  1. Benedict, Libby (Managing editor). PRESS RELEASES OF THE INDEPENDENT JEWISH PRESS SERVICE, INC OCTOBER-DECEMBER, 1941. The Independent Jewish Press Service, Inc, New York, 1941. 1st Edition. Original Stapled Wrappers. Folio. 161 Issues between October 3rd and December 30th, [about 864 pages]; 36 cm. Of tremendous historical importance. These 161 American press releases from before and after US involvement in World War II contain detailed day-to-day reporting on the ongoing Holocaust atrocities and were distributed in America. A November 17th 1941 article entitled, “Polish Jews Advertise Own Execution” describes a gruesome scene in the Fort VII concentration camp. “Having been forced to wear large posters on their backs with the following notice in German… ‘I shall be hung tomorrow at eleven o’clock’ three Jews were hanged in by the Nazis in Poznan… one… for having stolen a piece of bread, the other two for illegally possessing honey…. Their execution was watched by all the Jews from the camp gathered at the athletic stadium of Poznan. ” Dozen of reports like this one throughout. Titles include, “Nazis Plan to Mobilize Jews for War, “800,000 Jews in Hungary, ” “95 Jewish Hostages Slain, 5 Others Reprieved, ” “70,000 More Jews For Warsaw Ghetto, ” “Nazis Distribute Anti-Jewish Placards in Ukrainia, ” “Hitler ‘Black Book’ To Blame Jews for US Axis War, ” “Mass Arrests of Rumanian Jews, ” “Nazi Paper Demands Abolition of Riga Ghetto, ” ““Reports 7,000 Jewish Businesses ‘Liquidated. ’ In Slovakia, ” “More Jewish Girls Abducted and Forced into Prostitution, ” “Nazis to Enlarge Lemberg (Lwow) Ghetto, ” and “Slovak Jews Can’t Use Phones. ” Other reports detail stories of Jewish resistance. One resistance article tells an almost midrashic story about Gestapo who raid a Jewish home and find a notebook. They turn to the first page and read, “‘God preserve Adolf Hitler’” Astonished, one of the Gestapo said: What a strange Jew! So patriotic despite all persecution…’ He turned the page… ‘God preserve Joseph Goebbels…’ Looked at page 3, which said, ‘God preserve Heinrich Himmler…’ We must make this fellow an Honorary Aryan, the Gestapo burst out in unison. Then they turned to page 5. On it was written: ‘God Preserve Ernst Roehm…’ below this was the penciled note: ‘Preserved – June 30th, 1934.” Other resistance titles include, “Jewish Workers Wrecked Homes Nazis Hoped to Occupy, ” and “Mein Kampf Burned on Pulpit. ” The releases also include many many contemporary reports on American Jewish Culture, Palestinian Settlement, and refugee resettlement in Palestine, the US, and Latin America, including habitual updates on Ships of Jewish refugees landing and being turned away from the Americas. Releases also include Pearl Harbor Attack, and the first month of US Involvement in World War II including articles on Jewish Soldiers relieving the duties of Non-Jewish soldiers. Other titles on this topic include “Former Pacifist, Albert Einstein Says, ‘Strike Hard, ’” and “Gun for Greenberg, ” on Hank Greenberg’s decision to enlist. Lastly, includes several original printings of articles by very notable Americans including the first appearance of “The Jew Needs Normality” by Dorothy Thompson. OCLC lists no holdings anywhere.

NAZI MASSACRES OF THE JEWS & OTHERS: SOME PRACTICAL PROPOSALS FOR IMMEDIATE RESCUE MADE BY THE ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY AND LORD ROCHESTER IN SPEECHES ON MARCH 23RD 1943 IN THE HOUSE OF LORDS. London: Victor Gollancz, 1943. 1st Edition. Original Paper Wrappers. 8vo. [16] pages; 19 cm. In English. In this historic speech, Temple concludes, “My chief protest is against procrastination of any kind… The Jews are being slaughtered at the rate of tens of thousands a day on many days. We know that what we can do is small compared with the magnitude of the problem, but we cannot rest so long as there is any sense among us that we are not doing all that might be done. We have discussed the matter on the footing we are not responsible for this great evil… but it is always true that the obligations of decent men are decided for them by contingencies which they did not themselves create… We stand at the bar of history, of humanity, and of God. ” Holocaust-era speeches by the Archbishop of Canterbury and Lord Rochester made to the House of Lords outlining ongoing atrocities and calling for the British government to approach the problem of resettling Jewish refugees with more urgency. “William Temple (1881–1944) was a bishop in the Church of England. He served as Bishop of Manchester (1921–29), Archbishop of York (1929–42) and Archbishop of Canterbury (1942–44). A renowned teacher and preacher, Temple is perhaps best known for his 1942 book Christianity and Social Order, which set out an Anglican social theology and a vision for what would constitute a just post-war society…. Against the background of persecution of Jewish people during World War II, Temple jointly founded with Chief Rabbi Joseph Hertz the Council of Christians and Jews (CCJ) to combat anti-Semitism and other forms of prejudice in Britain. In March 1943, Temple addressed the House of Lords, urging action to be taken on the atrocities being carried out by Nazi Germany. ” (Wikipedia, 2016) SUBJECT(S): Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945).

