From Dreyfus to Vichy : the remaking of French Jewry, 1906-1939 by Paula Hyman( Book )

From the close of the Dreyfus Affair to the outbreak of World War II, the French Jewish community was profoundly altered by the immigration of Eastern European Jews. Bringing with them ethnic definitions of Jewish identity and notions of political activism, the immigrants stimulated a major transformation- demographic, socio-economic, institutional, and ideological- in a French Jewish community that has practiced an ideology of assimilation since the mid-nineteenth century. This book explores this process of transformation against the backdrop of the increasingly xenophobic climate of France at the beginning of the twentieth century. It shows how the French setting shaped the meeting of native and immigrant Jews, and explores why that confrontation proved more difficult in France than in the Anglo-Saxon countries. Drawing on new archival sources, the author deals not only with the politics of native and immigrant Jews, but with their social history as well. This work adds a comparative dimension to previous studies of Jewish immigration, most of which have focused on North America, and also provides a view of France from the vantage point of one of her most significant minorities. -- Publisher description

My life as a radical Jewish woman : memoirs of a Zionist feminist in Poland by Puʻah Raḳoṿsḳa( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this striking autobiography Puah Rakovsky (1865-1955) tells of her experiences as a Jewish woman in late 19th- and early 20th-century Poland who broke with her traditional upbringing to become a professional educator, Zionist activist, and feminist leader. Her passionate account offers unprecedented entrée into the life experience of East European Jewry in a period of massive social change. Published in the original Yiddish in 1954, the work appears here in English for the first time, annotated and with a historical introduction by Paula E. Hyman. Born into a rabbinic family in 1865 in Bialystok, then within the Russian Empire, Rakovsky witnessed the flourishing of a variety of radical political movements, the birth of Zionism, and the devastation of World War I. No mere bystander, she was an activist who assumed leadership roles in the public arenas of education and politics: she founded a pioneering Jewish girls' school in Warsaw and a national Jewish women's organization in 1920s Poland. In her memoir Rakovsky reflects on the position of Jewish women in her time and gives her personal and political perspective on central events of modern Jewish history from her childhood until her emigration to the Land of Israel in 1935"--Publisher's description

Rethinking European Jewish history( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Europe has changed greatly in the last century. Political, social and ideological transformations have not only redrawn the map of the continent but have rewoven the fabric of its culture. These changes have nourished widespread reassessment in European historical research in terms of its presuppositions, its methodologies, its directions, its emphases, and its scope. The political boundaries between nations and states, along with the very concepts of 'nation' and 'boundary', have changed significantly, and the self-consciousness of ethnic minorities has likewise evolved in new directions. All these developments have affected how the Jews of Europe perceive themselves, and helped shape how historians view the Jewish past. This volume looks at the Jewish past in the spirit of this reassessment. Part I reconciders the basic parameters of the subject as well as some of its fundamental concepts suggesting new assumptions and perspectives from which to conduct future studies of European Jewish history. Topics covered here include periodization and the definition of geographical borders, antisemitism, gender and the history of Jewish women, and notions of assimilation. Part II is devoted to articulating the meaning of 'modernity' in the history of European Jewry and demarcating key stages in its crystallization. Contributors here reflect on the defining characteristics of a distinct early modern period in European Jewish history, the Reformation and the Jews, and the fundamental features of the Jewish experience in modern times. Parts III and IV present two scholarly conversations as case studies for the application of the critical and programmatic categories considered thus far: the complex web of relationships between Jews, Christians, and Jewish converts to Christianity (Conversos, New Christians, Marranos) in fifteenth-century Spain; and the impact of American Jewry on Jewish life in Europe in the twentieth century, at a time when the dominant trend was one of migration from Europe to the Americas. This timely volume suggests a new framework for the study of Jewish history and helps to contextualize it within the mainstream of historical scholarship
