Edition: First Edition
Binding: Hardback
1st edition. Folio. Newspaper. Illustrated throughout. Includes many advertisements and numerous personal family announcements. Following the Kristallnacht pogroms of November 1938, Jewish life in Germany and Czechoslovakia was even further curtailed and all remaining Jewish newspapers were shut down by the government. In their place, the Nazi Party ordered the creation of a single, new Jewish newspaper, "Das Jüdische Nachrichtenblatt, " that would be directly under Gestapo control. It was published concurrently in Berlin, Vienna and Prague and was occupied to a large extent with announcing the ever-increasing number of anti-Semitic discriminations, orders and exclusions imposed by the Reich government. Over the course of its history, the editors of the Jüdische Nachrichtenblatt were Leo Kreindler (1938-42) and Willi Pless (1942-43) . The Berlin edition ran from the 23rd November, 1938 until the final issue of 4th June 1943. The Prague edition continued until 1945. In a ghoulish twist of Nazi irony, Gentiles were forbidden from reading the Jüdische Nachrichtenblatt yet the newspaper's targeted readership, the Jews, were literally hounded to their deaths by the very authorities who presided over the newspaper's ownership! See Reiner Burger, Von Goebbels Gnaden: "Jüdisches Nachrichtenblatt" 1938-1943 (2001) . A mixed collection of 102 issues from Berlin and Prague sold at auction in 2015 for 9225.00 USD.

1st Edition. Original black printed portfolio, 8vo. Portfolio of seven large folding maps on on 4 sheets of heavy paper (3 are double sided, 1 is singled sided). Primarily black and white with some color. Text in Polish. Title translates to, “Nazi camps in Poland 1939 - 1945. An Encyclopaedic Reference Book: Maps." Collection of 7 maps, each 84 cm x 60 cm (33 x 24 inches), produced by Jan Laskowski at the Main Commission for the Investigation of Nazi Crimes in Poland. The maps comprise Volume II of the work; Volume I is a heavily illustrated 676-page book of the same title, which we offer separately. The Seven maps (all present) are: - Map 1 [Single Sided]: Hitlerowskie obozy na ziemiach polskich w latach 1939 - 1945. [“Nazi camps in Poland in the years 1939 - 1945”]. Showing: concentration and extermination camps, sub-camps of concentration camps, extermination centers, POW camps, more important sub-camps, working divisions, commandos and temporary POW camps, penal labor camps, major labor camps, prisons, transit camps & ghettos. - Map 2A: Getta na ziemiach polskich w okresie okupacji hitlerowskiej w latach 1939 - 1945 [“Ghettos in Poland during the Nazi occupation in 1939 - 1945”]. - Map 2B: Hitlerowskie obozy przejsciowe na ziemiach polskich w latach 1939 - 1945 [“Nazi transit camps in Poland in 1939-1945”]. - Map 3A: Hitlerowskie wiezienia i areszty na ziemiach polskich w latach 1939 - 1945 [“Nazi prisons and arrests in Poland in 1939 - 1945”]. - Map 3B: Hitlerowskie obozy pracy na ziemiach polskich w latach 1939 - 1945 [“Nazi labor camps in Poland in the years 1939 - 1945”]. - Map 4A: Hitlerowskie obozy jenieckie na ziemiach polskich w latach 1939 - 1945 [“Nazi POW camps in Poland in 1939 - 1945”]. - Map 4B: Hitlerowskie obozy koncentracyjne i osrodki zaglady na ziemiach polskich w latach 1939 - 1945 [“Nazi concentration camps and extermination centers in Poland in 1939 - 1945”]. Maps 2A & 2B have been described as a “Terrifying pair of maps showing the locations of German POW and internment camps in Poland during World War II, highlighting the widespread locations of these establishments. In some parts of the map, the information becomes so dense that three inset maps are shown. This map was designed by Jan Laskowski and printed in 1979 as part of a work on the Nazi extermination machine produced by PWN Warsaw, a state-owned research-focused publishing house in Poland.The map on the front is particularly interesting for its depiction of symbols used to classify internees in German camps. The uppermost of these depictions shows