis, using statistics and examination of primary documents, discussing refugees, displaced persons, the cultural and political climate of Europe throughout the time period. “This study, the product of six years of hard research by one man, fills an important gap in the history of the European refugee in that it covers the hitherto uncovered years of military control, when the refugee problem was at its peak. The author also sheds new light on the operations of UNRRA and the International Refugee Organization. The events which resulted in the displacement, repatriation and resettlement of more than 60 million Europeans are handled chronologically. The main thread is that of nationality. It is thus possible for the reader to trace readily down these momentous years the fate of the French, the Russians, the Poles and all the other nationalities involved. Separate chapters are devoted to the Jewish refugee problem, and to the expelled Germans. The author, whose sudden death in November, 1955, brought a brilliant career to an untimely close, was Professor of Political Geography at Northwestern University, Illinois; he was formerly the Assistant Director of the U. S. Bureau of the Census. During the war he served in the Displaced Persons Branch of SHAEF. Here, he was responsible for the writing of the detailed military reports on refugee matters, and in the course of his duties he travelled widely throughout the areas under allied military control.” (Dust Jacket) Subjects: Political refugees.

First American edition. “The acrimonious debate over British policy towards refugees from the Nazi régime has scarcely died down even now, some 60 years later. Bitter charges of indifference and lack of feeling are still levelled at politicians and civil servants, and the assertion is made that Great Britain's record on refugee matters is shabby and unworthy of its liberal traditions. Island Refuge is the definitive account of a largely unexplored and still highly controversial episode in twentieth-century history.” (Publishers description) Subjects: Jews - Persecutions - Germany.

Title page verso: The Old Man of Lompaduni and other Stories. This beautifully illustrated book of childrens stories is printed in seven colors of ink. The author of these seven stories in Yiddish was Yuri Suhl, who emigrated from Poland to the United States in the 1920’s, and became well known as a Yiddish poet and childrens writer. His other works included the popular "They Fought Back: The Story of Jewish Resistance in Nazi Europe.” That work was praised as a landmark contribution to Holocaust literature and Suhl spent more than five years documenting it before it was published in 1967. His other works included "Eloquent Crusader: Ernestine Rose,” a biography of the Polish-born feminist, and two autobiographical novels: "One Foot in America" and "Cowboy on a Wooden Horse.” He was also a trustee of the fund set up for the sons of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. The illustrator, William Gropper (1897–1977), a cartoonist, painter, lithographer, and muralist; he grew up in the lower east side, and an aunt of his died in the triangle shirtwaist factory fire. He was a dedicated left wing political cartoonist for both English and Yiddish papers. During the second half of the 1930s, Gropper dedicated his art to the efforts to raise popular opposition to fascism in Europe. Following World War II, Gropper traveled to Poland to attend the inaugural convention of the World Congress of Intellectuals for Peace of 1948 in Wroclaw. This Yiddish childrens book was printed there, both for an audience of international anti-fascist partisans and survivors gathering to found the World Peace Council, as well as for those survivors living in Wroclaw, one of the largest post-war Jewish communities in Poland for a few years.

The CBF formed the Jewish Refugees Committee (JRC) as its case-working body and financed its activities. The purpose of this Committee was to assist Jewish refugees from Central Europe in the United Kingdom. The CBF also aided settlement in Palestine, and facilitated various emigration schemes. The CBF assumed a blanket guarantee vis-à-vis the British government that the refugees from Nazi oppression would not become a burden on public funds. When the number of refugees from Germany and Austria reached 60, 000 at the outbreak of World War II, the British government agreed to subsidize the work of the JRC.” (EJ 2007) Subjects: Political refugees.

Essays included: “Statelessness as a legal political problem” by P. Weis and “Statelessness as a consequence of the change of sovereignty over territory after the last war” by R. Graupner. Describing statelessness as a crisis that should be approached through an understanding of human rights, Weis examines the legal conditions and systems that perpetuate statelessness. His conclusion asserts, “As long as these conditions prevail, any reforms suggested, any remedies recommended can only cure the symptoms of the disease, not the disease itself.” (Weis, Page 26). Graupner suggests that “A reform of nationality law is called for as a major change in the post-war world, in order that every individual may have a nationality and statelessness may be eliminated. This demand is subject, however to this important reservation: every legal solution must also be a human solution. Abolition of statelessness can only be a humanely satisfactory remedy if nationality warrants the enjoyment of fundamental human rights by all nationals.” (Preface). Subjects: Statelessness.

Examination of post war policies enacted by the Potsdam Agreement regarding German speaking ethnic minority groups or “Volksdeutsche”.

The conclusions of the report are explicit in their characterization of Soviet post-war policy as anti-democratic. This anti-Soviet position, echoed in the later work of many committee members, was also supported by other left-leaning American advocacy organizations to promote a distance from Stalinism in the early Cold War period.

Translation of: "Endlösung der Judenfrage", Massenmord oder "Gaskammerlüge"? Translated from the German by Regina Lackner. An annotated collection of primary source materials culled from the Nuremberg trials: “I am convinced by your method of letting the texts and the statements of the murderers and their lackeys speak for themselves. The disregard for human life, the cynicism and brutality of these criminals beggars the imagination to such a degree that only the authenticity of such documents can convey the historical facts.” (Letter from Chancellor Helmut Schmidt to the author, 1979; printed on back cover). Frontispiece photograph depicts neo-nazis in Hamburg holding gas-chamber denial placards; one reason for the compilation of this volume is in response to the disturbing appearance of holocaust denial literature.

