Jewish icons : art and society in modern Europe by Richard I Cohen( )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2,232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the help of over one hundred illustrations spanning three centuries, Richard Cohen investigates the role of visual images in European Jewish history. In these images and objects that reflect, refract, and also shape daily experience, he finds new and illuminating insights into Jewish life in the modern period." "Pointing to recent scholarship that overturns the stereotype of Jews as people of the text, unconcerned with the visual, Cohen shows how the coming of the modern period expanded the relationship of Jews to the visual realm far beyond the religious context. In one such manifestation, orthodox Jewry made icons of popular tabbis, creating images that helped to bridge the sacred and the secular. Toward the end of the nineteenth century, the study and collecting of Jewish art became a legitimate and even passionate pursuit, and signaled the entry of Jews into the art world as painters, collectors, and dealers. Cohen's exploration of early Jewish exhibitions, museums, and museology opens a new window on the relationship of art to Jewish culture and society."--Jacket
The burden of conscience : French Jewish leadership during the Holocaust by Richard I Cohen( )

12 editions published between 1987 and 1991 in English and held by 1,922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gives a short survey of French antisemitism and French Jewry before 1939, emphasizing the rift between the immigrant and native Jewish communities. The outbreak of war brought unity but, with the fall of France, many native Jews hoped to fit into the new order (in both the north and the south) while immigrants were stripped of all protection. Describes German efforts to set up a central Jewish representative body, and competition with Vichy's Commissariat General aux Questions Juives for control of the Jews in both zones. Examines the debates on the formation of the UGIF (Union Generale des Israelites de France) which institutionalized the separation of Jews on a racial basis. Surveys the activities of the UGIF and their relations with the French authorities. Contends that their welfare activities, including the administration of the deportation center at Drancy, assisted the Germans in the destruction of French Jewry

Visualizing and exhibiting Jewish space and history( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continuing its distinguished tradition of focusing on central political, sociological, and cultural issues of Jewish life in the last century, Volume XXVI of the annual Studies in Contemporary Jewry examines the visual revolution that has overtaken Jewish cultural life in the twentieth century onwards, with special attention given to the evolution of Jewish museums. Bringing together leading curators and scholars, Visualizing and Exhibiting Jewish Space and History treats various forms of Jewish representation in museums in Europe and the United States before the Second World War and inquires into the nature and proliferation of Jewish museums following the Holocaust and the fall of Communism in Western and Eastern Europe. In addition, a pair of essays dedicated to six exhibitions that took place in Israel in 2008 to mark six decades of Israeli art raises significant issues on the relationship between art and gender, and art and politics. An introductory essay highlights the dramatic transformation in the appreciation of the visual in Jewish culture. The scope of the symposium offers one of the first scholarly attempts to treat this theme in several countries. Also featured in this volume are a provocative essay on the nature of antisemitism in twentieth-century English society; review essays on Jewish fundamentalism and recent works on the subject of the Holocaust in occupied Soviet territories; and reviews of new titles in Jewish Studies.--
Jewish culture in early modern Europe : essays in honor of David B. Ruderman by Richard I Cohen( )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirty-one leading scholars both within and beyond Jewish studies advance, refine, and challenge how we understand the Jewish early modern period. The collection includes a comprehensive range of topics, beginning by examining authority structures of Jewish communities following the expulsions and migrations that reshaped the geographical contours of the Jewish world. The formation of Jewish communities, communal autonomy, and cultural representations of leadership are explored, pointing to a geographical remapping of a Jewish early modernity that can contribute to a better understanding of the integrated economic and cultural landscape of the time.--

The emergence of Jewish artists in nineteenth-century Europe by N.Y.) Jewish Museum (New York( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emancipation of Jews in Europe during the nineteenth century meant that for the first time they could participate in areas of secular life -- including established art academies -- that had previously been closed to them by legal restrictions. Jewish artists took many complex routes to establish their careers. Some -- such as Camille Pissaro -- managed to distinguish themselves without making any reference to their Jewish heritage in their art. Others -- such as Simeon Solomon and Maurycy Gottlieb -- wrestled with their identities as well to produce images of Jewish experience. The pogroms that began in the late nineteenth century brought home to Jews the problematic relationship of minority groups to majority cultures, and artists such as Maurycy Minkowski and Samuel Hirszenberg confronted the horror of the deaths of thousands of Jews in powerful images of destruction and despair. Comprehensively illustrated in color throughout, Painting in Nineteenth-Century Europe explores for the first time every aspect of the role of Jewish artists within nineteenth-century European art

Carnet d'un témoin : 1940-1943 by Raymond-Raoul Lambert( Book )

3 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in French and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents the diary of Lambert (1894-1943), covering the period between July 1940-August 1943. Lambert, a French Jewish journalist and administrator of the Comité National de Secours and the Comité d'assistance aux réfugiés d'Allemagne, dealt with refugee problems which arose following World War I. He was particularly interested in the plight of Jewish refugees. He served as the head of UGIF from the end of 1941 until his arrest in August 1943, when he was interned in Drancy. Four months later, he and his family (wife and four children) were deported to Auschwitz where they were gassed upon arrival. Although written with the caution necessary under stressful and dangerous conditions in southern France, Lambert's diary reveals his efforts to aid and protect the Jews, as well as his contacts with French and German authorities for this purpose. The diary also conveys his agonizing struggle to understand how his loyalties as a Frenchman could withstand the Vichy government's efforts to turn the Jews into pariahs of the society he cherished. In the introduction (pp. 13-62), Richard Cohen highlights the moral dilemmas which Lambert faced, which resembled those of other Jewish leaders in Europe having to decide whether or not to collaborate with the Nazis and the local authorities. He presents new information on how Lambert provided aid to the Jewish resistance via UGIF
