The Holocaust in the East: Local Perpetrators and Soviet Responses (Pitt Russian East European)

Sunday, June 15, 2014
Most of this anthology is about the unfolding Holocaust in Nazi German occupied eastern Poland, western Soviet Union, and eastern Romania. I limit my review to general comments about the USSR and specific comments about Poland. This book is of variable quality (hence my 3-star rating), and much of it (especially Marci Shore's chapter on Jedwabne) rehashes old information >>more...

Jews, Liquor, and Life in the Kingdom of Poland

Sunday, May 18, 2014
This review is from: Yankel's Tavern: Jews, Liquor, and Life in the Kingdom of Poland (Hardcover) The author has written a fascinating study that exhibits an obvious attempt at even-handedness. However, in common with many works on this subject, it treats Jews primarily as the servants of nobles and rulers, and devotes insufficient attention to the decision-making freedoms of Jews. The time period of this book is the late 1700's through the mid- and late-1800's, the era of Partition and post-Partition Poland. >>more...

“ The Jedwabne pogrom (pronounced [jɛdˈvabnɛ]) of July 1941 during German occupation of Poland, was a massacre (pogrom) of at least 340 Polish Jews,[1] of all ages.

Ignatiew, who headed an investigation in 2000–2003 ordered by the Polish government.[3] >>more...

Theological and Halakhic Reflections on the Holocaust

Sunday, April 20, 2014
This work includes the early-postwar testimonies of rabbis, and their lucid and moving description of the sufferings of the Jews. This included not only the brutal murders of 6 million innocent men, women, and children, but also the systematic destruction of centuries of Jewish civilization. The heartfelt descriptions brought me to tears.

Observing America's Jews (Brandeis Series in American Jewish History, Culture, and Life)

Sunday, April 20, 2014
Author Marshall Sklare was a Jewish American sociologist who had studied America's Jews. [Review based on 1993 edition]. He was eminently qualified to speak on this subject. A number of coauthors had joined him. Most of the themes of this book are familiar: Jewish self-identity, Jewish mobility, intermarriage with non-Jews, Jewish support for Israel, Jewish philanthropy, Jewish conversions and resistance to them, etc. There is relatively little on the role of the Shoah in the self-identity of American Jews. >>more...