With laid in Addendum for several lots. Listings of 1, 045 lots, with illustrations for 1, 030 illustrations. The Mauerbach Benefit Sale of 1996 of thousands of artworks and objets d’art confiscated from Austrian Jews by the Nazis and kept in the custody of the Austrian government through the postwar years. These “remnants of Nazi seizures were found by U. S. Forces after the war and transferred to the Republic of Austria in 1952. The Austrian government made no effort to find the rightful owners of the objects until 1969, when, under pressure from the late Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal, who lived in Vienna, officials published a list of 8, 423 objects grouped into 1, 231 lots—657 oil paintings, 84 watercolors, and 250 pastels, as well as drawings, prints, sculptures, books, coins, and medals—in the possession of the Federal Office of Monuments. Wiesenthal bitterly called it a ‘gallery of tears. ’ Yet, though 543 claims were filed after the list’s publication in an obscure newspaper, a mere 33 paintings were returned. The deadline for claims was December 31, 1972. … In 1995 Austria transferred the remaining objects to the Federation of Jewish Communities of Austria (generally referred to as the Jewish Community), and in 1996 Christie’s auctioned them at the Mauerbach Benefit Sale, which took place at MAK. The proceeds, totaling $14.6 million, went to the Jewish Community and other representatives of Holocaust victims. The Mauerbach auction was a victory for the victims. An international committee cochaired by prominent businessmen and philanthropists Ronald Lauder, a former U. S. Ambassador to Austria, and Edgar Bronfman Sr., then president of the World Jewish Congress, oversaw the sale. Robert Liska, the Jewish Community vice president, said that the transfer of the artworks demonstrated ‘not awareness of collective guilt, but awareness of responsibility. ’ (‘The Mauerbach Scandal’ ArtNews, 2009; article details a recent art exhibit documenting the known provenance of certain of the works from the Mauerbach auction, revealing the willful failure of Austrian officials to return many of the works to their known owners in the post-war years.)

Based on this solemn covenant and confident that the civilized world, having fought a war for justice and right, will insist that that covenant be carried out to end the homelessness of the Jewish people, the Jewish women of America represented by Hadassah will continue their unremitting efforts to help recreate Palestine, the Jewish National Home as a democratic Jewish Commonweath.” (Page 32) The Anglo-American Committee was formed to address the many questions and obstacles of Jewish immigration into the British Mandate of Palestine in 1946.

  159. Jewish Agency For Palestine. RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED AT 22ND WORLD ZIONIST CONGRESS. Washington D. C.; Jewish Agency For Palestine, 1946. Staple bound leaves. 4to. 7 pages. 28 cm. Mimeographed report with single-sided pages. Report of resolutions adopted by the congress including information on immigration, “denunciation of ‘unathorized bodies’,” revisionist roles with in the congress, education, and budgetary concerns. “The Congress met in Basle on Dec. 9–24, 1946, after World War II and the Nazi Holocaust, which had exterminated most of European Jewry. The yishuv had participated in the British war effort and had waged an armed struggle against White Paper restrictions. The Revisionists had returned to the Zionist Organization and were represented at the Congress. The Biltmore Program (1942) on the establishment of Palestine as a Jewish commonwealth had been approved as the program of the Zionist movement at the first international Zionist conference after the war (New York, 1945). The Anglo-American commission of inquiry (1946) had recommended, inter alia, the abolition of a number of existing restrictions and the settlement of 100, 000 Jews in Palestine. The British government had refused to accept these recommendations, and the armed resistance of the yishuv had increased. Leaders of the yishuv and the Jewish Agency had been arrested (1946). The Morrison-Grady plan for the cantonization of Palestine and its division into four districts (Jewish, Arab, Jerusalem, and Negev) had been announced. The British had proposed a Jewish-Arab conference in London to reach an agreed solution, and the release of the imprisoned Jewish leaders as a preliminary to this conference. The Congress was therefore faced with the necessity of taking a stand on both the Morrison-Grady proposal and the London Conference. Weizmann stressed the importance of the decision on the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine and the sympathy with which Zionism and the aspirations of the yishuv were regarded by President Truman and American opinion. The Congress approved the political program of the Zionist Organization "to establish a Jewish commonwealth integrated into the world democratic structure,” turned down the plan for the cantonization of Palestine, and also resolved that "in existing circumstances, the Zionist movement is unable to participate in the London Conference.” Weizmann, who was opposed to this last resolution and favored participation in the London Conference, resigned from the presidency, and for the first time in the history of the Zionist Organization the Congress failed to elect a new president.” (EJ 2007) Subjects: Zionism.