the combinations that can be made for different types of prisoners of different levels of importance. The armbands that would have been worn by these prisoners is shown, as well as the prison uniforms. Other details are also shown. The map lists hundreds of sites run by Nazi operators throughout the country. These include concentration camps, death camps, transitional camps, and ghettos. The map is divided according to Poland's voivodeships, with a key in the lower left. Names of cities too long to spell are also provided in the lower left. This map was produced during a point in Poland's history during which it was actively revisiting the period during the Second World War. Leading social scientists devoted their time to trying to gather all the living as well as the recorded history of the events of the Holocaust and related atrocities before this information vanished. Leading these efforts, particularly during the 1960s and 1970s, was the Glówna Komisja Scigania Zbrodni przeciwko Narodowi Polskiemu, known as the Chief Commission for the Prosecution of Crimes against the Polish Nation. They were active in publishing maps both for domestic educational purposes and for international remembrance and diplomatic efforts regarding the Holocaust. Jan Laskowski was a leading cartographer who produced a number of maps in this field. These maps were produced as part of a series of maps that purported to combine to form an atlas of all of Hitler's crimes in Poland. Many of the large wall maps produced during this period could only show a fraction of the crimes, or only the atrocities committed in one region. Thus, a series of maps was needed to show all the points necessary, which this present work contributes to. Polish Reinterpretations of the Holocaust: Studying the effects of German occupation in Poland is a delicate subject. While it is certain that Poland suffered at least as badly as any other European nation during the Second World War, reinterpretations of the Holocaust in the country have also been used to satisfy nationalistic tendencies. It has become evident to Western observers in the last several years that there is a strong nationalist movement in Poland that seeks to place blame for the Holocaust solely on the shoulders of non-Polish actors, a movement originally fostered under Soviet rule. This movement has gone so far as to limit freedom of speech, criminalizing (with a three-year sentence) the suggestion that Poland or its citizens (in any form) participated in the murders committed by Nazis. As such, the term ‘Polish concentration camps’ has been deemed unacceptable, with the government-approved term being ‘concentration camps on Polish territory.’ All lines of evidence show that this map [2A & 2B] was produced using the most accurate and impartial historical sources. The language on the map is simple, naming only ‘Hitler's Atrocities,’ and there is no evidence of a clear anti-German bias. However, it is impossible to separate this map, one of the most important productions of the remembrance movement during this period, from the social situation in which it was produced. Maps like these can easily be converted into propaganda instruments, and today's Polish leaders, most of whom grew up during Soviet occupation, will have formed their understanding of the Holocaust through maps like these. Soviet Censorship: While the content of the map appears to have been produced free from bias, the map still had to go through Soviet censorship. Mentioning prisoner of war camps, in which primarily Soviet troops were interned, would have been a prerequisite condition upon which the publication of the map rested. Further, the lack of mention of any Soviet killings or camps requires no explanation…..The map, unlike many later maps, makes no differentiation between the populations who suffered at the various camps. This represents the Soviet agenda that all nations suffered, fought, and won equally, which sought to limit divisions in this post-identity state” (Ruderman, 2022).

