Imprint: Tel-Aviv: Y.L. Perets, 1965
Binding: Hardback
Hardcover, 8vo. , 135 pages. In Yiddish. 40 Years of Papiernikov in the Land of Israel. SUBJECT (S) : Papyernikov, Yosef -- Criticism and interpretation. Published by Yidishn literatn un zshurnalistn-farayn in Yisro'el. Papiernikov, Joseph (1897–1993) , was a “Yiddish poet. Born in Warsaw, he attended a Russian secondary school. Because of his fine voice and sensitive ear for music, he was accepted as choir boy by Cantor Gershon Sirota in the Tlomacka Synagogue in Warsaw. At an early age he joined the Left Po'alei Zion party, which supported the development of a modern Yiddish literature, and there he found the first audience for his lyrics. In 1924 he immigrated to Palestine, where he remained except for an extended sojourn in Poland (1929–33) . After his first poem was published in 1918, his melodious poetry, with its rich imagery and folklike quality, was welcomed in numerous Yiddish journals in Poland and other countries, and his lyric "Zol Zayn az Ikh Boy in der Luft Mayne Shleser" ("I Build my Castles in the Air") , to which he also composed the music, became a popular folk song. Eight collections of Papiernikov's poems were printed before World War II, including In Zunikn Land ("In the Sunny Land, " 1927) and Far Mir un far Ale ("For Me and the Others, " 1936) and a volume of his translations of S. Essenin's poetry (1933) . A faithful lyric recorder of the hardships of the pioneers in the Jewish home-land, Papiernikov's post-Holocaust poetry, short stories, and memoirs, which were collected in several volumes, have a more elegiac tonality. He was honored with several literary awards, and a volume of tributes to him was published on the 40th anniversary of his settling in Israel: 40 Yor Papiernikov in Erets-Yisroel (1965) ” (Biletzky, EJ, 2007) .

Edition: First Edition
Binding: Paperback
1st edition. 4to, Original Paper Wrappers, 8 pages each issue, 13 numbers in 12 separate issues, as published. In Yiddish. Title translates as “Bulletin of the Bund.” Complete run of this early post-Holocaust iteration the Bund’s monthly newsletter (also serving “Kindred Jewish Socilaist Organizations”), reflecting the concerns of it’s membership of secular Polish Holocaust survivors as well as pre-war immigrants to the US. Full of interesting articles including: Reports and declarations from the World Bund Conference in Brussels, including declarations on Antisemitism the workers’ movement, etc; The 1947 Socialist conference in Zurich; Bund activity in postwar-Poland, Belgium, Italy, France, Brazil, and Argentina; Jewish Socialists in Rumania; Bund Resolutions on the Camps; German Socialists and the Jewish Question; Professor Hirsh and Palestine; Discussion in the Bun on the Status of Palestine; On the Bundist Youth Movement in Poland; Special Camps; The Bulletin of the Bund [ie this periodical] in the [DP] Camps; “Five Years in the Warsaw Ghetto,’ by Bernard Goldshtein; Bundist Academy in the “Gan Eden” Camp in New York; A Memorial for the ‘Bund’ at the Congress of the French Socialists; etc. “The General Jewish Labour Bund in Lithuania, Poland and Russia (Yiddish: ‘algemeyner yidisher arbeter-bund in lite, poyln un rusland’), generally called The Bund or the Jewish Labour Bund, was a secular Jewish socialist party.... founded in Vilnius on October 7, 1897…..In 1917 the Polish part of the Bund, which dated to the times when Poland was a Russian territory, seceded from the Russian Bund and created a new Polish General Labor Bund which continued to operate in Poland in the years between the two world wars….The Bund sought to unite all Jewish workers in the Russian Empire into a united socialist party, and also to ally itself with the wider Russian social democratic movement to achieve a democratic and socialist Russia. The Russian Empire then included Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus, Ukraine and most of present-day Poland, areas where the majority of the world's Jews then lived. They hoped to see the Jews achieve a legal minority status in Russia. Of all Jewish political parties of the time, the Bund was the most progressive regarding gender equality, with women making up more than one-third of all members. The Bund actively campaigned against anti-Semitism. It defended Jewish civil and cultural rights and rejected assimilation. However, the close promotion of Jewish sectional interests and support for the concept of Jewish national unity (klal yisrael) was prevented by the socialist universalism of the Bund. The Bund avoided any automatic solidarity with Jews of the middle and upper classes and generally rejected political cooperation with Jewish groups that held religious, Zionist or conservative views. Even the anthem of the Bund, known as "the oath" (di shvue in Yiddish), written in 1902 by Sh. An-ski, contained no explicit reference to Jews or Jewish suffering. At the heart of the vision of the future of the Bund was the idea that there is no contradiction between the national aspect on the one hand and the socialist aspect on the other. As a strictly secular organization, the Bund renounced the Holy Land and the sacred language (Hebrew) and chose to speak Yiddish….In its early years the Bund had remarkable success, gaining an estimated 30,000 members in 1903 and an estimated 40,000 supporters in 1906, making it the largest socialist group in the Russian Empire…. the Bund was a founding collective member at the RSDLP's first congress in Minsk in March 1898. For the next 5 years, the Bund was recognized as the sole representative of the Jewish workers in the RSDLP, although many Russian socialists of Jewish descent, especially outside of the Pale of Settlement, joined the RSDLP directly….The Bund generally sided with the party's Menshevik faction led by Julius Martov and against the Bolshevik faction led by Vladimir Lenin during the factional struggles in the run-up to the Russian Revolution of 1917….In the Polish areas of the [Russian] empire, the Bund was a leading force in the 1905 revolution. At that time the organization probably reached the height of its influence. It called for an improvement in living standards, a more democratic political system and the introduction of equal rights for Jews. At least in the early stages of the first Russian Revolution, the armed groups of the "Bund" were likely the strongest revolutionary force in Western Russia. During the following years, the Bund went into a period of decay….The Bund eventually came to strongly oppose Zionism, arguing that emigration to Palestine was a form of escapism. The Bund did not advocate separatism. Instead, it focused on culture, rather than a state or a place, as the glue of Jewish ‘nationalism.’ …. The Bund also promoted the use of Yiddish as a Jewish national language and to some extent opposed the Zionist project of reviving Hebrew. The Bund won converts mainly among Jewish artisans and workers, but also among the growing Jewish intelligentsia. It led a trade union movement of its own. It joined with the Poalei Zion (Labour Zionists) and other groups to form self-defense organisations to protect Jewish communities against pogroms and government troops. During the Russian Revolution of 1905 the Bund headed the revolutionary movement in the Jewish towns, particularly in Belarus and Ukraine…..In 1921, the Communist Bund [in the USSR] dissolved itself and its members sought admission to the Communist Party....Many former Bundists, like Mikhail Liber and David Petrovsky, perished during Stalin's purges in the 1930s. The Polish Bundists continued their activities until 1948. During the latter half of the 20th century the Bundist legacy was represented through the International Jewish Labor Bund, a federation of local Bundist groups around the world….Among the exiled Bundists who went on with Socialist politics in America was Baruch Charney Vladeck (1886–1938), elected to the New York Board of Aldermen as a Socialist in 1917…[and] 1937 [and] manager of The Jewish Daily Forward…Moishe Lewis (1888–1950)....the father of David Lewis (1909–1981), a leader of the New Democratic Party in Canada….David Dubinsky (1892–1982), though never formally a member of the party, had joined the bakers' union, which was controlled by the Bund, and was elected assistant secretary within the union by 1906…..He later became a member of the Socialist Party of America, helped found the American Labor Party in 1936 and was from 1932 till 1966 the leader of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union…..under the name Max Goldfarb, David Petrovsky (1886–1937) was a member of the Central Committee of the Jewish Socialist Federation of America, a member of the Socialist Party of America, and the labor editor of The Forward” (Wikipedia).