Corrigenda slip laid in. “The memorandum which follows deals with the ‘Report of a Committee set up to consider certain correspondence between Sir Henry McMahon and the Sharif of Mecca in 1915 – 1916”, and with certain other White Papers issued in connection with the recent Palestine Conferences.” (Foreward) “Leonard Jacques Stein (1887–1973), barrister, author, and Zionist historian. Born in London, the son of a merchant, Stein was educated at St. Pauls and Oxford, where he was the first Jewish president of the Oxford Union, and was called to the bar in 1912. He was a captain in the British Army in World War I, after which he served as a political officer in the military administration in Palestine and as military governor of Safed. In 1920 Chaim Weizmann appointed him political secretary and legal adviser of the Zionist Organization, a position which he held from 1920 until 1929, when he left over a disagreement on the official policy of the Zionist leadership. In 1932 he returned to practicing law and achieved a reputation as a foremost expert on taxation. He continued to advise the Jewish Agency and drafted the Zionist case before the Palestine Royal Commission (1936) and the Woodhead Commission (1938; see Palestine, Inquiry Commissions). Stein's testimony before the Shaw Commission, which investigated the causes of the 1929 riots, was described by Weizmann as ‘the crowning glory of Stein's outstanding services to Zionism. ’ He was president of the Anglo-Jewish Association (1939–49) and exerted considerable influence on this body which had not been favorably disposed toward political Zionism, although Zionist circles felt that in the 1945–48 period his representations to the British government on behalf of the Anglo-Jewish associations were not always helpful to Zionist policy. Stein wrote extensively on Zionist history and compiled an anthology of official documents pertaining to Zionism and Israel, Promises and Afterthoughts, and, together with Leon Simon, edited Awakening Palestine (1923). His most outstanding book is the Balfour Declaration (1961), the most authoritative, documented, and detailed work on the subject, which revealed many facts previously unpublished. He also edited and published (together with Gedalia Yogew) The Letters and Papers of Chaim Weizmann (vol. 1, 1889–1902). Stein wrote a number of standard works on revenue law. He was a director of the Jewish Chronicle newspaper for 36 years; it established a lectureship in Medieval Hebrew at Oxford to mark his 80th birthday in 1967.” (EJ 2007) Subjects: Jews -- Palestine.

No. 12. “Reconstructionism and Zionism” by Ira Eisentein reprinted from “The Reconstructionist” Vol. VIII. No. 17. “An ardent Zionist, [Milton Steinberg] worked with the Zionist Organization of America and also with Hadassah. […] A student of Morris Raphael Cohen, Steinberg was concerned with a philosophical approach to Judaism. He dealt with issues such as the nature of God, His relation to humanity and history, the problem of evil, the confrontation of faith and reason, and so forth. While at the seminary, the most profound influence on Steinberg was Mordecai M. Kaplan. Steinberg was early identified with Kaplan's Reconstructionist movement and was one of the founders of its publication. For a year he was managing editor of The Reconstructionist (1937), and in the 1940s helped edit the Reconstructionist Sabbath Prayer Book (1945) that was widely criticized in traditional circles for its abandonment of the chosen people concept and the sacrificial order.” (EJ 2007) “Eisenstein advocated for the creation of institutions that could embody Reconstructionist ideas.

London; Central Office Of The Zionist Organization, 1934. Original Wrappers. 8vo. 56 pages. 22cm. First edition. “This Congress, held in Prague on Aug. 21–Sept. 4, 1933, bore the imprint of three events: the advent of the Nazis to power in Germany and growing persecution of German Jewry, economic inflation in Palestine, and the assassination of Arlosoroff. The conflict between the Revisionists and labor reached its height, since the labor representatives believed that the constant incitement by the Revisionists had created the setting for Arlosoroff's assassination. It was finally decided to establish a committee of inquiry into the tragedy. A special session was devoted to the celebration of Ussishkin's 70th birthday. Sokolow was reelected president of the Zionist Organization. The representation of labor on the Executive increased and included Ben-Gurion and Moshe Shertok, who succeeded Arlosoroff as head of the Political Department.” (EJ 2007) Subjects: Zionism -- Congresses.

  173. World Zionist Congress. MEMORANDUM TO DELEGATES TO THE TWENTY-FIRST WORLD ZIONIST CONGRESS. Geneva; World Zionist Congress, 1939. Original Wrappers. 8vo. 13 pages. 23 cm. First edition. Memorandum describing important issues to be discussed at the 1939 congress. “It is the purpose of this memorandum to discuss briefly the main political issues which must be settled by the Congress. These issues are as follows: 1) Leadership: Should Weizmann continue or be replaced in the Presidency of the World Zionist Organization? 2) England: Should Zionist resistance to the White Paper go beyond “non-cooperation?” 3) Arabs: Should the policy of havlaga be modified? In what direction?” (Page 1). “Held in Geneva on Aug. 16–26, 1939, the 21st Congress met on the eve of World War II. The British government had withdrawn its partition plan, conferred with representatives of Jews and Arabs (including Arab governments) at the St. James Conference in London, and published its anti-Zionist White Paper imposing tremendous restrictions on Jewish immigration and purchase of land. The delegates unanimously expressed their strong opposition to the White Paper and declared the readiness of the yishuv to fight against the restrictions. Katznelson extolled the "illegal" immigration program and called for all the energies of the Zionist movement to be channeled into extending its scope, in view of the threatening political situation in Europe. In the atmosphere of impending war the Executive was reelected for another term. Weizmann closed the Congress with the emotion-filled statement: "I have no prayer but this; that we will all meet again alive.” Ussishkin, the president of the Congress, expressed his grave concern for the fate of Polish Jewry.” (EJ 2007) Subjects: Zionist Congress (21st 1939 Geneva, Switzerland).

A report of the political resolutions agreed upon at the first World Zionist Conference to convene in the wartime period. “The World Zionist Conference which met in London in August, 1945, was the first opportunity since 1939 for Zionists from various parts of the world to meet and take counsel together. The delegations told the story of the disaster which has overwhelmed the Jewish people. Yet they demonstrated that in every land the movement still lives. Almost every European country was represented and some delegates were themselves leaders of the resistance movements in which Zionists played an heroic part. Two of the delegates were serving members of the Jewish Brigade Group and attended the Conference by special permission of the War Office.” (Page 3) A news report of the event describes, the organization’s president, Dr. Chaim Weizmann’s resolve and the political tenor of the conference: “The Zionists will not swerve and will not depart from the original aim of developing Palestine into a Jewish State as intended by the Balfour Declaration, Dr. Weizmann stated. He demanded that the new British Government take definite steps ‘at the present historic juncture’ to implement the Declaration's original purpose. ‘We do not claim in Palestine what belongs to others, ’ he said. ‘But we want an opportunity to create new things. Important development schemes are ready, but their execution depends on new political dispensations. ’” ("Weizmann Opens World Zionist Conference; Appeals to Britain and Allies for Jewish State.” Jewish Telegraphic Agency 2 Aug 1945.)