1st edition. Original illustrated Cloth in dust jacket, 4to (large), [64] pages. Includes 34 full-page linocut illustrations, each one signed in pencil by the artist. Also signed and dated by the artist in pen on the title page. Calligraphic typeface, initials, double-sided dust jacket, and text illustrations, all in linocut, also by the artist. “sheloshim ve-arba'ah ha-tsiyurim me-et Aryeh Alv'ail.” Text in Hebrew. Beautiful accordion-style (double page) binding. In our research, we have come across no other copies with signed linocuts, so this may represent a special sub-edition, given that Allweil bound all published copies of the book himself. Published in the midst of the Holocaust, the ancient themes in Amos of abuse of the marginalized are everpresent in Allweil’s production. As Scott Ponemone notes, “In his autobiographical essay in the book Allweil (Arieh Allweil, Max Brod and I.M. Lask, Sinai Publishing, Tel Aviv, Israel, 1955), Allweil again used the quote ‘The prophet spoke to all generations…’ that served as his motto. He then said: ‘One of the writers advised me to quote these words as a motto in my illustrations to the book of Amos [this work]. This text I wrote with my personal lettering [i.e. his own Hebrew font], and opposite every written page I printed a Lino-cut. I similarly made three megillahs [scrolls, or more loosely translated, narratives]: Ruth, Esther and Lamentations. I put figures into our home, the people are our brothers, our parents and our children.’ I believe that what Allweil meant by the last sentence (‘I put figures into our home,…) is that his linocuts would reflect not only the Old Testament days of the Prophet Amos but the agonies of the Holocaust that began in the 1930s. In his essay, he then quoted from the biblical text of Amos and then indicated how he used contemporary events to illustrate that text: ‘ ‘Shall a trumpet be blown in the city.‘ This is a siren for an air-raid. On the day when I finished the book Amos, the first Italian bombs fell; they fell on our house, and we were saved. ‘Though they climb up to heaven, thence will I bring them down.’ This mean[s] aeroplanes. ‘With threshing instruments of iron.’ I know what this means–tanks.”” Indeed, several of the full-page linocuts show modern soldiers, a tank, an airplane, and German-style grenades, in addition to general scenes of death, destruction, and public torture, interspersed with the biblical-era characters and settings. Ponemone also notes that for Amos, Allweil “printed, cut and bound the pages himself. This herculean effort, while notable, would not have been sufficient had his illustrations not exhibited tremendous energy and imagination. If his Amos had been an isolated accomplishment, Allweil would deserve lasting renown.”Biographer and curator Galia Bar Or notes that Allweil (1901-1967) “made a distinctive contribution to Israeli art in two very different and contrasting fields: a new visual interpretation of biblical texts by means of black-and-white prints and calligraphy, in works that in a unique and topical way express his suppressed anguish at the horrors of the Holocaust period, and an original development of richly colorful and pictorial landscape painting…. The dialectical relations between these two orientations in Allweil’s oeuvre, nightmare and utopia, hints its complex character….In 1939 Allweil established an independent publishing firm named ‘Hillel’ [after his father], and in the course of the war years and the Holocaust he published books that he produced with his own hands, among them The Anonymous Jew, Lamentations, Amos and Esther. He hand-gouged the texts on linoleum, interspersed the illustrations with allusions to events of the period, printed the sheets, cut, folded and bound the books all by himself.”Galia Gavish, the author of two books on Allweil writes that he “produced his illustrated books in a German expressionist style and in a Jewish spirit. Similarly to European artists, who used Greek mythology as an political allegory for their period, Allweil drew his allegorical materials from the Jewish classics the Bible. Allweil’s choice of the Scrolls of Esther, Lamentations and Amos, and the Passover Haggadah, are significant. Each of these books has an apocalyptic atmosphere with a hopeful ending.”For more on Allweil, see Bar Or’s catalog “Arieh Allweil: Letters, Figures, Landscapes”(https://museumeinharod.org.il/en/letters-figures-landscapes), Gavish’s “Arieh Allweil: Prints & Calligraphy” and “Arieh Allweil: From Bitania to Vienna and Back;” and the Israel Museum’s information page on Allweil (https://museum.imj.org.il/artcenter/newsite/en/?artist=Allweil,%20Arieh). For more specifically on this work, Amos, see Scott Ponemone’s discussions online at http://www.scottponemone.com/arieh-allweil-the-book-of-amos-part-1/ and http://www.scottponemone.com/arieh-allweil-the-book-of-amos-part-2/. About the Biblical Book of Amos: The prophet Amos’s connection to the simple life of the people made its way into the center of his prophecies, as he showed a heart for the oppressed and the voiceless in the world. Though he came from the southern kingdom of Judah, Amos delivered his prophecy against the northern kingdom of Israel and the surrounding nations, leading to some resistance from the prideful Israelites (Amos 7:12). Jeroboam’s reign had been quite profitable for the northern kingdom, at least in a material sense. However, the moral decay that also occurred at that time counteracted any positives from the material growth. Amos was fed up. While most of the prophets interspersed redemption and restoration in their prophecies against Israel and Judah, Amos devoted only the final five verses of his prophecy for such consolation. Prior to that, God’s word through Amos was directed against the privileged people of Israel, a people who had no love for their neighbor, who took advantage of others, and who only looked out for their own concerns. More than almost any other book of Scripture, the book of Amos holds God’s people accountable for their ill-treatment of others. It repeatedly points out the failure of the people to fully embrace God’s idea of justice. They were selling off needy people for goods, taking advantage of the helpless, oppressing the poor, and abusing young women (Amos 2:6–8; 3:10; 4:1; 5:11–12; 8:4–6). Drunk on their own economic success and intent on strengthening their financial position, the people had lost the concept of caring for one another; Amos rebuked them because he saw in that lifestyle evidence that Israel had forgotten God. However, the people in the north used Amos’s status as a foreigner as an excuse to ignore his message of judgment for a multiplicity of sins.Rather than seeking out opportunities to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly, they embraced their arrogance, idolatry, self-righteousness, and materialism.

