Never look back : the Jewish refugee children in Great Britain, 1938-1945 by Judith Tydor Baumel-Schwartz( )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 1,498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between December 1938 and September 1939, nearly ten thousand refugee children from Central Europe, mostly Jewish, found refuge from Nazism in Great Britain. This was known as the Kindertransport movement, in which the children entered as transmigrants, planning to return to Europe once the Nazis lost power. In practice, most of the kinder, as they called themselves, remained in Britain, eventually becoming citizens. This book charts the history of the Kindertransport movement, focusing on the dynamics that developed between the British government, the child refugee organizations, the Jewish community in Great Britain, the general British population, and the refugee children. After an analysis of the decision to allow the children entry and the machinery of rescue established to facilitate its implementation, the book follows the young refugees from their European homes to their resettlement in Britain either with foster families or in refugee hostels. Evacuated from the cities with hundreds of thousands of British children, they soon found themselves in the countryside with new foster families, who often had no idea how to deal with refugee children barely able to understand English. Members of particular refugee children?s groups receive special attention: participants in the Youth Aliyah movement, who immigrated to the United States during the war to reunite with their families; those designated as Friendly Enemy Aliens at the war?s outbreak, who were later deported to Australia and Canada; and Orthodox refugee children, who faced unique challenges attempting to maintain religious observance when placed with Gentile foster families who at times even attempted to convert them. Based on archival sources and follow-up interviews with refugee children both forty and seventy years after their flight to Britain, this book gives a unique perspective into the political, bureaucratic, and human aspects of the Kindertransport scheme prior to and during World War II
Perfect heroes : the World War II parachutists and the making of Israeli collective memory by Judith Tydor Baumel-Schwartz( )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During World War II, the British military dropped several dozen parachutists from Palestine, including three women, behind enemy lines in Eastern Europe and the Balkans. These young soldiers, most of whom had fled Europe only a few years earlier, faced a double challenge: their British mission was to find pilots who had jettisoned over enemy territory and assist them in returning to Allied-occupied lands; their Zionist mission was to contact Jewish communities, assist them in rebuilding the local Zionist movement, and, when necessary, help their members escape from the Nazis. Seven of the parachutists lost their lives in this effort. In Perfect Heroes, an expanded and updated English adaptation of her Hebrew book Giborim le-mofet, Judith Tydor Baumel-Schwartz recounts the history of these parachutists' wartime escapades and also analyzes the ways that various segments of Israeli society & mdash;military, political, legal, educational, youth, literary, and artistic & mdash;used the parachutists' story over the course of fifty years to build a nationalist narrative and to promote their own partisan and, at times, contradictory agendas. Baumel-Schwartz also offers broader comparative discussions of how individuals were commemorated as WWII heroes and heroines in many countries, in service of national mythologizing and collective memory
Holocaust survivors : resettlement, memories, identities( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many books on Holocaust survivors deal with their lives in the Displaced Persons camps, with memory and remembrance, and with the nature of their testimonies. Representing scholars from different countries and different disciplines such as history, sociology, demography, psychology, anthropology, and literature, this collection explores the survivors' return to everyday life and how their experience of Nazi persecution and the Holocaust impacted their process of integration into various European countries, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and Israel. Thus, it offers a rich mix of pe

Palestine, where they eventually established their own independent settlement in 1948. This settlement exists as Kibbutz Netzer Sereni today. Drawing from the diaries of the kibbutz's founding members, Baumel provides a detailed account of an incredible story and places the central narrative in the larger contexts of communal living, European politics after the war, and the link between European Jewry and Israeli postwar nationhood. An afterword briefly describes the

Identity, heroism and religion in the lives of contemporary Jewish women by Judith Tydor Baumel-Schwartz( )

12 editions published between 1899 and 2013 in English and German and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What makes us what we are? How does our gender affect our identity? Who are our heroes and heroines and how do they mould the decisions we make and the way we live our lives? In what ways does our connection - or lack there of - to our birth religion shape our adult selves? These are just some of the questions which Identity, Heroism and Religion in the Lives of Contemporary Jewish Women addresses
Unfulfilled promise : rescue and resettlement of Jewish refugee children in the United States, 1934-1945 by Judith Tydor Baumel-Schwartz( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and German and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses U.S. admissions policy for unaccompanied child refugees from countries under Nazi jurisdiction. Only about 1,000 Jewish children and several thousand non-Jewish children were allowed entry between 1934-45. Relates the struggle against immigration restrictions for children which was conducted by various persons and organizations, both Jewish and non-Jewish, the subsequent admission of these children, their resettlement and assimilation. Analyzes the factors (post-recession economic conditions, latent antisemitism, anti-immigrant public mood, tenuous position of the Jewish organizations) responsible for the fact that such a small number of children were admitted into the USA

A very special life, the Bernice chronicles : one woman's journey through twentieth century Jewish America by Judith Tydor Baumel-Schwartz( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tells the story of mid-20th century Jewish America through the eyes of Bernice Cohen Schwartz, born in NYC in 1923. The oldest daughter of a family of Eastern European origin, Bernice had an American-born mother, but in other things was similar to her contemporaries, reflecting the lives of a generation of pre-WWI urban Jews in America with immigrant parents. Her life story reflects much of the development of American Jewry during the middle of the 20th century: the Great Depression, the Second World War, the development of Zionism, the response to the new State of Israel, and the development of Jewish suburbia. We follow Bernice's school years during the Depression, her connection with the Bronx Y, her college studies, her stint in the Women's Land Army, study trip to Israel in 1949, and marriage to Arthur Schwartz, a young army veteran and social work student from Nyack, NY. After the couple's odyssey through several East Coast Jewish communities, they and their sons settled in Teaneck, New Jersey. We follow Bernice's response to her oldest son immigrating to Israel, and the couple's move to Riverdale, NY and life there during their "Golden Years" in the 21st century
The incredible adventures of Buffalo Bill from Bochnia (68715) : the story of a Galician Jew : persecution, liberation, transformation by Judith Tydor Baumel-Schwartz( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This a book about Chaskel Tydor, an Auschwitz and Buchenwald survivor, who was at various times a bookkeeper, metallurgist, kibbutz founder, Hebrew book publisher, uranium mine manager, and travel agent. Spanning close to ninety years of life, his story takes the reader through three continents, two marriages, and one Holocaust. At the same time, it is also the story of much of the Jewish people during the twentieth century, or at least those who found themselves wandering between countries, learning to function in new languages and societies, building and joining various Jewish communities, and continuously adopting different outward ways of life while trying to maintain their Jewish beliefs and practices. Through the story of one, albeit unique man, we learn the history of an era: Jewish life in Eastern Europe before the First World War, events in Weimar and Hitler's Germany during the 1920s and 1930s, the struggle for survival in Nazi camps, the creation of the State of Israel, Jewish life in the United States after the Second World War including in far-flung areas such as Montana and South Dakota, and finally, the events in Israel following the Yom Kippur War and up to and including the first Intifada (1987). This a book of Jewish survival and triumph chronicling the transformation and rebirth not only of one man but of an entire Jewish world."--Publisher's description

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freida Sima Eisenberg Kraus was among the two million Jews who emigrated from Europe to the United States during the Great Wave of Immigration (1881-1914).

It describes how she and a whole immigrant generation survived the Depression, sent their children off to fight for America during the Second World War while worrying about what was happening to the families that they had left back in Europe. It describes what happened to her European family and how she was reunited with her surviving siblings after the war. The book continues for almost a half century after the war's end, portraying these former immigrants through their retirement and until the final years of their lives