    The First Demand for Nazi Reparations to the Jews

     

  11. Moses, Siegfried. DIE JÜDISCHEN NACHKRIEGS-FORDERUNGEN [Tel Aviv]: Irgun Olej Merkaz Europa, 1944. 1st edition. Original paper wrappers, tall 12mo, 69 pages. 22 cm. In German. The first separate publication of a demand for Nazi reparations to the Jews. In July 1943, long before the war ended, Siegfried Moses coined the term “reparations” in relation to claims of Jewish citizens against the German state. He published an article on the restitution demands of Jews in the bulletin of the "Irgun Olej Merkaz Europa", Tel Aviv; they publish here those proposals as a separate work. For the first time, Moses proposed that a State can commit an injustice, for which it must then compensate the civilian population which suffered under that injustice. This legal opinion was later the basis for reparations by the Federal Republic of Germany. Siegfried Moses (1887-1974) was a German-Israeli lawyer and the first state comptroller Israel. After the Nazi seizure of power, he helped German Jews transfer assets to Palestine. From 1933 on he was also chairman of the Zionist Federation of Germany (ZVfD) and Vice President of the Reich Association of German Jews. In 1937 Moses himself fled to Palestine; then in 1941 he wrote (together with fellow German emigre Walter Schwarz) the text of the 1941 Palestinian Income Tax Act. In 1947 Moses was a member of the delegation of the Jewish Agency at the United Nations and in 1949, he became the first state comptroller Israel (Chief of Court). In 1956-1957, he was also President of the "Council of Jews from Germany", the official association of Israelis of German origin. In 1955 he co-founded the Leo Baeck Institute, serving as its director, and was on the advisory board of the United Restitution Organization in Israel (Wikipedia, 2015). SUBJECT(S): Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) -- Reparations. World War, 1939-1945 -- Claims. Jews -- Europe. Jewish property -- Germany -- History -- Post war problems -- Reparations for historical injustices.

In 1815 he became rabbi of Muenster, and in 1828 of Paderborn. An opponent of Reform, Sutro objected to the introduction of the organ into the synagogue. However, he supported vocational training for Jews and persuaded A. Haindorf to found a pedagogical institution bearing his name in Muenster. In 1853 he began to organize petitions to the Prussian authorities against discrimination in the appointment of Jews to governmental, particularly juridical, offices.

From the 3rd Annual Sol Feinstone Memorial Lecture series at West Point. This lecture given by Pulitzer Prize winning Jewish novelist and writer Herman Wouk. Wouk served in the Navy in the Pacific Theater of WWII. He addresses the west point graduates about The Meaning of Freedom, concluding, “In the last five years, working on ‘The Winds of War…’ I’ve spoken three times: to the Naval Academy, to the Naval War caollege, and now to the United States Military Academy. It isn’t because I’m a militarist. I’m not intrigued… by the romance of war. Let me make this plain to you. In my view war is a massive criminal absurdity… I believe, heart and soul, that in days to come it will fade from the minds of men and nations as a possible way to behave. That is what I’m trying to say in my books. ” This cannot have been well-received at West Point, and certainly would not have been a speech it would have wanted to promote or make readily available outside the academy.