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).

Athletes' participation in the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games, which were viewd as providing both legitimacy and a prime propaganda opportunity to Hitler's Nazi government. Put together in 1936 by a coalition of New York left-wing political organizations and labor unions including the heavily Jewish International Ladies' Garment Workers Union (ILGWU) , the Socialist and Communist Parties, the Jewish Labor Committee, and others, the Carnival took place over two days, coinciding with the two final days of the Berlin Games, and involved an array of high-profile American, Canadian, and a few international competitors including high-jumper Walter Marty, sprinters Eulace Peacock and Perrin Walker, and pole vaulter George Varoff. In the end, the Carnival proved something of a disappointment from both an attendance and an athletic perspective. Aside from Varoff's world-record setting performance in the pole vault, "... The New York Herald Tribune described the athletic performances as 'mediocre' and noted that the spectators were unenthusiastic'" (for a detailed account of the event, see Edward S. Shapiro, "The World Labor Athletic Carnival of 1936: an American Anti-Nazi Protest, " in American Jewish History v.74, no.3 (Mar 1985) , pp.255-273) . No copies anywhere in OCLC.

These merged organizations included the YWHA, YMHA, and the National Council of Young Men's Hebrew and Kindred Association” (Wikipedia).

The Foreword notes (translated) that “The first anniversary of the liberation of the Budapest ghetto has arrived. It is time to bring to the world the terrible documents of the tragedy of Judaism and put the still unbelievers who turn their heads into thinking; those who do not believe because they do not want to believe.

He is known mainly for his autobiographical novel Krabice živých (A Box of Lives, 1956) , in which he describes his experiences in Nazi concentration camps. During World War II, he was imprisoned in the Theresienstadt, Auschwitz and Dachau-Kaufering concentration camps… The plot is set in the last months of 1944, in the fictional concentration camp of Gigling. The main character, the young intellectual Zdenek Roubík, is an assistant in the camp office. One of his jobs is to maintain the card index of the inmates, hence the title of the novel, ‘A Box of Lives. ’ In the camp, Roubík gradually manages to overcome the apathy and depression caused by the death of his brother and he becomes more actively involved in camp life. The author attempts to depict everyday life, social interactions and relationships in the camp, and the work and hardships of the inmates. The description of the SS guards in the camp is a focus of particular attention…The novel was acclaimed by contemporary critics, and republished in numerous editions and translations. ” (Wikipedia, 2017) Frýd’s successful novel was published twice in Czech in 1956, with this 1st edition being much rarer than the stated 2nd edition.

"When I returned from Auschwitz in 1945, I felt what I had just experienced with such acuteness that it was impossible for me to keep it to myself. I recorded it in notes and drawings. This constituted ‘Without flowers nor Crowns.’ I do not regret having written these notes as soon as I returned from camp because, over time, memories become distorted, they become watered down or dramatized, but always move away from the truth. (...)" Odette Elina (1910-1991) was a “painter, was deported by the Gestapo to Auschwitz-Birkenau in April 1944 as a communist, but above all and above all because she was Jewish. In 1940, she entered the French Resistance network, she had had an initial function to establish the liaison between the writers residing in the South zone (notably Mauriac, Aragon and Julien Benda) before entering the Secret Army in 1942. We actually know very little about the biographical career of Elina before and after her deportation, apart from her exacerbated desire on leaving the Camp to testify to her life in the Camp. ‘Without Flowers nor Crowns’, [was] originally published in 1948 in the wake of the first testimonies…on the Holocaust that appeared in the post-war years..."

He was a talmid or Rav Simcha Zissel Broida one of the foremost disciples of Rabbi Yisroel Salanter. Below are eight fascicles printed in Shanghai. The first three fascicles were first published before the Holocaust in Baranovitch, the fourth was published in Kaiden due to the war. For a period during 1940, the town served as home to about 300 students and teachers from the Mir Yeshiva. After WWII, much of orthodox Jewry in Europe was wiped out, along with their many yeshivas (Jewish schools of higher learning) . One of the only yeshivas to survive as a whole body was the Mir Yeshiva, which managed to escape miraculously to Shanghai, China, and then on to America. Many of the new leaders of the American and Israeli yeshivas in the post-war period were students of the Mir, and thus followers of Rabbi Leibovitz. SUBJECTS: Litvak – Holocaust – Displaced Persons.

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).