It was the music of hard work, of intense anxiety, of a hard life, but also of noisy youth, semi-intellectuals, observant Jews, Hasidim who lived and had aspirations in the small Jewish town Brzezin. The Nazi savages extinguished this life forever, transformed it into ashes. Only a few Jews from the tailoring town Brzezin, by some miracle, remain, scattered over the entire world, individuals who were witnesses to the German cannibalism. May these words, frail in print, but inscribed not with ink but with blood, be a modest contribution to the matseve [gravestone] for my native town, Brzezin. Brzezin was one of the oldest and most popular Jewish communities in Poland. When this community was established, it carried the name Krakowek [Little Krakow]. At that time, the community extended from the Strykower highway to beyond the Jewish besoylem [cemetery] to the surrounding hills. The Polish noblewoman, Anna Lasocka, had brought the first weavers from afar into this community. Then the community developed even further and began to broaden its borders. At that time, the town already carried the name Brzezin. Jewish tailors came to Brzezin from many places, and after several generations, the town developed its own type of tailoring industry, by which it was known all over the world. A cottage industry was the main occupation here. As early as 1772, Brzezin was famous for its mass production in tailoring. Until 1914 the great Czarist Russia was flooded with the inexpensive products of Brzeziner tailors. In the years between the two world wars, the export of Brzezin industry was spread over many lands in Europe and into other parts of the world. In this, the great Jewish magaziners [owners of clothing enterprises] – exporters such as Frankensztejn, Tuszynski, Sulkowicz, and others played a great role. The Jews in Brzezin did not only work, they also participated actively in the socio-political and cultural life of the town, had their representatives on the town council – in town hall, and had their religious and secular educational, cultural, and social organizations.

8vo; 1st edition. Original illustrated red boards, 8vo, 342 pages. In Yiddish. Title translates as, "The destruction of Vilna." Kaczerginski (1908–1954) was a “Yiddish writer and cultural activist. Born in Vilna to a poor family and educated at that city’s Talmud Torah, Shmerke (Pol., Szmerke) Kaczerginski lost both his parents during World War I. As a youth, he was involved with outlawed Communist groups and was arrested several times, serving a lengthy prison term. In the 1930s, two of his revolutionary poems became popular in Poland. He wrote short stories with a radical bent and was a correspondent and reporter for literary publications, including the semilegal leftist press in Poland and the New York Communist daily Morgn-frayhayt. Kaczerginski played a key role in shaping the writers’ and artists’ group Yung-Vilne; he organized its evening events and was the de facto publisher of its three miscellanies between 1934 and 1936. During the period of Soviet control over Lithuania in 1940–1941, he was even more active in the field of Yiddish culture, but at the same time experienced his first disappointments with the attitude of the Soviet regime toward Jewish culture. During the first period of Nazi occupation, Kaczerginski wandered through villages and towns posing as a deaf mute; after many difficulties, he ended up in the Vilna ghetto. Kaczerginski was very involved in the ghetto’s cultural activities. As a leader of its youth club, he wrote its Yugnt-himen (Youth Hymn), a song that immediately became popular. In 1943, he wrote the song “Shtiler, shtiler” in memory of the mass murders committed at Ponar. Set to music that Aleksander Volkoviski (later known as Aleksander Tamir) had submitted to a contest organized by the ghetto, the song was first heard at an evening performance there and over the years became one of the best-known songs of the Holocaust. With Avrom Sutzkever and others, Kaczerginski became part of a group of forced laborers whom the Germans designated to sort Jewish cultural treasures at YIVO and other locations. Known as the Papir-brigade (Paper Brigade), the group’s members risked their lives to hide the most significant items, smuggling them back into the ghetto or entrusting them to non-Jewish acquaintances. Kaczerginski was a member of the Fareynikte Partizaner Organizatsye (United Partisans Organization; FPO), and, since YIVO’s building was located outside the ghetto walls, he took part in smuggling weapons into the ghetto. In September 1943, Kaczerginski, along with Avrom and Freydke Sutzkever and other members of the FPO, escaped from the Vilna ghetto as part of an organized group of fighters just before its liquidation. They joined a Soviet partisan unit in the Naroch Forests, where Kaczerginski fought as a partisan until liberation in July 1944. Kaczerginski’s books describe the destruction of Vilna, the partisan struggle, and his own experiences during the Holocaust period: Khurbn Vilne (The Destruction of Vilna; 1947), Partizaner geyen (Partisans on the Move; 1947), and Ikh bin geven a partizan (I Was a Partisan; 1952)” (YIVO, 2010).

Binding: Paperback
(FT) Original Wrappers. 8vo. 55 pages. 23 cm. First edition. Title page verso: The Old Man of Lompaduni and other Stories. This beautifully illustrated book of childrens stories is printed in seven colors of ink. The author of these seven stories in Yiddish was Yuri Suhl, who emigrated from Poland to the United States in the 1920’s, and became well known as a Yiddish poet and childrens writer. His other works included the popular "They Fought Back: The Story of Jewish Resistance in Nazi Europe. " That work was praised as a landmark contribution to Holocaust literature and Suhl spent more than five years documenting it before it was published in 1967. His other works included "Eloquent Crusader: Ernestine Rose, " a biography of the Polish-born feminist, and two autobiographical novels: "One Foot in America" and "Cowboy on a Wooden Horse. " He was also a trustee of the fund set up for the sons of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. The illustrator, William Gropper (1897–1977) , a cartoonist, painter, lithographer, and muralist; he grew up in the lower east side, and an aunt of his died in the triangle shirtwaist factory fire. He was a dedicated left wing political cartoonist for both English and Yiddish papers. During the second half of the 1930s, Gropper dedicated his art to the efforts to raise popular opposition to fascism in Europe. Following World War II, Gropper traveled to Poland to attend the inaugural convention of the World Congress of Intellectuals for Peace of 1948 in Wroclaw. This Yiddish childrens book was printed there, both for an audience of international anti-fascist partisans and survivors gathering to found the World Peace Council, as well as for those survivors living in Wroclaw, one of the largest post-war Jewish communities in Poland for a few years.

1st edition. Original cloth. 4to, x + 205 (English) + 396 (Yiddish) + v pages. Illustartions throughout. “Bialystok's strength rests only in its extraordinary features but in its normal characteristics as well. The fifty thousand living there are doing reasonably well financially and also spiritually, like other Jews in Poland. Still, Bialystok was the first, at the end of the German occupation after World War I, to abolish its autocratic community leadership, replacing it with an exemplary democratic system that will do down in history. The Hebraist movement in Bialystok was only a part of the diffuse cultural advance in all of Poland. But when Bialystok established its Hebrew Gymnasium (high school) it was the rank and file Jews, not the radical Hebraists, who erected it. The tall, sturdy building evoked the admiration of the local community as well as of visitors from near and far, especially since it could accommodate seven hundred students. The Yiddish influence in Bialystok was also only a part of the Yiddish movement in all of Poland and in the entire world. But with the exception of Wilno, no other Jewish town besides Bialystok was able to fashion such an intricate Yiddish school network, let alone a high school, despite difficult circumstances. The orphan problem became one of the most critical social issues in Bialystok after World War I. Surely no other city had someone like Mrs. Rabinowicz, who, when the situation became next to hopeless, was the only leader in all of Poland who went to America to obtain the necessary assistance for these unfortunate children. It is possible to mention hundreds of other examples of community and private initiatives in Bialystok which clearly depict its special atmosphere of effervescing creativity – a contagion transmitted from one to another – compelling everyone to outdo his neighbour. Such is the breeding ground for important accomplishments. ” (Pejsach Kaplan, a prominent Bialystoker writer and social activist) SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- Poland -- Bialystok.