    Early - Jan 1942 - Use of the Term 'Holocaust'

     

  23. Wertheim, Maurice. ADDRESS BY MAURICE WERTHEIM, PRESIDENT OF THE AMERICAN JEWISH COMMITTEE, DELIVERED AT THE THIRTY-FIFTH ANNUAL MEETING OF THE AMERICAN JEWISH COMMITTEE, NEW YORK, JANUARY 25, 1942. New York: American Jewish Committee, 1942. 1st Edition. Original Paper Wrappers. 8vo. 12 pages; 21 cm. In English. Very early (Jan 1942) use of the word “holocaust” to describe the ongoing atrocities in Europe. Maurice Wertheim (1886 – 1950) was an American investment banker, chess player, chess patron, environmentalist, and philanthropist (who) founded Wertheim & Co. In 1927… he served …on the War Production Board in the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. He was trustee of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of New York, Mount Sinai Hospital, and The Nation. He also served as president of the American Jewish Committee. ” (Wikipedia, 2016) In this 1942 presidential address to the American Jewish Committee Wertheim describes the ongoing Nazi persecution of European Jews as a ‘holocaust’: “The objectives of this committee shall be ‘to prevent the infraction of the civil and religious rights of Jews… (and) to secure for Jews equality of economic, social and educational opportunity. ’ At first sight, with the great holocaust swirling around us, this looks like an almost impossible task to set before any group of men and women. One might say, bend your head in sorrow, let the elements surge around you and take what comes. Still… All is not lost even for… (the) many of whom are now wandering homelessly about Europe…. If this war means anything, it means that such forces must be destroyed and destroyed forever…” OCLC lists just 4 copies worldwide (Harvard, Yale, Northwestern, US Holocaust Museum).

First Edition, 2nd printing, of The Diary of a Young Girl, from the same year as the first printing. This is a book which continues to hold its place at the top of many literary lists: the most famous diary of modern times, the most famous work by a teenager, most famous work on the Holocaust, most famous 20th Century work by a Jew. Primo Levi suggested that Anne Frank is frequently identified as a single representative of the millions of people who suffered and died as she did because "One single Anne Frank moves us more than the countless others who suffered just as she did but whose faces have remained in the shadows. Perhaps it is better that way; if we were capable of taking in all the suffering of all those people, we would not be able to live. " Otto Frank, Anne’s father spent the remainder of his life after publication of the Diary as custodian of his daughter's legacy, saying, "It's a strange role. In the normal family relationship, it is the child of the famous parent who has the honor and the burden of continuing the task. In my case the role is reversed. " He recalled his publisher's explaining why he thought the diary has been so widely read, with the comment, "he said that the diary encompasses so many areas of life that each reader can find something that moves him personally. " Simon Wiesenthal expressed a similar sentiment when he said that the diary had raised more widespread awareness of the Holocaust than had been achieved during the Nuremberg Trials, because "people identified with this child. This was the impact of the Holocaust, this was a family like my family, like your family and so you could understand this" (Wikipedia, 2012).

Perhaps it is better that way; if we were capable of taking in all the suffering of all those people, we would not be able to live. " Otto Frank, Anne’s father spent the remainder of his life after publication of the Diary as custodian of his daughter's legacy, saying, "It's a strange role.

Primo Levi suggested that Anne Frank is frequently identified as a single representative of the millions of people who suffered and died as she did because "One single Anne Frank moves us more than the countless others who suffered just as she did but whose faces have remained in the shadows. Perhaps it is better that way; if we were capable of taking in all the suffering of all those people, we would not be able to live." Otto Frank, Anne’s father spent the remainder of his life after publication of the Diary as custodian of his daughter's legacy, saying, "It's a strange role. In the normal family relationship, it is the child of the famous parent who has the honor and the burden of continuing the task. In my case the role is reversed." He recalled his publisher's explaining why he thought the diary has been so widely read, with the comment, "he said that the diary encompasses so many areas of life that each reader can find something that moves him personally." Simon Wiesenthal expressed a similar sentiment when he said that the diary had raised more widespread awareness of the Holocaust than had been achieved during the Nuremberg Trials, because "people identified with this child. This was the impact of the Holocaust, this was a family like my family, like your family and so you could understand this" (Wikipedia, 2012).

"This small but important book was distributed in Germany by the American War Information Unit at the end of the World War II in order to convey to the civilian population the enormity of the crimes committed by the Nazis in the name of the German people. Thus this book, which is not much more than a pamphlet, may represent the single most significant use of photography as a witness in the medium's history" (Parr, M. and Badger, G., The Photobook: A History Vol.II, p.194). It includes the famous and controversial photo of the Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel in Buchenwald (first published in the "New York Times" on May 6, 1945 with the caption "Crowded Bunks in the Prison Camp at Buchenwald" taken inside Block 56 by Private H.

