Branching out : German-Jewish immigration to the United States, 1820-1914 by Avraham Barkai( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The many thousands of Jews from German-speaking lands who came to the United States throughout the nineteenth century played a major part in laying the foundations of the Jewish community in America. The author considers these immigrants a branch of German Jewry, compelled to seek overseas the political and civil rights denied them at home. In this volume of the Ellis Island Series, the fascinating story of this mass immigration of mostly poor, enterprising, young people is told in vivid detail. Drawing on rare letters, diaries, memoirs, period newspapers, journals, and other firsthand accounts, Barkai traces the process of family-oriented chain migration, resettlement, and acculturation, exploring as well the group's relations with the Jewish community in Germany and with German and Jewish immigrants in the New World. Often starting out as peddlers and storekeepers, the immigrants moved back and forth from East Coast towns and cities to settlements in the South, Midwest, and Far West, helping to expand the American frontier and to develop cities such as Cincinnati St. Louis, Milwaukee, and San Francisco. The narrative chronicles their experiences in the goldfields of California, on Indian reservations, and during the Civil War, in which German-Jewish soldiers in the Union and Confederate armies struggled against bigotry to assert their civil rights. These engaging personal narratives are woven into an account of the formative role played by German-Jewish immigrants in establishing the institutional framework of the American-Jewish community. Their influential network of mutual aid and philanthropic organizations would be challenged, at the turn of the century, by the great mass migration of Jews from Eastern Europe. The author's presentation of the dramatic encounter between these two groups sheds new light not only on this critical period in American-Jewish history but also on the dynamics of cultural change in a pluralist society

Vom Boykott zur "Entjudung" : der wirtschaftliche Existenzkampf der Juden im Dritten Reich, 1933-1943 by Avraham Barkai( Book )

20 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in German and Undetermined and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the progressive exclusion of Jews from the German economy by alternating applications of "popular anger" in the form of boycotts and violence against Jewish businesses and of legislative and administrative measures. Traces in detail how Jews were dismissed from the public service and prohibited from engaging in a growing number of occupations; businesses and real estate were Aryanized and special taxes completed the pauperization of the Jews. During the war, German Jews were concentrated in "Jewish houses", forced to hand over "superfluous" belongings, including clothing, and drafted for forced labor. With the mass deportations in 1942-43, the Nazis were able to extort or confiscate whatever Jewish property remained

"Wehr dich!" : der Centralverein deutscher Staatsbürger jüdischen Glaubens (C.V.) 1893-1938 by Avraham Barkai( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in German and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A history of the activities of the Centralverein between 1893-1938 in Germany, including its attempts to fight antisemitism and to achieve legal protection for the Jews. Based on documents of the CV recently discovered in Moscow archives, focuses on changes which occurred in the organization's ideology, goals, and activities after 1933, when the last illusions concerning social and political rehabilitation had vanished. Although the CV and the Zionists did not agree on ideology, after 1933 many loyal CV members emigrated to Palestine. Among those who remained, some were active in the Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland

In response to the traditional argument that business cooperation with the Nazi regime was motivated by profit, this book closely examines the behavior of the bank and its individuals to suggest other motivations.

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