First edition of the only Zola work ever published in Ladino (Judeo-Spanish), and thus the only work of his which would have reached this large Medierranean Jewish population in their primary language. Emile Zola wrote Nantas in 1878 when he was 38 years old and his career as a writer was already well established as the leader of the Naturalist movement in literature. In Nantas, a young man full of ambition tries to find a place in society, and we can see the themes important to the realist and naturalist writers of the time: the power relations that govern social organization in the nineteenth century, the role of money in the relationships between people, the appetite for power, the hypocrisy in human relations, etc. These are, of course, the same issues that Zola spoke out against in the context of the Dreyfus affair.

"The English translation of Dr. Bloch's German work 'Israel und die völker' was translated by Dr. Leon Kellner and revised by Mr. Harry Schneidermann.” Israel and the Nations is a compendium of apologetics based on the evidence of the experts in connection with the Rohling trial. The author’s primary goal was to put together all the arguments of Jew-baiting based upon religion and religious writings, all the slanders circulated against the Talmud, the Shulchan Aruch, and other literary monuments of Judaism, all the innumerable textual falsifications, perpetrated against them, and to explain their nature and origin. Written by Joseph Samuel Bloch (1850–1923), “rabbi, publicist, and politician in Austria. He acquired distinction for his defense of Judaism against the blood libel and was praised by Adolf Jellinek as the ‘Hercules of the antisemitic Augean stables. ’ … During the Tisza-Eszlár blood libel trial in 1883, when August Rohling undertook to attest on oath that Jews practiced ritual murder, Bloch attacked him in the press. He challenged Rohling's competence as a scholar, accused him of lying, and offered him 3, 000 florins for translating a random page of the Talmud. Rohling was forced to sue Bloch for libel, but after two years' investigations withdrew his action 13 days before the trial was due to open. … In 1884 he founded a weekly, Dr. Blochs Oesterreichische Wochenschrift, for combating antisemitism, which existed until after World War I, and also established the Oesterreichisch-Israelitische Union (from 1921: Union deutsch-oesterreichischer Juden). … He published a compendium of apologetics, Israel und die Voelker (1922; Israel and the Nations, 1927), based on the evidence of the experts in connection with the Rohling trial.” (EJ 2008).

An “Anthology of writings by Jewish thinkers on Jews as a race. Jews were famously the targets of racial thinking in modern times, but they also engaged in it. Many Jews used the methods of racial science to analyze Jewish history and contemporary life. Such discourse was in part apologetic, a response to racial antisemitism; however, it also served other political and ideological needs. Focusing primarily on works written at the height of the racial hygiene and eugenics movements, this diverse anthology shows how Jewish scholars and popular writers in Europe, North America, and Palestine raised fascinating and thorny issues about the nature and history of racial discourse. Designed for class adoption, the volume contains helpful annotations and a contextual introduction by the editor.” (Publishers description).

Largely forgotten is his side career as a publisher of antisemitic propaganda. This is the story of Ford's ownership of the Dearborn Independent, his involvement in the defamatory articles it ran, and the two Jewish lawyers, Aaron Sapiro and Louis Marshall, who each tried to stop Ford's war. In 1927, the case of Sapiro v. Ford transfixed the nation. In order to end the embarrassing litigation, Ford apologized for the one thing he would never have lost on in court: the offense of hate speech. Using never-before-discovered evidence from archives and private family collections, this study reveals the depth of Ford's involvement in every aspect of this case and explains why Jewish civil rights lawyers and religious leaders were deeply divided over how to handle Ford"-Provided by publisher.

"Nuremberg - a city associated with Nazi excesses, party rallies, and the extreme anti-Semitic propaganda published by Hitler ally Julius Streicher - has struggled since the Second World War to come to terms with the material and moral legacies of Nazism. Haunted City explores how the Nuremberg community has confronted the implications of the genocide in which it participated, while also dealing with the appalling suffering of ordinary German citizens during and after the war. Neil Gregor's compelling account of the painful process of remembering and acknowledging the Holocaust offers new insights into postwar memory in Germany and how it has operated. Gregor takes a novel approach to the theme of memory, commemoration, and remembrance, and he proposes a highly nuanced explanation for the failure of Germans to face up to the Holocaust for years after the war. His book makes a major contribution to the social and cultural history of Germany.” (Dust jacket). Subjects: National socialism --Psychological aspects. Collective memory -- Germany -- Nuremberg.