Title translates into English as, “The Tenets of Neugermanischen Judeophobia with Special Reference to W. [Wilhelm] Marr’s Writings Historically and Factually Lit by Ludwig Stern. ” Stern was a German Talmudic scholar, teacher, author, and contemporary of Wilhelm Marr, who published this work in the same year as Marr’s infamous pamphlet, Der Weg zum Siege des Germanenthums über das Judenthum (The Way to Victory of Germanicism over Judaism, 1879). Wilhelm Marr (1819-1904), a radical agitator, had been on the left wing in the 48 revolutions; he later popularized the term anti-semitism. In ‘Der Weg zum Siege des Germanenthums über das Judenthum, ’ he introduced the idea that Germans and Jews were locked in a longstanding conflict, the origins of which he attributed to race, argued that Jewish emancipation resulting from German liberalism had allowed the Jews to control German finance and industry, and called for the expulsion of Jews from Germany. Marr later renounced anti-semitism at the end of his life, and declared himself as originally a 'philo-semite', undoubtedly under the impact of the debates in the SPD. This work was published in the same year as The Way to Victory of Germanicism over Judaism. OCLC lists 18 copies worldwide, and none outside of Europe.

September 1930 issue of “Süddeutsche Monatshefte” titled, “Die Judenfrage. ” Translates into English as, “The Jewish Question. ” Süddeutsche Monatshefte was one of the leading German cultural magazines, launched by Paul Nikolaus Cossmann, a Jewish journalist who later converted to Catholicism and died in Theresienstadt Concentration Camp. “Süddeutsche Monatshefte (‘South German Monthly’) was a German magazine published in Munich between January 1904 and September 1936. After beginnings as an art and literary venue, liberal but highly critical of modernism, it made a turn toward politics before World War I. Especially supportive of German conservatism, it was also sympathetic toward Völkisch ideologists, and published propaganda in favor of militarist politicians such as Alfred von Tirpitz. Having for its founder and editor Paul Nikolaus Cossmann, an assimilated Jew, Süddeutsche Monatshefte was generally antisemitic—strongly so after 1920, when it hosted calls for racial segregation. Its publication of conspiracy theories such as the stab-in-the-back myth paved the way for Nazi propaganda, but Süddeutsche Monatshefte was more closely aligned with the mainstream right. It played a part in conspiratorial alliances supporting the policies of Gustav von Kahr, although it also had Conservative Revolutionaries among its core contributors. In its late years, Süddeutsche Monatshefte turned to Bavarian nationalism and Wittelsbach loyalism, becoming a target for the Nazi regime. Cossmann was imprisoned for dissidence, then deported for his Jewishness; Leo Hausleiter (de) took over, leading Süddeutsche Monatshefte until its disestablishment in 1936.” (Wikipedia, 2016) This historical issue on “The Jewish Question, ” includes contributions both from some of the most prominent Jewish thinkers of the time including Israel Cohen, Leo Baeck, Ismar Elbogen as well as from influential anti-Semites including Theodor Fritsch.

Latvian collaborators, including the 500–1,500 members of the Arajs Commando (which alone killed around 26,000 Jews]) and other Latvian members of the SD, were also involved. 30,000 Jews were shot in the autumn of 1941 with most of the remaining Jewish people being rounded up and put into ghettos. In November and December 1941 the Riga Ghetto became crowded and to make room for the imminent arrival of German Jews, who were being shipped out of the country, all the remaining 30,000 Jews in Riga were taken from the ghetto to the nearby Rumbula Forest and shot” (Wikipedia, 2016). Yaroslavsky (1878-1943), born to an ethnically Jewish family in Chita, was a primary Communist Party historian, journalist, functionary, and ideologue. He was party historian and authored one of the first biographies of Lenin. He was also a staunch atheist and editor-in-chief of the party newspaper, Pravda (Wikipedia, 2016). Yaroslavky was also a leader of "’The Society of the Godless,’ an organization designed to produce anti-religious propaganda. He was a member of the presidium of the Central Control Commission, and co-authored its official charges against Trotsky, [in] 1927.

