Different forms of immigrant group adaptation and stress in Israel: A search for individual authenticity and collective immortality by Phyllis Palgi( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This presentation is based upon anthropological research on immigrants in Israel conducted over a period of many years. Its various chapters may appear to be heterogeneous from the point of view of the aspects chosen for analysis and the approaches adopted. However, they are all drawn from research with a similar basic aim and are implicitly united by a common theme. In terms of my own training and experience, and in terms of the situation in Israel during the years I have been working, this aim is explained in my Introduction. My investigations have been on various segments of Israeli society which highlighted the nature of the same basic problem. My own effort to understand has always been theoretical, but never theoretical alone. I have always hoped that my work would be of help, in particular, to those who were regarded as the "difficult" or "problem ones" among all of the ethnic groups; those who felt strange or lost in contemporary modern society and those who had passed through the hell of the Nazi holocaust. I am optimistic enough to believe that there are special circumstances in Israel which give vastly different cultural groups a chance to change and adjust anew. Since Israel, the host country, is symbolically included in the collective past of each group, the immigrants experienced both change and continuity. In preserving their links with the past which are tied to their futures, they will in a sense, assure their own immortality
Into the inferno : memoir of a Jewish paratrooper behind Nazi lines by Yoel Palgi( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In the spring of 1944, a group of thirty-two young Palestinian Jews parachuted into Nazi-held Eastern Europe and the Balkans. Their goal was to encourage Jewish resistance where possible and to organize rescue schemes thwarting deportations to the death camps. Linking up in Yugoslavia and impelled by the hope that the Jews trapped in Hungary were still capable of fighting back, some of the volunteers set out for Budapest. Tragically, they were betrayed by their local guides, who turned out to be double agents also working for the Hungarian Fascists. The volunteers reached Budapest where the young woman volunteer, Hannah Szenes, was executed and another deported to a death camp."