First edition. In French. Title translates as “The League of Nations and the Oppression of Jews in Germany; A Legal Study.” A report regarding the presentation of the Bernheim Petition to the 73rd council session of the League of Nations, and an examination of anti-Jewish Nazi legislation. “Bernheim petition against Nazi anti-Jewish legislation, signed by Franz Bernheim on the initiative of Emil Margulies and submitted to the League of Nations on May 17, 1933, by representatives of the Comité des Délégations Juives (Leo Motzkin, Emil Margulies, and Nathan Feinberg). At the same time they presented to the League a similar petition signed by the Comité, the American Jewish Congress, and other Jewish institutions. Since there was a special procedure regarding petitions addressed by inhabitants of German Upper Silesia, Bernheim's petition alone was immediately considered by the League. When the Nazis came to power, Bernheim, a warehouse employee in Upper Silesia, was dismissed from work as a result of racial discrimination, and took up temporary residence in Prague. In his petition he complained that the anti-Jewish legislation of the Third Reich was also being applied to Upper Silesia, in violation of the German-Polish Convention of May 15, 1922 (Geneva Convention), which guaranteed all minorities in Upper Silesia equal civil and political rights. The petition requested the League to state that all the anti-Jewish measures, if and when applied in Upper Silesia, infringed upon the Geneva Convention and were therefore null and void, and that the rights of Upper Silesian Jews be reinstated and that they receive compensation for damages. Bernheim's petition was placed on the agenda of the 73rd session of the League Council on May 22, 1933. The German representative, von Keller, lodged an objection denying Bernheim's right to submit the complaint, a plea that was rejected by an ad hoc committee of jurists. Four days later von Keller declared in the name of his government that internal German legislation did not in any way affect the General Convention and that if its provisions had been violated, this could only have been due to errors and misconstructions on the part of subordinate officials. The purpose of this public apology was to prevent a general debate on the petition, but these tactics failed, and in two public sessions (May 30 and June 6) the persecution of Jews in Germany was fully discussed. Many of the speakers severely censured Germany for the treatment of its Jews and demanded that they be accorded minimum human rights. In a unanimous decision, Germany and Italy abstaining, the Council adopted a resolution noting the German government's declaration and requesting it to furnish the Council with information on further developments. On September 30, 1933, the German government submitted a letter in which it claimed to have fulfilled its obligations, and that the rights of the Jews of Upper Silesia had been restored. The main objective of the Comité des Délégations Juives in bringing the petitions before the League was to focus world attention on the anti-Jewish legislation of Nazi Germany and the persecution of its Jews, and to have it condemned. The discussions in the League Council, and especially the declaration of the German government, helped the Jews of Upper Silesia in their struggle for their rights before such local bodies as the Mixed Commission established under the Geneva Convention. Until the expiration of the Convention on July 15, 1937, the Jews of Upper Silesia continued to enjoy equality of rights, and even shehitah, forbidden in the Third Reich, was permitted them.” (EJ 2008) Subjects: Jews -- Persecutions.

Holocaust-era report outlining the programs employed by the American Jewish Committee in opposing antisemitism. Descriptions of the AJC’s media outreach, legal and investigative activities, scientific research, and community service. The American Jewish Committee is the “oldest Jewish defense organization in the United States, established in 1906 ‘to prevent the infraction of the civil and religious rights of Jews, in any part of the world. ’ […] The rise of Nazism led to intensified activities on two fronts. […] The Committee fought the alarmingly sharp rise in organized antisemitism in America, with an emphasis on education and "prejudice-reduction" programs. In developing new techniques both to measure and to influence general and Jewish opinion, the Committee discarded the traditionally apologetic Jewish reaction to antisemitism and asserted and demonstrated that antisemitism is a device to undermine the foundations of democratic society. The Committee also investigated the operations of the virulent hate groups and disclosed their connections with the Nazi regime. The AJC pioneered an approach to combating antisemitism in the communities, using as a model the idea that every Jewish community in the U. S. A. Needed to have a "volunteer fire brigade" countering antisemitism.” (EJ 2007) Subjects: Antisemitism. American Jewish Committee. OCLC lists 3 copies worldwide. (NYPL, Hartford Seminary, HUC).

Presented March 17, 2004. “In the decade and a half following the end of World War II, that global conflagration which brought about the death of one-third of the Jewish people and the destruction of much of European Jewish communal life, American Jewry found many times, places, and modes of expression to articulate its intense reactions to that calamity. While historians may find it difficult, if not nearly impossible, to recreate the ways in which individual Jews talked about this catastrophic event in their homes or how they incorporated direct references and analogies to it into the discourse of their private spheres of everyday life, Jewish institutions – synagogues, schools, summer camps, publishing houses, magazines and newspapers – left an easily recoverable paper trail that reveals a community that felt itself obliged to remember and commemorate. These formal institutions of American Jewish life, spanning a spectrum of ideologies and political positions vis-à-vis the concerns of the day, wove the details of the catastrophe into their rhetorical repertoires and used references to it to shape their political projects.” (Page 1).