The first Jews who had received call-up orders arrived two days later, and the first train to Auschwitz left on August 4. This building was chosen for two reasons. It was right next to a railroad and Malines is located between Brussels and Antwerp, where 90% of the Jews in Belgium lived. After the roundups started, the Jews were taken by trucks to the inner square inside the barracks where armed SS were awaiting them. After being registered and stripped of their identity papers and last personal possessions, the prisoners had to wear a card around their neck with their number for the next deportation train. There were various categories of prisoners, the biggest of which were those marked for direct deportation. The barracks could house 1,000 persons, but at times more than 1, 700 were crammed into them, with about 100 people on bunk beds in dormitories only about 21 to 7 meters wide. Later, they had to sleep on straw bags on the floor. The guard duty on the perimeter was done by Flemish SS members, supervised by German Security Police”.

In 1946 Wells left Poland for the American Zone in Germany, and while in Munich he helped organize the Jewish Historical Commission there. This group gathered documents on the Holocaust which became part of the original collection of the Yad Vashem archive in Israel. Wells gave testimony at both the Nuremberg trials and the Eichmann trial....Wells published Who Speaks for the Vanquished? in 1987. In this work Wells investigated the "non-response" of American Jewish leaders of theplight of Jews in Nazi Europe. He contended that Zionist organizations in America failed to respond in a significant way to save the Jews of Europe because they were focusing their time, influence, and money on preparations for a Jewish state in Palestine" (Yale 2002).Repair to spine.

While Grossman was never arrested by the Soviet authorities, his two major literary works (Life and Fate and Forever Flowing) were censored during the ensuing Nikita Khrushchev period as unacceptably anti-Soviet, and Grossman himself became in effect a nonperson. The KGB raided Grossman's flat after he had completed Life and Fate, seizing manuscripts, notes and even the ribbon from the typewriter on which the text had been written.

Philadelphia; Jewish Publication Society, 1995. Publishers cloth. 4to. 199 pages. 29 cm. First English edition. Jointly published by the Jewish Publication Society of Philadelphia and the Aventinum Publishing House of Prague. Prepared and selected from the magazine "In the Lead" (Vedem) by Marie Ruth Krízková, Kurt Jirí Koutouc, and Zdenek Ornest; translated from the Czech by R. Elizabeth Novak; edited by Paul R. Wilson; with a foreword by Václav Havel. “From 1942 to 1944, a group of 13- to 15-year-old Jewish boys secretly produced a weekly magazine called Vedem (In the Lead) at the model concentration camp, Theresienstadt (‘Terezin’ in Czech). The writers, artists, and editors put together the issues and copied them by hand behind the blackout shades of their cellblock, which they affectionately called the ‘Republic of Shkid. ’ The material was saved by one of the handful of boys who survived the Holocaust, but it was suppressed for fifty years in Czechoslovakia. Now, for the first time, these works are being published simultaneously in English, Czech, and German.

One could only image the pride and pain that the April 1943 uprising held for Szyk whose tremendous belief in the idea of fighting back against injustice was at the core of his being, as he paid tribute and honor to the martyrs and heroes of his people. This very painting, one of Szyk’s most important, was widely circulated during the War and appeared on the covers and within numerous publications (including) HaDoar. ” (The Arthur Szyk Society, 2016).

During WWII he was trapped in the Warsaw Ghetto but was able to survive by being imprisoned with Russian POWs rather than Jews. (Wiki, 2016) SUBJECT(S): Dead -- Religious aspects -- Judaism.

(FOD) was organized in Kansas City, Missouri in 1937 by Unitarian minister Leon M. Birkhead. The group described itself as 'a non-partisan, non-sectarian, non-profit, anti-totalitarian propaganda agency.' In 1939 their offices were moved to New York City, an early branch of the group. In 1942 propagandist Rex Stout later became chairman of Friends of Democracy. John Dewey, Thomas Mann, Van Wyck Brooks, and Will Durant were also prominent members. By 1939 the Friends of Democracy had files on over 800 pro-NS Germany organizations in America. The group issued a journal called The Propaganda Battlefront and Democracy’s Battle. Author James P. Duffy in his book Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt: The Rivalry That Divided America claims that Friends of Democracy was a front group for British intelligence. He also makes the point that Birkhead became chairman of another front group controlled by the British called the Nonpartisan Committee to defeat Hamilton Fish. An interesting point which supports this claim is that FOD was strongly interventionist during time of the Hitler-Stalin pact. The group was the forerunner of today’s 'watchdog' organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center" that track hate groups (Wikipedia, 2016).