Born in Kuldiga (Latvia) , Weinreich made his debut as a Yiddish writer at the age of 13, and became a contributor to various Yiddish, Russian, German, and later English publications. After studying at the universities of St. Petersburg and Berlin, he completed a doctoral thesis on the history of Yiddish philology at the University of Marburg. Early in his career Weinreich became a prominent educator in various capacities, ranging from the teaching of Yiddish literature at the Vilna Yiddish Teachers’ Seminary to serving as leader of a Yiddish scouting movement, Di Bin. He was instrumental in giving Yiddish linguistics a solid, scholarly footing. Co-founder with Nokhem Shtif, Elias Tcherikover, and Zalmen Rejzen of the YIVO Institute, and YIVO’s guiding spirit, he was largely responsible for its achieving a worldwide reputation. As director of YIVO’s Research Training Division and organizer of its graduate school, Weinreich successfully educated young Yiddish scholars, among them, his son, Uriel Weinreich. At the World Congress of Linguistics in Copenhagen, he lectured on “Yiddish as an Object of General Linguistics, ” and in 1940, he immigrated with his son Uriel to the U. S. , where he became the country’s first university professor of Yiddish, teaching Yiddish language, literature, and folklore at the College of the City of New York and Columbia University, while serving as the scholarly director of YIVO. Weinreich’s wide array of books and studies include his magnum opus, Geshikhte fun der Yidisher Shprakh, the culmination of a half century of research on Yiddish sociolinguistics, tracing the thousand-year development of Ashkenazi culture and the Yiddish language as integral to the Jewish way of life. He studied the development of Yiddish from its origins in Germany, through Eastern Europe and into the second diaspora, creating the basic concepts and theoretical tools of the linguistic study of Jewish languages. Prominent among his other works are Hitlers Profesorn- probably the best documented indictment of German scholarship during the Nazi regime; Shturemvint, sketches on 17th-century Jewish history; Bilder fun der Yidisher Literatur-Geshikhte; Der Veg tsu Undzer Yugnt, a socio-psychological study of Jewish youth in Eastern Europe; and Di Shvartse Pintelekh, a history of alphabets. Weinreich translated Homer, Freud, and Ernst Toller into Yiddish and edited the periodicals Yidishe Filologye, Filologishe Shriftn, Yivo-Bleter, and the critical edition of S. Ettinger’s works, N.

Book one only. “The Hitlerite Policy of Jewish-Destruction, in the years 1939-1945; an expression of German imperialism. ” At head of title: Yidisher Historisher Institut in Poyln. The author also published in 1955 a Yiddish volume concerning the ‘Remilitarization of West Germany and the Role of Hitler’s Generals’. Written by Artur Eisenbach (1906–1992) , a “Polish Jewish historian. Artur Eisenbach was one of the last representatives of a distinguished group of scholars who, in the years before World War I and in independent Poland between 1918 and 1939, laid the foundation for an investigation of the Polish Jewish past. … He was influenced primarily by the Marxist school of Jewish historians, in particular by Raphael Mahler and Emanuel Ringelblum (whose sister he married) . Eisenbach was an active member of the Yunger Historiker Krayz (Young Historians Circle) founded by Mahler and Ringelblum. Eisenbach spent World War II in the Soviet Union, but his wife and child were trapped in Buczacz, where they were murdered by the Nazis in 1942. After his return to Poland in May 1946, he worked at the Central Historical Commission of the Central Committee of Polish Jews. When the Jewish Historical Institute was established later that year, he was appointed head of its archives, and subsequently became a researcher. In the decade following the war, Eisenbach devoted himself entirely to studying the Holocaust. Later he gradually returned to the theme that he had devoted himself to before the war—Jewish emancipation in the first half of the nineteenth century. In 1966, he became a member of the Committee for the Historical Sciences at the Polish Academy of Sciences and was awarded the title of professor. In the same year, he was appointed director of the Jewish Historical Institute. In 1968, Eisenbach was forced to resign his latter position, and retained only his title at the Polish Academy of Sciences. He decided not to emigrate and in the following years produced a series of monographs on Polish Jewish problems in the first half of the nineteenth century, research that formed the essential basis for future work on this subject. He also continued to work on Holocaust themes, editing Ringelblum’s diary and essay on Polish–Jewish relations. In his last years, he moved to Israel, where he had a nephew and where, active as ever, he worked on an account of Polish–Jewish relations in the nineteenth century. ” (Yivo Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe) .

Original Wraps. 8vo. 91 pages. 20 cm. First edition. In German. 'The Future of the Jews. ' A controversial work on the economic position of diaspora Jewry. Werner Sombart (1863–1941) , “German political economist and sociologist. Born in Ermsleben, Sombart acquired a reputation through his work Der Moderne Kapitalismus (2 vols. , 1902, 1916) in which he traced the development of capitalism from the late Middle Ages. In 1917 he was appointed professor of political economy at the University of Berlin. He wrote two works on capitalism and the Jews: Die Juden und das Wirtschaftsleben (1911; The Jews and Modern Capitalism, 1913, 1951) , and Die Zukunft der Juden (1912) which aroused considerable controversy. In Sombart's view, the Jews were the principal cause of the disruption of the medieval economic system and its replacement by capitalism. The Jews, he held, were foreigners and came up against the hostility of the guilds which controlled the commerce of the medieval cities. Consequently they sought to break away from the restrictive economic framework of city life and, by doing so, became the pioneers of international trade. In this way they helped to lay the foundation of the capitalist system. Sombart maintained that the Jewish intellect, 'concrete, stubborn, and systematic, ' was ideally suited to fostering a capitalist economy: 'When Israel appears upon the face of Europe, the place where it appears comes to life; and when it departs, everything which had previously flourished withers away. ' Such statements made for the ambivalent reception of Sombart's work among Jews at the time. Thus, while liberal Jews strongly criticized Sombart as an antisemite, others, particularly in the Zionist camp, praised him as a nonpartisan researcher and held up his theses as evidence of Jewish perseverance and as acknowledgement of the special contribution of the Jews. ” - EJ 2008.

Title page in English: “The life and writings of Dr. Philip Friedman: short bio-bibliographical survey. ” This memorial work outlines the biography and writings of the holocaust survivor and historian Dr. Phillip Friedman. From the Yivo Major Collections description of his work: “Historian Philip Friedman collected documentation on the Holocaust and wrote extensively on the subject. He served as the first director of the Central Jewish Historical Commission in Poland in the post-war period, as consultant to the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal, and as director of the YIVO-Yad Vashem bibliographical series on the Holocaust. His papers include eyewitness accounts collected from Holocaust survivors by the Central Jewish Historical Commission in Poland. ” From a New York Times Article (“Holocaust Historian” written by Lucy S. Dawidowicz; January 11, 1981) : “In July 1944 Philip Friedman was one of a mere thousand survivors of the 150, 000 Jews of his native Lvov. Before the war he had already become known as a historian of Polish Jewry, but thenceforth, until his death in New York at 59 in 1960, he dedicated himself to the history of the Jews in that crucible of death which we now call the holocaust. […] Philip Friedman has rightfully been called the father of holocaust history. Except for Emanuel Ringelblum, who did not survive the war, Friedman was the first to organize the collecting of records about Jewish life and death under German wartime occupation. Friedman stimulated survivors to write memoirs and urged them to gather letters, photographs, relics and any remains that would serve future historians. Subjects: Friedman, Philip, 1901-1960.

(FT) Original Wrappers. 12mo. 79 pages. 17 cm. Undated edition. In Yiddish. “Song of the Murdered Jewish People" by Itzhak Katzenelson (1885–1944) , a Hebrew and Yiddish poet. ”Katzenelson’s world fell apart when in August 1942 his wife Hanna and two younger sons, Ben-Tsiyon and Binyamin, were deported to Treblinka. From then on, his literary creativity was piercingly shaped by lamentations over the loss of his family. Nonetheless, with his oldest son, Tsevi, he found the strength to join the Jewish Fighting Organization and took part in the first uprising of January 1943. After the ghetto was destroyed in April and May 1943, he escaped to the Aryan section of Warsaw and obtained a Honduran identity document. Nevertheless, he was sent to a German detention camp for foreign subjects in Vittel, France. He was imprisoned there until April 1944, and devoted most of his time to writing. Two important works were produced during that period: Pinkas Vitel (The Vittel Diary) , a Hebrew composition that uses the language of an incensed diarist and reconstructs the days of terror in Warsaw during the mass deportations; and Dos lid fun oysgehargetn yidishn folk (The Poem about the Murdered Jewish People) , a pathos-filled Yiddish poem that laments the destruction of the Jewish people and of the poet himself, who has been become bitterly angry with humankind and God. These two works are among the boldest and most lofty literary expressions to emerge from the Holocaust. … All of Katzenelson’s works from his Vittel period were either buried in hiding places or were given to people he trusted; consequently, they were saved and published shortly after the end of the war. In the middle of April 1944, Katzenelson and his son Tsevi were sent to the Drancy transit camp, and from there one month later to Auschwitz, where they were murdered. In 1950, the Ghetto Fighters kibbutz built a museum and an institute for research about the Holocaust that bear Yits?

