Unwanted legacies : sharing the burden of post-genocide generations by Gottfried Wagner( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How does a society reconcile itself in a post-genocide era? How can generations of those whose families were victims and victimizers break the cycle of hate, mistrust, shame, and guilt that characterizes their relationship? What family reactions do they face as they seek to begin the act of sitting across from each other and facing their legacies? For more than two decades, Gottfried Wagner, great-grandson of composer Richard Wagner, whose music inspired Adolf Hitler and whose family helped the Nazis rise to power, and Abraham J. Peck, the son of two survivors whose entire families were murdered in the Holocaust, have been engaged in a unique and often torturous discussion on the German-Jewish relationship after the Shoah. That discussion has focused on their family histories and on the myths and realities of the relationship between Germans and Jews since the beginning of the nineteenth century and the process of reshaping that relationship for those Germans and Jews born after 1945. Rejecting the notion that they are either victims or perpetrators, both authors examine the "unwanted legacies" they inherited and have had to confront and overcome."--

P>+++ Das Überblickswerk zum Pogrom an den Juden 1938 +++ Das Attentat des 17-jährigen Herschel Grynszpan auf einen deutschen Botschaftsangehörigen in Paris lieferte den Nationalsozialisten den Vorwand zu dem von oben organisierten reichsweiten Pogrom gegen die jüdische Bevölkerung. In der Nacht vom 9. auf den 10. November 1938 fielen fast alle der noch verbliebenen 400 Synagogen den Brandstiftungen und Plünderungen bierseliger Parteigenossen zum Opfer. Die Feuerwehr griff nur dort ein, wo "arische" Nachbargrundstücke gefährdet waren. An die hundert Juden verloren in dieser Nacht ihr Leben, 7 500 jüdische Geschäfte wurden demoliert und ausgeraubt. Rund 30 000 vornehmlich wohlhabende Juden prügelte man aus ihren Häusern und Wohnungen und verschleppte sie in Konzentrationslager

Maine's Jewish heritage by Abraham J Peck( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to historian Benjamin Band, the first record of a Jew in Maine concerns Susman Abrams, a tanner who resided in Union until his death at 87 in 1830. Historical records beginning in 1849 also tell of a small Bangor community that organized a synagogue and purchased a burial ground. But it was not until the late 19th century that Jewish communities grew large enough to establish multiple synagogues, Hebrew schools for boys, kosher butcher shops, and Jewish bakeries. Eventually there were Jewish charitable societies, community centers, and social clubs across the state. Now, 150 years later, Jews serve every Maine community in every possible capacity, free from the barriers of social or religious discrimination. This book honors the accomplishments of Maine's Jewish residents