Translation of L'antisémitisme a-t-il des racines chrétiennes. Originally a lecture delivered at the Sorbonne on Dec. 15, 1959, entitled Du redressement nécessaire de l'enseignement chrétien concernant Israël. Translated by Dorothy and James Parkes. This lecture was published in France in 1960 by Fasquelle as a 74 page length book; published first in London by the Council of Christians and Jews in 1960; published in New York in 1961 by the National Conference of Christians and Jews, as a 95 page, 18 cm book under the title “Has anti-Semitism roots in Christianity? ”. This booklet contains a biography of Jules Isaac, as well as a descriptive bibliography of his works. Includes major sections of the lecture, and various appendices, offering an excellent overview to the research of Jules Isaac. Jules Marx Isaac (1877–1963), “French historian. Born in Rennes, he became chief inspector of history teaching at the Ministry of Education. Isaac wrote history textbooks for French secondary schools; his research works concerned the origins of World War I and the problem of the origins of superstitions and popular prejudices. From 1943, traumatically influenced by the Nazi persecutions and the deportation and death of his close relatives, including his wife and daughter, Isaac began to study Christian antisemitism, to which he dedicated the remainder of his life. He did not content himself with the publication of the result of his studies and vigorous polemics against his critics, but also assumed a militant role as founder and member of the executive committee of the Amitié Judéo-Chrétienne. He took an active part in the Judeo-Christian meeting of Seelisberg (1947), whose resolutions called for a revision of the attitude of the churches toward Judaism. After the accession of Pope John XXIII, the Vatican sought Isaac's advice; upon the request of Cardinal Bea and after an audience with Pope John in 1960, he drew up a record of the history of the relations between the Catholic Church and Judaism. Isaac's writings had a great influence on the decision to introduce a statement on relations with the Jews at the Vatican Council that ended in 1965. In his historical works, Isaac points out the falsehood and the tendentious intentions of the claim that the dispersion of Israel was the result of its rejection of the messianism of Jesus. At the same time, he reached the conclusion that there was no reason whatsoever to maintain that antisemitism was as old as Judaism itself. On the contrary, he showed that the Church promoted a system of degradation by gradually burdening the Jews with a lengthy series of restrictions, exclusions, and humiliations which were decreed by the secular governments subjected to ecclesiastic influence. This system was based on the ‘teaching of contempt, ’ which was essentially the work of the Church Fathers of the fourth century C. E. And whose most harmful thesis was that of describing the Jews as a ‘deicidal people. ’ Isaac developed his arguments in Jésus et Israël (1948; Eng. Tr., 1971), Genèse de l'antisémitisme (1956), and L'Enseignement du mépris (1962; The Teaching of Contempt, 1964).” (EJ 2007) Subjects: Christianity and other religions - Judaism. Antisemitism.

The author spent many years in Germany, and his subject is mainly devoted to the religious views and organizational transition of sections of German Christianity. The author, owing to his allegiance to german protestant theologians, ends up admitting to a sincere respect for Hitler, minus his “monomania”, which, according to the author, is too excessively channeled into anti-semitism, a product of the German environment.

Volume 121 (Vierte Folge/ 29. Band), Erstes Halbjahresheft, 1941. Verlag Von Kirchheim, Mainz, 1941. Paper wrappers, 8vo, 164 pages (partly uncut). In German. Nazi period German Catholic journal on Cannon Law. Lead Essay is: Peter Browe “Die kirchenrechtliche Stellung der getauften Juden” (“The canonical status of baptized Jews”). In this article, Browe discusses the situation of the Marranos in Spain and Portugal during and after the inquisition, listing Popes who supported the idea that coverted Jews were full Catholics. The decision to write and publish this article in Germany in 1941 is clearly a retort to Hitler and the Nazis who saw Jewish conversion as irrelevant to racial purity and little more than a sham used by Jews to infiltrate German society. Tellingly, any reference to Jews in the modern period or in Germany is carefully avoided in the article. Also includes: Konrad Lübeck “Der `Diözesanbischof’ des Klosters Fulda,” and Nikolaus Hilling “Die deutsche Nationalstiftung S. Maria dell’Anima in Rom und das Kirchenrecht,” as well as shorter articles from Hilling, Haring and Hofmeister and various clerical edicts. The `Archiv Für Kirchenrecht´ began publication in 1856 in two parts per year and is the oldest professional periodical of ecclesiastical law worldwide. Nikolaus Hilling (Born 1871-1960) was vicar and professor of clerical law, he dedicated most of his time to the ARCHIV, which he took over in 1913 until his death. He was able to take the publication through 2 World Wars and contributed most of their content. “Begründet von Ernst Freiherrn von Moy de Sons. Fortgesetzt von Friedrich H.

  327. Brenner, David A. GERMAN-JEWISH POPULAR CULTURE BEFORE THE HOLOCAUST: KAFKA'S KITSCH. London, New York; Routledge, 2008. Publishers Boards. 8vo. 118pages. 24cm. First edition. Using modern social theory, David Brenner examines how German-Jewish identity was influenced by the production and consumption of popular culture. Part of the “Routledge Jewish Studies Series.” “David A. Brenner examines how Jews in Central Europe developed one of the first ‘ethnic’ or ‘minority’ cultures in modernity. Not exclusively ‘German’ or ‘Jewish, ’ the experiences of German-speaking Jewry in the decades prior to the Third Reich and the Holocaust were also negotiated in encounters with popular culture, particularly the novel, the drama and mass media. Despite recent scholarship, the misconception persists that Jewish Germans were bent on assimilation. Although subject to compulsion, they did not become solely ‘German, ’ much less ‘European. ’ Yet their behavior and values were by no means exclusively ‘Jewish, ’ as the Nazis or other anti-Semites would have it. Rather, the German Jews achieved a peculiar synthesis between 1890 and 1933, developing a culture that was not only ‘middle-class’ but also ‘ethnic. ’ In particular, they reinvented Judaic traditions by way of a hybridized culture. Based on research in German, Israeli and American archives, German-Jewish Popular Culture before the Holocaust addresses many of the genres in which a specifically German-Jewish identity was performed, from the Yiddish theatre and Zionist humour all the way to sensationalist memoirs and Kafka’s own kitsch. This middle-class ethnic identity encompassed and went beyond religious confession and identity politics. In focusing principally on German-Jewish popular culture, this groundbreaking book introduces the beginnings of ‘ethnicity’ as we know it and live it today.” (Publisher’s description.)