1st edition. Original stiff paper wrappers. 8vo. 100 pages, 21 cm. In Yiddish. Title translates to “Exodus 1947: Leave Europe 707." On July 18, 1947, on a wharf in Haifa as the ship “Exodus 1947” limped into harbor. The evening before, this unarmed ship, crammed with more than 4,500 Holocaust survivors, had been rammed and boarded by sailors of the British Navy to prevent her desperate human cargo from seeking refuge in Palestine. The epic was famously documents by journalist Ruth Gruber who rushed to the scene and began witnessing the events as they unfolded, ultimately spending the next several months pursuing the exiles from port to port on the Mediterranean. Gruber’s quest produced riveting dispatches and vivid photographs published in the New York Herald Tribune and the New York Post that shaped worldwide perception of the plight of the DPs and arguably influenced the U.N. to create the state of Israel. The story was novelized by Leon Uris as "Exodus." Moshe Kalchheim (1915-1996) was a Jewish partisan in Poland during WWII. He ultimately wound up in Israel in 1961 (Yiddish Leksikon, 2019). SUBJECTS: Jews—Palestine—History-Jewish refugees. OCLC lists 17 copies worldwide (OCLC:23464123). Inscribed by author in 1988. Very good condition. (YID-33-57-L-'ex), yid, holo zionism

Publishers Boards. 8vo. 118pages. 24cm. First edition. Using modern social theory, David Brenner examines how German-Jewish identity was influenced by the production and consumption of popular culture. Part of the “Routledge Jewish Studies Series. ” “David A. Brenner examines how Jews in Central Europe developed one of the first ‘ethnic’ or ‘minority’ cultures in modernity. Not exclusively ‘German’ or ‘Jewish, ’ the experiences of German-speaking Jewry in the decades prior to the Third Reich and the Holocaust were also negotiated in encounters with popular culture, particularly the novel, the drama and mass media. Despite recent scholarship, the misconception persists that Jewish Germans were bent on assimilation. Although subject to compulsion, they did not become solely ‘German, ’ much less ‘European. ’ Yet their behavior and values were by no means exclusively ‘Jewish, ’ as the Nazis or other anti-Semites would have it. Rather, the German Jews achieved a peculiar synthesis between 1890 and 1933, developing a culture that was not only ‘middle-class’ but also ‘ethnic. ’ In particular, they reinvented Judaic traditions by way of a hybridized culture. Based on research in German, Israeli and American archives, German-Jewish Popular Culture before the Holocaust addresses many of the genres in which a specifically German-Jewish identity was performed, from the Yiddish theatre and Zionist humour all the way to sensationalist memoirs and Kafka’s own kitsch. This middle-class ethnic identity encompassed and went beyond religious confession and identity politics. In focusing principally on German-Jewish popular culture, this groundbreaking book introduces the beginnings of ‘ethnicity’ as we know it and live it today. ” (Publisher’s description. ) Subjects: Jews in popular culture -- Germany -- History -- 20th century.

In the 1920s, Yiddish language was officially recognized and in 1924 but in the 1930s, the use of Yiddish was curtailed and all Jewish cultural activities were suspended before World War II. Most civilians from areas near the border did not have a chance to evacuate when the Nazis began their invasion on June 22, 1941. An "extermination" unit was established in Berdychiv in early July 1941 and a Jewish ghetto was set up. It was liquidated on October 5, 1941, after all the inhabitants were murdered. The Nazis killed about 20, 000 to 30, 000 Jews who had not evacuated Berdychiv. SUBJECTS: Jews -- Ukraine -- Berdychiv -- Anecdotes. Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) -- Ukraine -- Berdychiv.

In a spare and tragicomic style, they illuminate the small and large absurdities that arise at the limits of human endurance—from the cooking of "roast meat" made of cabbage leaves to the predicament of Jews forced to cooperate in the hierarchy of their own annihilation. Deceptively simple and often humorous, these stories nevertheless mirror Bryks's nuanced view of major moral dilemmas of the period: action vs. Inaction, preserving dignity vs. Survival.

Between 1919 and 1939 Alter was one of the prominent leaders of the Bund and Jewish trade unions in Poland. He was a Warsaw city councilor for almost 20 years, and after 1936 a member of the board of the Jewish community. After the Germans invaded Poland in September 1939, Alter escaped to the Russian-occupied zone. However, he was soon arrested with his associate, Henryk Erlich.

Title translates into English as, “History of Israelites in Brazil. ” Holocaust-era text about Brazilian Jews. “The history of the Jews in Brazil is a rather long and complex one, as it stretches from the very beginning of the European settlement in the new continent. Although only baptized Christians were subject to the Inquisition, Jews started settling in Brazil when the Inquisition reached Portugal, in the 16th century… After the first Brazilian constitution in 1824 that granted freedom of religion, Jews began to arrive gradually in Brazil. Many Moroccan Jews arrived in the 19th century, principally because of the rubber boom, settling on the Amazon, where their mixed-race descendants continue to live. Waves of Jewish immigration occurred first by Russian and Polish Jews escaping pogroms and the Russian Revolution, and then during the 1930s during the rise of Nazis in Europe. ” (Wikipedia, 2017) “Brazil admitted 96, 000 Jewish immigrants between 1918 and 1933, but only 12, 000 between 1933 and 1941.” (ushmm.org, 2017) SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- Brazil -- History.

8vo; 1st edition. Original illustrated red boards, 8vo, 342 pages. In Yiddish. Title translates as, "The destruction of Vilna." Kaczerginski (1908–1954) was a “Yiddish writer and cultural activist. Born in Vilna to a poor family and educated at that city’s Talmud Torah, Shmerke (Pol., Szmerke) Kaczerginski lost both his parents during World War I. As a youth, he was involved with outlawed Communist groups and was arrested several times, serving a lengthy prison term. In the 1930s, two of his revolutionary poems became popular in Poland. He wrote short stories with a radical bent and was a correspondent and reporter for literary publications, including the semilegal leftist press in Poland and the New York Communist daily Morgn-frayhayt. Kaczerginski played a key role in shaping the writers’ and artists’ group Yung-Vilne; he organized its evening events and was the de facto publisher of its three miscellanies between 1934 and 1936. During the period of Soviet control over Lithuania in 1940–1941, he was even more active in the field of Yiddish culture, but at the same time experienced his first disappointments with the attitude of the Soviet regime toward Jewish culture. During the first period of Nazi occupation, Kaczerginski wandered through villages and towns posing as a deaf mute; after many difficulties, he ended up in the Vilna ghetto. Kaczerginski was very involved in the ghetto’s cultural activities. As a leader of its youth club, he wrote its Yugnt-himen (Youth Hymn), a song that immediately became popular. In 1943, he wrote the song “Shtiler, shtiler” in memory of the mass murders committed at Ponar. Set to music that Aleksander Volkoviski (later known as Aleksander Tamir) had submitted to a contest organized by the ghetto, the song was first heard at an evening performance there and over the years became one of the best-known songs of the Holocaust. With Avrom Sutzkever and others, Kaczerginski became part of a group of forced laborers whom the Germans designated to sort Jewish cultural treasures at YIVO and other locations. Known as the Papir-brigade (Paper Brigade), the group’s members risked their lives to hide the most significant items, smuggling them back into the ghetto or entrusting them to non-Jewish acquaintances. Kaczerginski was a member of the Fareynikte Partizaner Organizatsye (United Partisans Organization; FPO), and, since YIVO’s building was located outside the ghetto walls, he took part in smuggling weapons into the ghetto. In September 1943, Kaczerginski, along with Avrom and Freydke Sutzkever and other members of the FPO, escaped from the Vilna ghetto as part of an organized group of fighters just before its liquidation. They joined a Soviet partisan unit in the Naroch Forests, where Kaczerginski fought as a partisan until liberation in July 1944. Kaczerginski’s books describe the destruction of Vilna, the partisan struggle, and his own experiences during the Holocaust period: Khurbn Vilne (The Destruction of Vilna; 1947), Partizaner geyen (Partisans on the Move; 1947), and Ikh bin geven a partizan (I Was a Partisan; 1952)” (YIVO, 2010).