In Russian. Bound in two cloth and board volumes and one single-issue paper binding, each of the three volumes bearing the pre-war stamp of a Jewish organization in Germany and bookplate of “Jewish Cultural Reconstruction,” a New York based umbrella organization that served as a trusteeship for the Jewish people in the immediate aftermath of the Holocaust. This organization distributed heirless and unidentifiable cultural materials to scholarly institutions in the United States, Israel, Europe and Latin America, indicating that these volumes survived the Holocaust in Europe and were then re-distributed after the war. Voskhod was a monthly magazine dedicated to the interests of Jews, published without prior censorship in the capital of the Russian Empire, St. Petersburg, first as a monthly from January 1881 to Dec 1899 and then as a weekly from Jan 1900 to April 1906. “The magazine was a product of the Haskalah movement” (Wikipedia).“The founder of the Voskhod magazine was Adolf Efimovich (Aharon Khaimovich) Landau, who had previously published the Jewish Library almanac. The magazine also published a newspaper, first called ‘The Weekly Chronicle of the Sunrise’, and later simply ‘Voskhod’ (published from 1882 to July 1906). Some of the readers were former subscribers of the magazine ‘Jewish Notes’, who were recommended by the editor-in-chief of the latter before stopping the publication due to financial difficulties. In the second half of the 1890s, the actual editing passed from Landau to Ph.D. Semyon Osipovich Gruzenberg (until the summer of 1899).The program of AE Landau, who chose the motto ‘Progress outside and inside Jewry’ for the periodical, was: ‘a firm, free word to fight against all external and internal obstacles that hinder the correct development of Russian Jewry’; from the very first issue of Voskhod, he began to denounce the internal backwardness of the Jews, urging them to spiritual emancipation and to broad enlightenment; on the other hand, Voskhod fought just as vigorously against legal restrictions and harassment, despite extremely unfavorable external conditions.When Voskhod was founded, there were two more Russian-Jewish press organs, but from 1884 on Voskhod remained the only one and soon gained immense popularity among Jews in Russia. His direction created many enemies for him: he was attacked by the Jewish body ‘Hameliz’ for denouncing the dark phenomena of traditional Jewry, as well as by the followers of the Palestinian idea. Seeing the solution of the Jewish question only in progress and the achievement of equality in Russia, ‘Voskhod’ was negative about the idea of ??colonizing Palestine, and when in the 1880s. emigration from Russia increased,’Voskhod’ spoke out in favor of emigration not to Palestine, but to America. However, the magazine also gave space to some articles explaining the Palestinian idea (Lilienbluma et al.), And ‘never ceased to sympathize with those who had already migrated to Palestine.’” (Wikipe, translated from Russian) SUBJECT(S): Jews -- Russia -- Periodicals.

In this historic speech, Temple concludes, “My chief protest is against procrastination of any kind… The Jews are being slaughtered at the rate of tens of thousands a day on many days. We know that what we can do is small compared with the magnitude of the problem, but we cannot rest so long as there is any sense among us that we are not doing all that might be done. We have discussed the matter on the footing we are not responsible for this great evil… but it is always true that the obligations of decent men are decided for them by contingencies which they did not themselves create… We stand at the bar of history, of humanity, and of God. ” Holocaust-era speeches by the Archbishop of Canterbury and Lord Rochester made to the House of Lords outlining ongoing atrocities and calling for the British government to approach the problem of resettling Jewish refugees with more urgency. “William Temple (1881–1944) was a bishop in the Church of England. He served as Bishop of Manchester (1921–29) , Archbishop of York (1929–42) and Archbishop of Canterbury (1942–44) . A renowned teacher and preacher, Temple is perhaps best known for his 1942 book Christianity and Social Order, which set out an Anglican social theology and a vision for what would constitute a just post-war society…. Against the background of persecution of Jewish people during World War II, Temple jointly founded with Chief Rabbi Joseph Hertz the Council of Christians and Jews (CCJ) to combat anti-Semitism and other forms of prejudice in Britain. In March 1943, Temple addressed the House of Lords, urging action to be taken on the atrocities being carried out by Nazi Germany. ” (Wikipedia, 2016) SUBJECT(S) : Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) .

In March 1945 she reached a camp in Italy, where she met Jewish soldiers from Palestine who were serving in the British army. One of them, the artist Menahem Shemi, organized an exhibition of drawings from the camps, which resulted in the publication of a booklet Jewesses in Slavery. This contained drawings by Lurie from Stutthof and Leibitz and was published by the Jewish Soldiers' Club of Rome in 1945. Lurie also created stage sets for the military song and dance group in the camp, which was founded by Eliahu Goldberg and Mordechai Zeira.

Edition: First Edition
Binding: Paperback
1st edition. Original paper wrappers, tall 12mo, 69 pages. 22 cm. In German. The first separate publication of a demand for Nazi reparations to the Jews. In July 1943, long before the war ended, Siegfried Moses coined the term “reparations” in relation to claims of Jewish citizens against the German state. He published an article on the restitution demands of Jews in the bulletin of the "Irgun Olej Merkaz Europa", Tel Aviv; they publish here those proposals as a separate work. For the first time, Moses proposed that a State can commit an injustice, for which it must then compensate the civilian population which suffered under that injustice. This legal opinion was later the basis for reparations by the Federal Republic of Germany. Siegfried Moses (1887-1974) was a German-Israeli lawyer and the first state comptroller Israel. After the Nazi seizure of power, he helped German Jews transfer assets to Palestine. From 1933 on he was also chairman of the Zionist Federation of Germany (ZVfD) and Vice President of the Reich Association of German Jews. In 1937 Moses himself fled to Palestine; then in 1941 he wrote (together with fellow German emigre Walter Schwarz) the text of the 1941 Palestinian Income Tax Act. In 1947 Moses was a member of the delegation of the Jewish Agency at the United Nations and in 1949, he became the first state comptroller Israel (Chief of Court) . In 1956-1957, he was also President of the "Council of Jews from Germany", the official association of Israelis of German origin. In 1955 he co-founded the Leo Baeck Institute, serving as its director, and was on the advisory board of the United Restitution Organization in Israel (Wikipedia, 2015) .