A somber report outlining the year 1938, which “brought catastrophic changes in the dimensions of the problem” (Page 5) for German Jewry. Describes the successes and obstacles faced by the council regarding the resettlement and employment of refugees. “Following the promulgation of the Nuremberg Laws in Germany in September 1935, Jewish leaders in Britain sought a far-reaching and unprecedented solution to the plight of German Jewry. Zionists and non-Zionists there bridged their ideological differences to formulate a plan, in close consultation with German Jewish leaders, for the emigration of most of German Jewry in four years. The collaboration of American Jewry and of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, essential for the plan’s success, was solicited. Months of negotiations resulted in the creation of the Council for German Jewry, with the task of coordinating implementation of a modified version of the British plan.” (Silberklang, "Jewish Politics and Rescue: The Founding of the Council for German Jewry.

The author also published in 1955 a Yiddish volume concerning the ‘Remilitarization of West Germany and the Role of Hitler’s Generals’. Written by Artur Eisenbach (1906–1992), a “Polish Jewish historian. Artur Eisenbach was one of the last representatives of a distinguished group of scholars who, in the years before World War I and in independent Poland between 1918 and 1939, laid the foundation for an investigation of the Polish Jewish past. … He was influenced primarily by the Marxist school of Jewish historians, in particular by Raphael Mahler and Emanuel Ringelblum (whose sister he married). Eisenbach was an active member of the Yunger Historiker Krayz (Young Historians Circle) founded by Mahler and Ringelblum. Eisenbach spent World War II in the Soviet Union, but his wife and child were trapped in Buczacz, where they were murdered by the Nazis in 1942. After his return to Poland in May 1946, he worked at the Central Historical Commission of the Central Committee of Polish Jews. When the Jewish Historical Institute was established later that year, he was appointed head of its archives, and subsequently became a researcher. In the decade following the war, Eisenbach devoted himself entirely to studying the Holocaust. Later he gradually returned to the theme that he had devoted himself to before the war—Jewish emancipation in the first half of the nineteenth century. In 1966, he became a member of the Committee for the Historical Sciences at the Polish Academy of Sciences and was awarded the title of professor. In the same year, he was appointed director of the Jewish Historical Institute. In 1968, Eisenbach was forced to resign his latter position, and retained only his title at the Polish Academy of Sciences. He decided not to emigrate and in the following years produced a series of monographs on Polish Jewish problems in the first half of the nineteenth century, research that formed the essential basis for future work on this subject. He also continued to work on Holocaust themes, editing Ringelblum’s diary and essay on Polish–Jewish relations. In his last years, he moved to Israel, where he had a nephew and where, active as ever, he worked on an account of Polish–Jewish relations in the nineteenth century.” (Yivo Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe).

XIII, 183 pages. 22 cm. First edition. “The Double Binds of Ethics after the Holocaust sheds new light on the ethical repercussions of the Nazi genocide against the Jews. Contributors focus on two key dilemmas: first, that the Holocaust did immense harm to ethics by undermining confidence in beliefs about the fundamental status of ethical values, including human rights. Second, the Holocaust and subsequent genocides have destroyed confidence that human beings will fulfill their moral obligations better ‘next time. ’ Responding to these double binds, the contributors to this book explore what can be done in ethical theory and practice to respond effectively to the impact of the Holocaust and genocide. Its chapters not only assess the weakness of ethics in standing firmly and effectively against human-made destruction but also indicate steps of salvage and retrieval that need to be taken if ethics is to be a significant presence in a world still besieged by genocide and atrocity.” (Publishers description) Contents: Part 1: Engaging the Double Binds: 'Double Binds: Ethics after Auschwitz'; J.

In 1919, Isserman completed the requirements for a bachelor's degree from the University of Cincinnati and three years later (June 1922) he was ordained a rabbi. While in school, Isserman participated in various extra-curricular activities. He was on both the University of Cincinnati and the HUC basketball teams (lettering in basketball at the University of Cincinnati), he served as president of the HUC Literary Society in 1920-1921, and in 1921-1922 he was president of the HUC student body. Upon ordination, Isserman became Assistant Rabbi under Rev. Dr. Harry W. Ettelson at Rodeph Shalom Congregation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He remained in this position for three years, during which he studied at the University of Pennsylvania, receiving a Master of Arts degree in comparative religion in 1924. In 1925, Isserman assumed the position of rabbi of the Toronto Hebrew Congregation (‘Holy Blossom’) in Canada. In Toronto, Isserman distinguished himself by arranging Canada's first pulpit exchange between a Christian minister and a Jewish rabbi. In 1929, Isserman became rabbi of Temple Israel in St. Louis, Missouri, where he remained through 1963. Isserman visited Nazi Germany three times (in 1933, 1935 and 1937) and participated in many civic as well as Jewish oriented organizations. Some of his more prominent activities included: conducting weekly Jewish programs on local radio stations (1932-1963), holding an annual Institute on Judaism for the Christian Clergy at Temple Israel (1937-1962), serving as president of the University of Missouri Jewish Student Foundation (1940-1947), spending one year overseas during World War II with the American Red Cross (1943), serving as first president of the combined Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion Alumni Association (1950-1951), chairing both the American Jewish Tercentenary Committee of St. Louis and the American Jewish Tercentenary Committee of Missouri (1954), serving as the American chairman of the World Union for Progressive Judaism (1955-1956), and chairing the Thomas C. Hennings Jr. Memorial Committee (1960). Rabbi Isserman's participation in the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR) deserves special note. He was very active with the CCAR's Commission on Justice and Peace from 1942 through 1950, serving as chairman from 1942 through 1945. In 1942, Isserman helped organize and presided over the Commission's American Institute on Judaism and A Just and Enduring Peace, in 1945 he organized the Commission's Institute on Judaism and Race Relations, and in 1950 he helped organize the CCAR's Institute on Reform Jewish Theology Today. Isserman died in March, 1972.” (American Jewish Archives; A Finding Aid to the Ferdinand M. Isserman Papers) Subjects: Jews - Persecutions – Germany. Great condition.