Original Cloth. 8vo. [1], 132 pages. 22 cm. Kitsur Shulhan Arukh (Code of Jewish Law) , printed in Basle, Switzerland, ostensibly for Jewish refugees there. The Kitsur Shulhan Arukh by Solomon ben Joseph Ganzfried (1804–1886) , Hungarian rabbi and author. “His most famous work is the Kitsur [Abridged] Shulhan ‘arukh (1864) , a text that summarizes, in simple, straightforward language, the main practical religious commandments to be observed in everyday life. Ganzfried states in his introduction that his primary sources, in addition to Yosef Karo’s Shulhan ‘arukh itself, were the halakhic works of the rabbis Ya‘akov Lorbeerbaum of Lissa (Leszno) , Shneur Zalman of Liady, and Avraham Danzig, and whenever their opinions divided, he concurred with the majority ruling. The Kitsur Shulhan ‘arukh was very popular during Ganzfried’s lifetime; indeed, it was one of the most widely accepted halakhic books for the religious public. Dozens of editions were printed, and the book was translated more than once into English, Yiddish, French, German, and Hungarian. Various commentaries on the Kitsur were written as well—although Ganzfried had opposed this, as he wished to retain the concise format of his original version. ” - YIVO Encyclopedia.

The killings were committed by the Einsatzgruppe A, and the Wehrmacht. Latvian collaborators, including the 500–1, 500 members of the Arajs Commando (which alone killed around 26, 000 Jews]) and other Latvian members of the SD, were also involved. 30, 000 Jews were shot in the autumn of 1941 with most of the remaining Jewish people being rounded up and put into ghettos. In November and December 1941 the Riga Ghetto became crowded and to make room for the imminent arrival of German Jews, who were being shipped out of the country, all the remaining 30, 000 Jews in Riga were taken from the ghetto to the nearby Rumbula Forest and shot” (Wikipedia, 2016) .

Edition: First Edition
Binding: Paperback
1st Yiddish edition. Original illustrated paper wrappers. 12mo. 95 pages, 14 cm. In Yiddish with some Russian. Title translates to “Lublin Extermination-Camp Majdanek.” Soviet war correspondent and poet Konstantin Simonov’s booklet on the atrocities of the Majdanek camp, published simultaneously in several languages, was only the second monograph published on the atrocities at Majdanek. Simonov (1915-1979) was a highly decorated poet, novelist, playright, and war correspondent whose works were widely known (Wikipedia, 2018) . A Polish-Soviet Special Criminal Court was established in Lublin in August 1944 in order to investigate the Nazi crimes in the Majdanek extermination camp, with Simonov covering the proceedings as the basis for this work. The Majdanek concentration camp was established on Heinrich Himmler's order and operated from October 1, 1941 until it was liberated by the Soviet Army on July 22, 1944. It is known to be the best preserved Nazi concentration camp of the Holocaust, as the Germans did not have enough time to destroy the evidences of their crimes. The Commission for investigating the German crimes was established in August 1944 and soon they published this booklet in several languages. Despite of the importance of this statement it must be mentioned that the Commission made many erroneous assumptions regarding the duration of the camp or number of people killed at Majdanek, probably because they were motivated rather by political and propaganda agenda than by a search for historical facts. The total number of the victims is still controversial, in this report 1.5 million victims of different nationalities were counted, however according to the latest researches there were 79, 000 victims, 59, 000 of whom were Jews.

The 500-page supplement contains information on over 2, 000 bibliographies published between 1965 and 1975. In his introduction Shunami notes that this number compares with that for the first hundred years of the Wissenchaft des Judentums. He comments on the rapid growth of bibliographies relating to the Holocaust and to the State of Israel. On the other hand, the small number of entries related to Hebrew printing is a reflection of the decline of study of this subject with little extra interest having been aroused by the 500th anniversary of Hebrew printing. There is also a decrease in entries relating to private collections, reflecting a decline in major Jewish book collectors. Shunami also decries the shortage of Jewish bibliographers. “ (EJ 2008; Bibliography) . Subjects: Bibliography - Bibliography - Jewish literature. Bibliography - Bibliography - Jews.

1st edition. Original cloth. 4to, 307 pages. Yiddish. “The shtetl of Gliniany once played a large role in Polish history. A decree of the Polish kingdom is found in the archives of the Gliniany community. The decree announced that the city of Gliniany was to be referred to as the “Royal Free City of Gliniany. ” The wordsKrolewstwo Wolny Miasto Gliniany are engraved on the seal of the city hall. Due to the privilege of appearing in the king's decree, the nobleman who owned the city no longer had the right to force residents of Gliniany to work for him as forced laborers. After the death of the Polish king, Casirmirz the Great, Polish senators traveled to Hungary and crowned King Ludwig of Hungary as king of Poland. The senators gave him the gift of the entirety of Galicia, which in those days was calledCherwony Rus [Red Russia], which was a part of Poland. When the issue became known in the kingdom of Poland, it caused tremendous dissatisfaction. In Gliniany a large meeting was held, which subsequently led to a political trial, because of the actions of the senators. Ludwig attended the trial together with a regiment of Hungarian hussars. The result of the trial was the beheading of seven Polish senators. In Polish history, the trial was known as ‘The Tragedy of Gliniany. ’ Many years ago there was a large district that covered a large territory. On one side there were fields and forests that extended all the way to the village of Khonochovka, near the city of Premyshlan. On the other side forests and fields stretched all the way to just south of Lemberg. Over time, the size of the territory that had belonged to the city declined, and in the 18th century the city of Gliniany, together with the neighboring gentile regions, included an area of approximately nine square miles. ” (translation from book) SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- Ukraine, Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) , Ethnic relations.

Softbound. 8vo. 182, [4] pages. 22 cm. First Belorussian edition. Title translates as: “The Minsk ghetto; Soviet-Jewish partisans against the Nazis. ” In Belorussian, With four pages of black and white photographic plates. Hersh Smolar (1905–1993) , was a “Polish and Soviet Yiddish writer and editor. Born to a poor family in the town of Zambrów, Poland, Hersh Smolar (also rendered Smolyar) attended primary school until the age of 11, when he began working, and soon became involved in revolutionary activities. He was a leader of the local branch of the Jewish Socialist Youth Association from 1918 to 1920. During the 1920 Polish–Soviet War, Smolar belonged to a revolutionary committee that had formed in Zambrów when the Red Army had occupied the town. Smolar fled to Soviet Russia in 1921, initially living in Kiev. He moved to Moscow two years later, after being admitted to the Yiddish department at the Communist University for the Peoples of the West (known in Yiddish as Mayrevke) , one of the universities run by the Comintern. Forced to interrupt his studies the next year, Smolar was dispatched to Khar’kiv (then the Ukrainian capital) , where he was given the task of reinforcing the local Yiddish-speaking Communist cadre. He helped to edit the newspaper Yunge gvardye (Young Guard) , which targeted Yiddish-speaking youth. He returned to Moscow in 1926 and continued his studies at the Communist University, coediting its Yiddish journal Mayrevnik (Student of the Mayrevke) . Smolar served as a Comintern agent in Poland from 1928 to 1939; twice arrested, he spent six years in prison. After World War II began, he fled to Bialystok (then in Soviet-occupied territory) , where he gained prominence among refugee Polish Yiddish writers and as editor of the Communist newspaper Byalistoker shtern (Bialystok Star) . Smolar did not manage to evacuate when Germany attacked the Soviet Union in 1941. A leading member of the resistance in the Minsk ghetto, he became commissar of a partisan group operating in Belorussian forests. His wartime memoirs, Fun Minsker geto (From the Minsk Ghetto) , were published by Emes in Moscow in 1946. Smolar and his wife, Walentyna Najdus, subsequently returned to Poland, where he held key positions in the Jewish community as chair of the Jewish Cultural Alliance and editor of the Yiddish newspaper Folks-shtime. He published a collection of partisan stories, Yidn on gele lates (Jews without Yellow Patches; 1948) , and the play A posheter zelner (An Ordinary Soldier; 1952) . His Folks-shtime editorial ‘Undzer veytik un undzer treyst’ (Our Pain and Our Comfort; 4 April 1956) , which was reprinted all over the world, became the first semiofficial source of information on the liquidation of Soviet Yiddish cultural institutions and their leading personalities between 1948 and 1952. Indeed, this editorial triggered a radical decline in the number of Yiddish-language organizations that supported the Soviet Union. As a result of the 1968 anti-Jewish campaign and the involvement of his sons (Aleksander [1940– ] and Eugeniusz) in dissident student circles, Smolar acknowledged that his life in Poland had become untenable. He left for Israel in 1971.” (YIVO Encyclopedia) Subjects: Jews - Persecutions - Belarus - Minsk. Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) - Belarus - Minsk - Personal narratives.