David Ben-Gurion was executive of the Agency until 1948, when he left to become Israel’s 1st Prime Minister.

Original Wrappers. 8vo. Xiii, 111 pages. 23 cm. First edition. Illustrated. Eight black and white photographs showing life in and around the Landsberg Displaced Persons camp. 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.

During the interwar period, he promoted the notion of international criminal proceedings against heads of state found guilty of crimes against humanity, through the establishment of a special international tribunal for that purpose. In 1938 he served as President of the Committee on Legal Questions of the League of Nations. In 1944 he was appointed Romanian Ambassador to Switzerland, and in that capacity saved some Romanian Jews from deportation to Nazi occupied Poland. In 1948, he took part in formulating the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.

Original Publisher's Cloth. Oblong 4to. 575, [7] pages. illus. 20 x 27 cm. In Yiddish and English throughout. A defining work on the lost Jewish communities of Europe. Others have come out in the last 2 decades, but this was the first (many, though by no means all, photos are by Roman Vishniac). Documenting Jewish life in Eastern Europe with over 600 photos (and text in English and Yiddish), this work was an early post-war portrayal of these communities within the obvious context that they were gone forever, some with almost no trace of their thousand year histories remaining. Abramovitch himself was a refugee from this world--he was a leader of the Mensheviks in exile who worked at the Jewish Daily Forward and was also active in the Bund. Published as a memorial to these extinct communities, the book is bound in attractive heavy red linen with gilt spine and cover lettering in English and Yiddish, with a paper label (with a woodcut design) on the front.

Kraków: Zwiazek Polskich Artystów Plastyków W Krakowie, 1965. 1st edition. Original printed paper wrappers, 8vo, 159 pages, primarily illustrations; 20 cm. Fully illustrated exhibition catalog for the important one-month show of works produced by Polish artists imprisoned in Concentration Camps. The title translates as: “Accusing the Nazis of their Crimes, 1939-1945: The Role of Polish Artists from Krakow and the Krakow Society of Fighters for Freedom and Democracy. ” Text in Polish with summaries in Russian, French, English and German. “Under the black wall of the Death Block at KL Auschwitz, a great many of Cracow’s artists, arrested in the Spring of 1942, met their death, while others went to fill of the camps dispersed through the Third Reich, to die of starvation and disease, from torture and exhaustion. The prison community, though evidently ignorant of the private directives issued by the central SS authorities for the destruction of the Polish leading circles, by instinct, as it were, and desirous to save these links so essential to the nation’s organism, tried to do its best to alleviate the imprisoned artists’ camp existence. Everything that could be done was done, frequently wth touching proof of loving solicitude [sic]. Artists were always given first place on the prisoner self-help lists, and surrounded with an atmosphere of true respect, a thing so rare and priceless in the circumstances of camp life. Their fellow-sufferers tried even to provide them with some sort of primitive conditions for work, and every sketch, design or sculpture produced under illegal or semi-legal conditions, was considered almost as it if were sacred, being another proof of resistance, another sign of survival of those very forces the enemy was so keen to destroy” (Tadeusz Holuj, pp 152-153).

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

As a teenager, Wells survived death marches and concentration camps; he later testified at Nuremberg and at the Eichmann trial. "Leon Weliczker Wells was born in Lvov, Poland, on March 10, 1925. Wells was a prisoner in the Janowska concentration camp outside Lvov during World War II. He escaped from the camp in an uprising in 1943 and was hidden in the basement of the Kalwinski family on the outskirts of Lvov. Wells kept a written record of his experiences as a member of the "Death Brigade," and these memoirs were published in Poland after the war and reissued in the United States as The Janowska Road. In 1946 Wells left Poland for the American Zone in Germany, and while in Munich he helped organize the Jewish Historical Commission there. This group gathered documents on the Holocaust which became part of the original collection of the Yad Vashem archive in Israel. Wells gave testimony at both the Nuremberg trials and the Eichmann trial....Wells published Who Speaks for the Vanquished? in 1987. In this work Wells investigated the "non-response" of American Jewish leaders of theplight of Jews in Nazi Europe. He contended that Zionist organizations in America failed to respond in a significant way to save the Jews of Europe because they were focusing their time, influence, and money on preparations for a Jewish state in Palestine" (Yale 2002).

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