Illustrated. First edition. Inscribed by author Helen Mitsios. “Photo Album” appendix contains black and white photographs and reproductions of documents. “Filled with insight and humor, this dual memoir by Rasia, born in Vilnius, Lithuania (who survived the Holocaust on a false identity), and her daughter Helen, born in Montreal, Canada, examines the long-term implications of being a survivor of the Holocaust and the unique pressures and anxieties the children of survivors inherit from their parents. Rasia, determined to protect Helen from anti-Semitism, continues to pose as a Christian and raises her daughter in the Catholic faith, forbidding her from mentioning her Jewish identity. This compassionate memoir addresses the unspoken tension that complicated a mother-daughter relationship, follows Helen on her journey to embrace Judaism, and is a heart-stopping story of escape and survival from Nazi terror.” (Publisher’s description).

Azrieli series of Holocaust survivor memoirs; Series II. “Fred Mann’s compelling story is at once a nerve-wracking account of his family’s efforts to stay one step ahead of the Nazi death machinery and the captivating story of a boy’s rapid entry into manhood. His account is rooted in rich details of daily life in Leipzig and Berlin under the Third Reich. With the rise of the Nazis, Fred recalls in the most personal of terms the tightening net of persecution that gradually made life in Germany intolerable for its Jews and forced his family to flee. Using the biblical theme of Exodus to give shape to his story, he traces his family’s exile through Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Jamaica and finally to a new home in Canada. A tale of truly epic proportions, at once tragic and hopeful, it is also a story of the profound resilience of youth, of a boy who found himself taking on adult responsibilities while at the same time wrestling with his newfound attraction to girls. Though he is proud of his maverick spirit and his ability to aid his family in a time of desperate need, Fred Mann’s story is also a lament for a lost childhood, a lament for having to grow up too fast.” (Publishers description) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) - Germany.

Azrieli series of Holocaust survivor memoirs; Series II. “The son of a diamond merchant in Antwerp’s famous diamond exchange, Paul-Henri Rips was ten years old when the Nazis invaded Belgium in May 1940 and ended what he calls his ‘golden childhood’ forever. He imbues his fascinating memoir with his child’s-eye perceptions of the events unfolding around him and the diverse cast of characters who inhabited Belgium and France during the Nazi occupation. Unflinchingly describing Nazi and Flemish perpetrators of antisemitic violence, Paul-Henri also brings to life resistance fighters, collaborators, black marketeers, soldiers, Christian nuns and priests, Roma and ordinary Belgian and French citizens. Drawing upon childhood references to make sense of what was happening to him, and delving into events and geographic areas often neglected in Holocaust research, his account is a unique combination of place, time and perspective. Ultimately, what Paul-Henri Rips carries away with him from his harrowing experiences are two admonitions from his father: ‘A klapt vargayt, a wort bestayt’ (A blow will go away again, but a word lasts forever) and ‘Sei a mensch’ (Be a decent human being). His story is a testament to his father’s belief in the importance of holding on to one’s own humanity in the face of unfathomable inhumanity.” (Publishers description).

This book is a study of the determined efforts of the Jews of Europe to conform to the patterns and norms of Halakhic Judaism during the Holocaust period. It is based in large part on rabbinic responsa written in Germany, Hungary, Poland, and Lithuania from the beginning of the Nazi regime in 1933, until the liberation of the concentration camps in 1945. Included are rabbinic rulings from the ghettos, labor camps, and death camps of the Holocaust. These responsa treat such subjects as the justifiability of suicide, murder, and abortion under the conditions obtaining at the time. They also discuss the observance of Passover, Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah, and even Purim in the ghetto of Kovno and the Auschwitz death camp. Indeed, the range of subjects covered is as broad as the spectrum of the Halakhah itself. Moreover, the factual circumstances out of which each question arose are cited, and a summary of the legal arguments leading to the decision in the responsa are included. Holocaust and Halakhah also incorporates eyewitness and documentary material concerning the obdurate and heroic Jewish adherence to the study of Torah and the practice of mitzvot during the Holocaust.

  387. Young, James E. THE CHANGING SHAPE OF HOLOCAUST MEMORY. New York: American Jewish Committee, 1995. Original Wrappers. 8vo. Vi, 49 pages. 22 cm. First edition. Six color graphs describing survey data relating to public opinion and knowledge about the Holocaust. An essay by James Young concerning popular opinion and knowledge of the Holocaust based on the findings of a series of surveys by The American Jewish Committee starting in 1992 and continuing after the publication of this essay. The topics contained within the survey questions include Holocaust literature, specific Holocaust history and Holocaust Memorial sites. “James E. Young is Professor of English and Judaic Studies, and Chair, Judaic Studies Department, University of Massachusetts, Amherst.” (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, ushmm.org) “Young's scholarly work focuses on historical memory and memorialization, and in particular the aesthetics and politics of Holocaust memorials, on which he is a recognized authority. Young's insight that ‘the motives of memory are never pure’ informs his examination of the ways in which contemporary political commitments and exigencies shape what is remembered and how it is memorialized, and how a memorial may become part of a reductive political mythology. He proposes that the ‘countermonument’ – a work of art that interrogates and undermines intended, official meaning – is the best guarantor that viewers will experience a more genuine sense of historical memory not entirely mediated by a heroic or redemptive national narrative.” (EJ 2007) Subjects: Holocaust Memorials.