Original Stiff Wrappers. 12mo. 158 pages. 20 cm. First edition. In Spanish. “Neruda and Sutzkever: Two Rebel Poets” written by Gregory Sapoznikow; translation of the original Yiddish by Itsjok Niborski. This work by the Argentinian Yiddish literary critic and psychoanalyst Gregory Sapoznikow constitutes a dual biography and literary interpretation of parallel experiences of both poets, Sutzkever and Neruda, namely, the strength and poetic development of two partisans in the fight against fascism. Includes translations of select poems by Abraham Sutzveker into Spanish. Although Abraham Sutzkever was born in Lithuania in 1913, he spent his early childhood in Siberia. During World War II he fought against the Germans with the partisans, helped save national cultural treasures and was evacuated from Vilna to Moscow in the middle of the war. Sutzkever immigrated to Israel in 1947, and has earned the title of that country’s foremost Yiddish poet. He founded the Yiddish literary quarterly, Di goldene keyt (The Golden Chain) in 1948. Never forgetting his country and the annihilation of his people in Europe, Sutzkever’s writing continues to demonstrate the historical events of the past. He has received the highest literary prizes of both Lithuania and Israel. His poetry and fiction have been translated into many languages, including Hebrew, French, English, German, Russian, Polish and Japanese. Born in 1904 in Chile, Pablo Neruda began writing poetry at an early age and had his first poem published at the age of thirteen. Neruda is best known as a poet, but he served as a consul for the Chilean government and traveled on behalf of the government to Burma, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Singapore, Argentina and Spain. Neruda’s close friend, García Lorca, was murdered during the Spanish Civil War and his death affected him greatly. In response to Lorca’s murder, Neruda joined the Republican movement in Spain and later in France. In 1939, he was appointed consul for the Spanish emigration in France, and soon after sent to Mexico. There he rewrote his Canto General de Chile, an epic poem about South America. In 1945 he was elected a senator. He openly opposed the then repressive government of Chile and was forced to live underground in his own country for several years. He managed to leave in 1949, but returned in 1952. Throughout his lifetime Neruda continued to write. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971. He died in 1973. Subjects: Neruda, Pablo, 1904-1973 - Criticism and interpretation. Sutzkever, Abraham, 1913-2010 - Criticism and interpretation. Lightly shelf wear. Very good condition.

This issue contains a calendar of the days and holidays for the year (In Hungarian and Yiddish) , and extensive literary (poems, letters, short stories) and journalistic pieces by dozens of writers and editors from the Budapest community. For many of these authors, this would be their last published work. “[T]he Germans occupied the country on 19 March 1944, Gestapo chief Adolf Eichmann set up his SS command in Budapest, and the Budapest Jewish Council was established. What had been an extended process of stigmatization, ghettoization, deportation, and murder elsewhere was greatly concentrated and executed with great efficiency and speed in Hungary. The deportation and gassing of almost 440, 000 provincial Jews at Auschwitz-Birkenau began in mid-May and was swiftly accomplished by July as a result of full cooperation of the Hungarian authorities. Only intense diplomatic pressure threatening harsh postwar retribution caused Regent Horthy to call a halt to the deportations on 6 July, giving Budapest Jewry a temporary reprieve. In Budapest, a series of measures increasingly placed limitations on Jews who remained in the capital. Restrictions were placed on using the public transport; later telephones, bicycles, and cars were confiscated, and an evening curfew was imposed. From 3 April, all persons defined as Jews were obligated to wear a yellow star on their outer clothing… The reverses suffered by the Germans emboldened Horthy to announce in mid-October his intention to withdraw Hungary from the war. With German backing, Ferenc Szálasi and his Arrow Cross Party seized power on 15 October. Budapest’s Jews were now threatened by a far more vicious regime whose radical antisemitic ideology was wholly in tune with Hitler’s apocalyptic vision. Forced death marches began on 20 October and along with German deportations, affected some 75, 000 Budapest Jews. The city rapidly descended into chaos as roving Arrow Cross bands combed the streets rounding up Jews. The first murders in the streets began on 12 November; the first executions took place by the riverbank on 23 November. “ (YIVO Encyclopedia) Subjects: Jews - Hungary - Periodicals. Jewish almanacs.

Until the Second World War, like many other cities in Europe, Siedlce had a significant Jewish population. At some times, indeed, Jews were the majority of its population. In 1939, Jews constituted some 37% of the town's population. In March 1941 - still before the formal decision to implement the "Final Solution" which meant the wholesale extermination of the Jews - German Orpo battalions rampaged for three days in Siedlce, killing many of its Jewish inhabitants. In August of the same year the Jews were forced into the new Siedlce Ghetto. It consisted of several small city blocks and over a dozen walkable streets in the city centre. On 1 October 1941 the ghetto was completely cut off from the outside world. In August 1942 some 10, 000 Siedlce Jews were deported to Treblinka and murdered there together with a similar number of Jews from three nearby transit ghettos: in Losice, holding local Jews and families from Huszlew, Olszanka, and Swiniarów; in Sarnaki, with Jews from Górki, Kornica, Lysów; and the third transit ghetto with prisoners from Mordy, Krzesk-Królowa Niwa, Przesmyki, Stok Ruski, and Tarków. The town's remaining Jews imprisoned at the "little ghetto" were sent off to extermination on November 25, 1942. SUBJECTS: Jews -- Poland -- Siedlce.

(FT) Publishers cloth. 8vo. 144 pages. 24 cm. First edition. In Yiddish. inscribed in Yiddish on first page by the author. On verso of title page: For the sanctification of God's name. “Between his 1939 book of Yiddish poetry, ‘Yung Grin Mai’ (‘Young Green May’) and his caustic novella, ‘A Cat in the Ghetto, lay the Holocaust: Skaryýsko-Kamienna, where Rachmil Bryks was born in 1912; Lodz, to which he was deported; Auschwitz, which he survived, and, ultimately, New York — where he died in 1974, though later interred in Jerusalem. ‘A Cat in the Ghetto, ’ recently republished by Persea Books, first appeared in 1952 under the more unnerving title ‘Oyf Kidesh Hashem, ’ meaning, ‘In Sanctification of the Name, ’ but expressing, also, the pious euphemism for martyrdom. Like fellow survivor Yehiel De-Nur, who, writing under his camp name and number Ka-tzetnik 135633, called the gas chambers the ‘inner sanctum of the Temple of Auschwitz, ’ Bryks displays and proclaims like a 20th-century prophet. In his novellas, the tattooing needle of Auschwitz trails a thread tied, at one end, to the Book of Lamentations, which sanctified the destruction of a Jewish way of life in mourning the loss of a symbolic Temple, thereafter endlessly transformed. … Bryks took the litany of Lamentations as inspiration for the secular litany of his ghetto experience between 1939 and 1944. (Compared with the ghetto years, Auschwitz occupies a brief place in his collected works, which also include a novel, ‘The Paper Crown, ’ and stories from the beginning of the war. ) But whereas younger writers like these sacrificed everything to render literature true to experience, Bryks, writing in a very native Yiddish, clung fast to his roots in the Book of Prophets, Sholom Aleichem, the midrash, the folktale and the megillot. Bryks, who in photographs resembles a Polish vaudevillian, considered himself a survivor of neither the Holocaust nor the Shoah, but rather as one passed over by the ‘Khurbn, ’ which came only for the Yidn. In his essay ‘My Credo, ’ he wrote, ‘I want to emphasize that our Khurbn period includes also the spiritual khurbn in the Soviet Union during the Stalin era — the destruction of the Jewish word, the slaughter of Yiddish writers, actors, artists, teachers and others engaged in the field of Yiddish culture. ’ According to his daughters, the mamaloshn was the only tongue tolerated in their home on New York City’s Upper West Side, where, in contrast to the tortured linguistic contortions of German-language poet Paul Celan in Paris, Bryks wrote steadily at the kitchen table by day and met Isaac Bashevis Singer, Itzik Manger and Avrum Reisen for tea at the Garden Cafeteria. ” (From “A Yiddish Cat Still Laughing After Hot, Black Fire” by Daniel Elkind; published March 11, 2009, issue of March 20, 2009; Jewish Daily Forward) .