Our suffering brethren in war torn Europe will continue to hope against hope, if our thoughts, our prayers and our united efforts will be with them and for them. The religious forces in America should champion legislation for the suspension of all restrictive legislation to make possible the immediate admission of children from Europe for the duration of the war. Millions of Americans will eagerly offer the hospitality of their homes for these unfortunates. The arrival of a huge expeditionary army of little ones to these shores will immediately fortify our spirit and will generate in us a spirit of selflessness and sacrifice which will enable us to face the future with courage and confidence. ” (page 8) Not listed on OCLC or anywhere else online.

1st printing of the 1938 edition. October, 1938. Original illustrated wrappers, 12mo (small) , 191 pages, including many, many period ads. Published just one month prior to Kristallnacht, this is a Name and Address Directory of the world’s leading Fur business district, the Brühl, and its counterpart in Berlin, both very heavily Jewish. Divided into 2 sections, one for the Brühl in Leipzig, and the other for Furriers in Berlin. In the 19th and early 20th Century, the “Brühl” had become synonymous with the Leipzig fur and Tobacco trade. It was the name of the large street where the trade was concentrated (also including Nikolai- and Reichs-strasse) . The Brühl reached it’s highest density with 794 shops in 1928. Of these, about 58 percent were Jewish run and owned. In the period 1926-1930, the Brühl controlled about one third of the world market in furs. With the great depression, followed by the Nazi seizure of power in 1933, the fur trade went into decline. For political reasons the fascist leadership limited the import quotas for goods from the USSR, such as raw fur. And, of course, increasingly, Jewish merchants in the Brühl were discriminated against and expelled. Many fled to England or the United States, where they established new fur businesses. Following Kristallnacht, which came only 1 month after the publication of this guide in October 1938, it became impossible for Jewish furriers to function. Some of the most famous Jewish fur traders included: Julius (Judel) Ariowitsch (1855-1908) ; Chaim Eitingon (1857-1932) , known as "Fur King from Brühl", founder of the Ez Chaim Synagogue and the Jewish hospital; the Frankel family; the Harmerlin Family; John B.

' Emphasizing that the Jewish underground movement in Poland today is part of the great Polish underground army waging the struggle for the common cause of liberation, Mr. Stanczyk declared that the present war 'has wiped out the institutions and destroyed the power of groups which had striven to foment hatred among the people of Poland' and that their common fate has created a strong bond between Gentile and Jew. ” - JTA, 'Post-war Poland Will Guarantee Equality to Jews, Stanczyk Pledges', December 11, 1941.

(1945) . Original Illustrated Paper Wrappers, Small 8vo, 216 pages. Eredeti borítóval. Includes 9 powerful original linocut illustrations, and cover design, by Shagra Weil. Also includes a bit of music.Title translates as "The Yellow Book. Data on the War Losses of Hungarian Jewry. 1941-1945." One of the earliest book about the Hungarian Holocaust. Published by Hechaluc (Hehalutz), the Zionist resistant movement, whose legendary headquarters was located at the Üvegház (Glasshouse) in Budapest, a former glass-store. During the Holocaust about 3000 people found shelter there and it was the center for producing fake identification documents to save Hungarian Jews from persecution. Shraga Weil (Ferenc Ferdinánd; 1918-2009) was a Hungarian born Israeli painter. He studied at the Academy of Art in Prague and École des Beaux Arts in Paris. During WWII he was active in the Zionist underground movement in Budapest, working in the workshop for forging documents. After the war he sailed for Palestine on an illegal immigrant ship and became a member of Kibbutz Ha'ogen where he lived until his death. In 1959 Weil was awarded the Dizengoff Prize for painting. He created the doors of the main entrance to the Knesset building and the President's residence in Jerusalem. Weil painted the wooden panels in the Israeli Hall at the Kennedy Center. Sándor Groszmann (Alexander Grossmann, Ben Erec; 1909-2003) was a journalist and publisher, one of the main activists of the Hungarian Zionist movement and co-founder of "Hashomer Hatzair" in Hungary. He was one of the leaders at the "Glasshouse". "When the argument arose about whether to absorb more Jews into the 'Glass House' as they might endanger the lives of those already living there, he said: 'For the sake of one hundred thousand Jews it is worth to endanger our own lives'". (Gur, D.; 2007). After the liberation he was the secretary of JDC (American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee) in Budapest and member of the board of the Hungarian Zionist Association and of the "Eretz-Israel" office. In 1949 he left Hungary and after living in Austria and Israel he settled down in Switzerland where he started to publish books and the periodical "Jöv?" (Future).