Title translates as ”Poland: A Poem.” Menahem Boraisha (Menahem Goldberg; sometimes simply Menahem ; 1888–1949) was a “Yiddish poet and essayist. Born in Brest-Litovsk… At the age of 16 he joined the Socialist Zionists and began to write poetry in Russian and Yiddish. In Warsaw from 1905, he received encouragement from I.L. Peretz, publishing his first poems in Yiddish journals, and drama reviews for the daily Haynt. While serving in the Russian Army (1909–11), he published his impressions of barrack-life in both Haynt and Fraynd. His poem ‘Poyln’ (‘Poland, 1914) [this work] expressed the tense relationship between Jews and Poles. He settled in the U.S. in 1914, and in 1918 joined the editorial board of the Yiddish daily, Der Tog. His book of poems A Ring in der Keyt ("A Link in the Chain," 1916) was followed by Zamd ("Sand," 1920), a collection which included a memorable poem on Theodor Herzl.

The grand epic memoir of Yekhiel Yeshaye Trunk (1887–1961) ; which he began as soon as arriving in New York in 1941, it took a decade to complete. “Trunk’s broad political, social, and cultural experiences informed his autobiographical epic Poyln, a study of the decline of the upper strata of Polish Jewish society and the rise of a new secular Jewishness embodied in folklore, Yiddish literature, and the Bund. This work, his crowning achievement, focused almost entirely on the multifaceted collectivity of Polish Jewry, while relegating his personal story and inner struggle to the sideline. ” (YIVO Encyclopedia) . Trunk was the chief archivist of YIVO at the time of his death, and was considered, in an obituary published in the New York Times, “one of the leading historians in the United States on the destruction of European Jewry during the Nazi era. ” Seven volume set, bound in green cloth with gilt title.

Book of Holocaust poetry published just after the Holocaust by one of the greatest 20th-century Hebrew and Yiddish poets. Leah Orent notes that "On Tisha b'Av, the day of collective mourning for Jewish national disasters both ancient and modern, it has become customary to read Holocaust literature. Greenberg's Rehovot ha-Nahar is an epic Holocaust lamentation, published in 1951. Reading a representative selection from the text, we…. Examine how the poet's private voice merges with that of his persona as spokesperson for the Jewish people, addressing a silent God in heaven and confronting the murderers on earth. We…consider the speaker's struggle to balance the guilt of a survivor with his sense of prophetic vocation. Ultimately, the collection articulates a vision of Jewish history flowing like an eternal river from Abraham to Sinai through the horrors of the Holocaust towards the revival of the kingdom of Israel and messianic redemption" (2014) .

Catalog of two exhibitions, Return to Vilna I and Return to Vilna II, held between 31 August and 20 November, 2002 at Pucker Gallery, Boston, Mass. With 67 full color illustrations. Samuel Bak “was born in Vilna. A few years later the area was incorporated into the independent republic of Lithuania. He was eight when the Germans occupied the city. Bak began painting while still a child and, prompted by the well-known Yiddish poet Abraham Sutzkever, held his first exhibition (in the Vilna ghetto) in 1942 at the age of nine. From the ghetto the family was sent to a labor camp on the outskirts of the city. Bak's father managed to save his son by dropping him in a sack out of a ground floor window of the warehouse where he was working; he was met by a maid and brought to the house where his mother was hiding. His father was shot by the Germans in July 1944, a few days before Soviet troops liberated the city. His four grandparents had earlier been executed at the killing site outside Vilna called Ponary. After the war, the young Bak continued painting at the Displaced Persons camp in Landsberg, Germany (1945–48) , where he also studied painting in Munich. In 1948, he and his mother immigrated to Israel, where he studied for a year at the Bezalel Art School in Jerusalem. After fulfilling his military service, he spent three years (1956–59) at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He then moved to Rome (1959–66) , returned to Israel (1966–74) , and lived for a time in New York City (1974–77) . There followed further years in Israel and Paris, then a long stay in Switzerland (1984–93) . From 1993 Bak lived and worked outside Boston, in Weston, Massachusetts. ” (EJ 2007) Subjects: Bak, Samuel - Exhibitions. Holocaust Art - Vilna. OCLC lists 21 copies.

5704 (1944). Original blank paper wrappers. 8vo. 64 pages. 21 cm. Reprinted in early 1944 for Jewish refugees in Switzerland with some additional notations. In Hebrew and German in parallel columns (with diacritic vowel marks under the Hebrew, and with Yiddish translation between Hebrew). Original 1938 title page, with verso 1944 German title page: “Den jüdischen Flüchtlingen in der Schweiz; Zur Feier des [Pesakh]-Festes im Jahre 5704; überreicht vom Schweizerischen Israelitischen Gemeindebund.” (For the Jewish Refugees in Switzerland; For the celebration of Pesakh in the year 5704; presented by the Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities). Copyright by Lehrberger & Co. of Frankfurt. A European-published hagada from the darkest period of the Holocaust, produced specifically for those feeling the inferno. During 1943 and 1944, the extermination camps were working at a furious rate to kill the hundreds of thousands of people shipped to them by rail from almost every country within the German sphere of influence, and by the spring of 1944, up to 8,000 people were being gassed every day at Auschwitz (USHMM, 2012). Passover 1944 began on April 8, the day that the roundups of the Jews of Carpatho-Ruthenia and northern Hungary started. On April 14, the last day of the Holiday, László Endre & László Baky (German-installed heads of the Ministry of the Interior) and Eichmann made the official decision to deport all the Jews of Hungary. With ten illustrations; an early 19th century German Orthodox Haggadah originally compiled by Wolf Heidenheim in 1822. Published for German-Jewish refugees in Switzerland under the auspices of the Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities, founded in 1904 to help protect the general interest of Jews in Switzerland; during the second world war, the Federation helped support the refugee community in Switzerland: “Prior to and during the Second World War, Switzerland gave refuge to about 23,000 Jewish refugees although the government decided that Switzerland would serve only as a country of transit. These Jews were protected during the Holocaust due to Swiss neutrality. The Jewish refugees, however, did not receive the financial support from the government that non-Jewish refugees received. Many more Jews were prevented from entering, effectively shutting the border.“ (Jewish Virtual Library; Switzerland). The publishers, Goldschmidt, issued an earlier printing in 1940 (listed in one library on OCLC), no copies of this issue (1944) listed in libraries on oclc. Subjects: Haggada shel Pesah.

Let all of them get an idea about the Hometown of their parents and relatives and together with them hold dear the memory of the small Jewish community, that went to martyrdom during the black period of the bestial Nazi rule. 6, 000, 000 Jews perished during the 2nd World War in Eastern and Central Europe. Many bigger and smaller towns were immortalized in memorial books. They stand out like living symbols, spiritual monuments for the coming generations. Our beloved Goniondz has surely earned such a monument. The Jewish Goniondz was very lively and interesting. The small Jewish population was very active, established many parties and clubs and gave to the world outstanding intellectuals in many fields, both Jewish and general. Citizens of Goniondz are spread out all over the world. The majority of them live in the United States and in Israel, where they have established many societies and cooperatives in the socio-philanthropic field, giving financial and moral support to needy townspeople. The Memorial-Book portrays to a great extent the manysided life of Goniondz before its destruction. ” (from book) SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- Poland -- Gonia? Dz. Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) .