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.

Original wraps. 8vo. 246, [2] pages. 23 cm. Serial publication. In Hungarian, with Yiddish. “OMZSA Yearbook”. The Országos Magyar Zsidó Segíto Akció (National Hungarian Jewish Aid Association; OMZSA) was a general assistance organization for the large Budapest community. The OMZSA was involved with cultural, legal, and economic battles on behalf of the (religious) Jewish Budapest community. For example, a series of drawings by the artist Imre Amos (1907-1945) entitled “Zsidó ünnepek (Jewish Holidays) , representing the Jewish holidays in the shadow of annihilation, became emblematic for Hungarian Jewry. (The series appeared in 150 copies published in 1940 by the Országos Magyar Zsidó Segito Akció [National Hungarian Jewish Aid Action]. ) ” (YIVO encyclopedia) . According to OCLC, four issues of the yearbook are known to exist (the earliest issue is titled “OMZSA Naptár” –OMZSA Calendar) . 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.

1st edition. Original green printed wrappers, 8vo, 32 pages. Early Zionist plea from the pivotal year of 1904, which saw both Herzl’s death as well as the first American publication of Herzl’s “The Jewish State.” Indeed, “by 1904, cultural Zionism was accepted by most Zionists and a schism was beginning to develop between the Zionist movement and Orthodox Judaism. In 1904, Herzl died unexpectedly at the age of 44 and the leadership was taken over by David Wolffsohn, who led the movement until 1911. During this period, the movement was based in Berlin (Germany's Jews were the most assimilated) and made little progress, failing to win support among the Young Turks after the collapse of the Ottoman Regime….Under Herzl's leadership, Zionism relied on Orthodox Jews for religious support, with the main party being the orthodox Mizrachi. However, as the cultural and socialist Zionists increasingly broke with tradition and used language contrary to the outlook of most religious Jewish communities, many orthodox religious organizations began opposing Zionism. Their opposition was based on its secularism and on the grounds that only the Messiah could re-establish Jewish rule in Israel.Therefore, most Orthodox Jews maintained the traditional Jewish belief that while the Land of Israel was given to the ancient Israelites by God, and the right of the Jews to that land was permanent and inalienable, the Messiah must appear before the land could return to Jewish control” (Wikipedia. “Albert M. Friedenberg (1881–1942) was an American lawyer and historian. “At the age of 19, he joined the American Jewish Historical Society and became one of its leading members; he was largely responsible for the issuance of 17 volumes of the Publications of the American Jewish Historical Society (ajhsp, nos. 18–34). Friedenberg wrote numerous papers and articles on the early history of Jews in America, immigration, historical aspects of Zionism, Jews in Masonry, and the Jewish periodical press, and also on local German Jewish history, literature, and biography. He acted as the New York correspondent of the Baltimore Jewish Comment (1902–10) and the Chicago Reform Advocate (1905–31), and as contributing editor of the New York Hebrew Standard (1907–23).

[Wilhelm] Marr’s Writings Historically and Factually Lit by Ludwig Stern. ” Stern was a German Talmudic scholar, teacher, author, and contemporary of Wilhelm Marr, who published this work in the same year as Marr’s infamous pamphlet, Der Weg zum Siege des Germanenthums über das Judenthum (The Way to Victory of Germanicism over Judaism, 1879) . Wilhelm Marr (1819-1904) , a radical agitator, had been on the left wing in the 48 revolutions; he later popularized the term anti-semitism. In ‘Der Weg zum Siege des Germanenthums über das Judenthum, ’ he introduced the idea that Germans and Jews were locked in a longstanding conflict, the origins of which he attributed to race, argued that Jewish emancipation resulting from German liberalism had allowed the Jews to control German finance and industry, and called for the expulsion of Jews from Germany. Marr later renounced anti-semitism at the end of his life, and declared himself as originally a 'philo-semite', undoubtedly under the impact of the debates in the SPD. This work was published in the same year as The Way to Victory of Germanicism over Judaism. OCLC lists 18 copies worldwide, and none outside of Europe.