Edition: First Edition
Binding: Hardcover
1st edition, original cloth, 8vo. 518 + 96 pages. In Hebrew and Yiddish with an English section. “Eight years have gone by since we first began preparations for this book on the Jewish community of Rozhan, until at long last it can be published now. It was a great effort made by a number of people devoted to the weighty and difficult task to erect a fitting memorial to our community. It is what other communities of Israel have done and no doubt it is the right thing to do for the people of the book. Rozhan was no different from other Jewish townships in Poland that are no more, but to us, who were born and grew up there, she has something unique. It is not only the landscape, the topographic situation on the high bank of the River Narew. It was also the Jews, who had been living at the place for generations, rebuilding it stubbornly and assiduously many times. In fact after each of the many wars that swept over the region, that lies on the road from Russia to Warsaw. Those were homely Jews of all social strata, orthodox and freethinkers, Zionists and anti-Zionists. Above all we have at heart the Jewish youth of Rozhan that took upon itself the task to redeem the world and the nation - and only few of them have reached the final haven of rest here in Israel, while others, of the few who did survive, have found shelter in the West and built their homes there. It is the intention of this book to keep our past alive and to preserve the shining memory of those who lived and were active there, to show that they were not anonymous and to describe their striving and struggling to maintain a definitely Jewish, religious, social and political existence. This book wants to tell future generations how the Jews of Rozhan created Jewish life in the midst of a hostile environment, how they built for themselves the framework of a society and filled it with deep-rooted national values, how they created their own institutions, that were able impose their authority - after democratically arrived at decisions with no governmental powers behind them. The book also wants to keep alive the old Jewish spirit maintained by our people everywhere, the rule ‘Jews stand by each other’ that found its expression in individual help as well as in organized assistance such as various mutual funds. The book is also meant as a memorial to the tragedy of our people. Jews of Rozhan had to run for their lives during the very first days of the war, and one after the other they fell as victims on the bloodstained roads of Poland. Some survived after having passed through the hell of exile in the vastness of Russia and Siberia and back; only a few were lucky enough to reach Israel and to build new homes here. The book contains about 600 pages and it reflects a collective effort. It was not easy to obtain the material, as there are next to no writers among our people. So we had to apply to as many of our townsfolk as possible in order to make them talk or write - those who did write were a minority and most contributions were given orally and had to be taken down. We endeavoured to get in touch with as many as possible and to give a rounded out picture of the town, its history, people and folklore, but we feel that in spite of all our efforts we could not note everything worth remembering. All we can say is that we have done our best to present a many-sided picture of everything that was human and Jewish and good. ” (from English preface) SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- Poland -- Ro´z?

Title translates to “Memorial Book for the 32 Communities in the Švenc?ionys Area.” The Lithuanian Holocaust began in 1941 following the German invasion of the Soviet Union. The population was about 250,000. In 1943, the Germans destroyed the Vilna and Svencionys ghettos, and converted the Kovno and Siauliai ghettos into concentration camps. Some 15,000 Lithuanian Jews were deported to labor camps in Latvia and Estonia. About 5,000 Jews were deported to killing centers in German-occupied Poland, where they were murdered. Shortly before withdrawing from Lithuania in the fall of 1944, the Germans deported about 10,000 Jews from Kovno and Siauliai to concentration camps in Germany (USHMM, 2019).

1st edition, original cloth, 4to. X + 377 pages, illustrations throughout. In Hebrew. English title: “Lomza- In Memory of the Jewish Community. ” “After the end of World War I, the ethnic structure changed significantly. After Orthodox Russians and German Protestants had left Lomza, it became a city of two religions, being inhabited by Catholic Poles and Jews. After regaining independence, Lomza reached the status of a county town in Bialystok Province (from 1939 on in Warsaw Province) . It was also the local centre of trade, crafts and industry, and also the seat of garrison at the same time. A few high school operated there, and what is more, the local press in Polish and Yiddish language was published. In 1925, Pope Pius XI made Lomza the capital of Lomza Diocese. After the outbreak of World War II, on 7 September 1939, Lomza was destroyed as a result of bombing. Three days later Germans entered the city. On 28 September 1939, the city was handed over to Red Army units. Lomza was incorporated into the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic. The occupiers transported to Siberia. When the war between the Germans and the Soviets began, on 22 June 1941, Lomza was bombarded by German Luftwaffe, while on 24 June – occupied by Wehrmacht. In July, the city and the whole land of Bialystok were subordinated to the Gauleiter of East Prussia. A ghetto was formed in August. Jewish inhabitants and refugees from other areas were relocated there. In September 1941 about 31, 000 Jews from the ghetto were sent before a firing squad; most of those who remained were killed in Treblinka and Auschwitz-Birkenau. During the war (fights on the line of the River Narew) , in winter 1944/1945, about 70 per cent of Lomza's buildings were destroyed. The reconstructed city was the centre of county in Bialystok Province to 1975, and next it was the capital of Lomza Province, existing to 1998, as a result of an administrative reform in 1975. In 2013, the city had a status of the centre of Lomza County and a city with county rights (so-called municipal county) . ” (sztelt.org 2018) SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- Poland -- Lomz? A -- History.

1st edition, original cloth, 8vo. 795 pages, illustrations throughout. In Hebrew and Yiddish. “ (Wednesday, 15th of Shvat 5700, December 27, 1939.) Thirty-five years have passed since that dark day when shots were fired, and the entire Jewish population left their hometown of Zgierz. On that day, confusion and terror enveloped the big and the small, the poor and the rich. Children lost their parents and parents searched for their children. The weeping and screaming could be heard on all of the streets. Driven to the old marketplace, with their packs over their shoulders, the Jews of Zgierz fled into the forests with the fear of death, that only the eyes that saw could believe. The largest group of them fled to Lodz, a smaller group went to Glowno, and only a very few set out and arrived in Warsaw. In their despair, the unfortunate souls could not imagine that all of the roads were leading to a strange ending, to death. Thus in one day did end the flourishing Jewish community of Zgierz, that numbered 5, 000 souls and was bound up with the city throughout the 200 year history with intertwined work for its growth and development. It ended – for not only were our holy shrines burnt, but the despicable people even desecrated the 150 year old cemetery and covered it over with earth, so that there would not remain even a memory of Jewish life on Zgierz soil. For us, the survivors, lies the great and holy duty to observe this memorial day and perpetuate it forever. This should be a day of memory and warning – for us and for our children. Just as we light the memorial candles for our martyrs, we also must not forget the curse and the eternal hate for the disgusting criminals and murderers of the Jewish people. We who remain in sorrow should find comfort in the work for those close to us, and in the work to perpetuate the memory of our martyrs – our parents, our brothers and sisters, relatives and friends – and the entire community of Zgierz. May their memory be blessed! ” (translated from book, Jewishgen 2018) SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- Poland -- Zgierz. Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) Ethnic relations. OCLC: 40705049.

Edition: First Edition
Binding: hardback
No date [1941-1944?]. Presume 1st edition, single fold pamphlet, 12mo, 4 pages. In Yiddish and Hebrew. Title translates as "Special Prayer." Exceedingly scarce Holocaust-era request by the Chicago Committee for Human Rights Against Nazism for special prayers to be said for the Jewish holiday of Shemini Azeret. The committee assures the reader that the call for special prayers is made in coordination with the Rabbis and with the support of the Chicago Jewish community: “Di spetsiele tefitah iz oysgeshtelt gevoren oyf dos forlang fun di shikago anti-nazi komite baym merkaz rabonim un vert geshikht tsu oykh mit der guthaysung fun die shikago kehilah mit der rekamendatsye az di tefilah zol gezont veren far Hazkhrot geshemot in tog fun Shemini Atzeret!” This Yiddish call to prayer and explanation fills the first page, while the middle two pages contain the prayer, and the rear panel notes, in Hebrew, that “The prayer is copied from the genius Hida za'l from his book Avodat HaKedesh. And save them from pasture and famine and captivity and plunder, from all fear and from sorrow, and the species and the zealots will subdue and play….” The result is clearly a religiously-oriented “Human Rights Against Nazism” request that was also hoping to also win participation from less observant Jews. With it’s dual Hebrew-Yiddish text, it’s assurances of support from the Rabbis and from the community, its explanation of the prayer, and it’s request in Yiddish to “please do not throw this prayer in the trash the pamphlet” the imprint is accessible to, and respectful of, both communities. Shemini Azeret is the Jewish Holiday which comes following Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur, arriving at the end of Sukkot and the day before Simchas Torah when the weekly reading of the Torah starts over again with Geneis (Berishis in Yiddish). A very interesting attempt from Chicago to thread the needle of appealing to religious and more secular (but Yiddish speaking, so not Reform) Jews in a joint effort to pray in response to Nazi atrocities in Europe. We could find no copies listed in OCLC nor specifically at YIVO, nor anywhere else. Perhaps a unique surviving copy.