Alnaqua was “a physician, rabbi, theological writer, and founder of the Jewish community at Tlemçen, North Africa… According to a legend, Alnaqua escaped from the Spanish Inquisition, which had martyred his father and mother at the stake, and came to Maghreb mounted on a lion, using a serpent as a halter. Azulai (refered) to him as a miracle-worker. Alnaqua succeeded, after all other physicians had failed, in curing the only daughter of a king of the Zayyanid dynasty. Refusing the reward of gold and silver offered him by the king, he begged only that the Jews living near Tlemçen might be united in it. In this way the community was formed. Alnaqua's first care was to establish a large synagogue: this is still in existence (as of 1906) , and bears his name. Above the rabbi's chair, on which the verse Jer. Xvii.12 is engraved, a lamp burns perpetually. Alnaqua's grave, surrounded by those of his family, is in the old cemetery: it is sacred to North African Jews, and (as of 1906) is frequently visited by pilgrims from all Algeria…” (Wikipedia, 2016) No holdings worldwide on OCLC.

First edition. Original paper wrappers. 8vo. 119 pages; 18 cm. In Yiddish. Holocaust-era publication from Paris. Title translates to “Toward the historic day of judgment, the Jewish people between curses and redemption” Published early in the Holocaust, Ben-Adir argues for the enactment of national introspection and calm rather than territorialism! Ben-Adir (1878–1942) was writer and Jewish socialist leader, born in Krucha, Belorussia. He was a child prodigy and left for university in Minsk at the age of 16. While there, he was heavily influenced by Jewish socialism. After the First Zionist Congress in 1897, Ben-Adir published an article advocating political Zionism in opposition to the ideology of Ahad Ha-Am. After then Kishinev pogrom of 1903 Ben-Adir published a call for the formation of a Jewish party which would combine the aims of revolutionary socialism with national Jewish aspirations. Ben-Adir was one of the founders and ideologists of the Vozrozhdeniye group, and of its successor of the Sejmists (Jewish Socialist Workers' Party) whose program included Jewish national-political autonomy while envisaging territorial sovereignty as a remote aim. Ben-Adir stayed in Erets Israel between 1925 and 1927 but returned to Berlin, leaving for Paris in 1933. "Algemeyne geshikhtlekhe perspektivn un problemen -- tsentrale yidishe problem."

Published 13 years before Salk’s vaccine. “On January 3, 1938, Roosevelt founded the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, now known as the March of Dimes… The organization initially focused on the rehabilitation of victims of paralytic polio, and supported the work of Jonas Salk and others that led to the development of polio vaccines. ” (Wikipedia, 2017) This memorial program was Chaired by Congressman Sol Bloom, the influential Jewish Congressman from New York. “In the run-up to World War II, he took charge of high-priority foreign-policy legislation for the Roosevelt Administration, including authorization for Lend Lease in 1941.” (Wikipedia, 2017) . Though FDR was open about his Polio, he also tried to downplay it; this is an unusually public connection of FDR and Polio: “FDR requested that the press avoid photographing him walking, maneuvering, or being transferred from his car. The stipulation was accepted by most reporters and photographers but periodically someone would not comply. The Secret Service was assigned to purposely interfere with anyone who tried to snap a photo of FDR in a ‘disabled or weak’ state” (FDR Presidential Library, 2017) . OCLC lists no copies anywhere.

It isn’t because I’m a militarist. I’m not intrigued… by the romance of war. Let me make this plain to you.

1st edition, original paper wrappers. 8vo, 8 pages. A sermon preached on New Year’s Morning, Saturday, September 8th, 1945 before Congregation Keneseth Israel of Allentown, Pennsylvania by Rabbi Braunstein, Ph. D. “This sermon was preached before the release on Sept. 30, 1945 of Earl G. Harrison’s Report to President Truman on the conditions of refugees and displaced persons in western Europe, and of the subsequent interchange of correspondence between the President and General Eisenhower. All of these strengthen and confirm the point-of-view expressed in this sermon. ” (page 8) Braunstein doesn’t think that the Jews who fled should have to go back to their former homes. He says, “The Intergovernmental Committee on Refugees, of which our Government is a member, recently declared that the Jewish ‘D. P. ’ will be given the opportunity to learn ‘more about conditions in his country and give the governments more time to satisfy their nationals that they can return to their countries with the prospect of leading a healthy, normal life before reaching the conclusion that the person must be treated permanently as non-repatriable. ’ These are elegant words to conceal the real decision of the Intergovernmental Committee on Refugees. That decision is this: ‘Let the Jews cool off their heels in the German concentration camps until they realize they must return to their former homes’. The simplest truth is that these Jews are afraid to return to their former homes. They who have cheated death for so many years at the hands of the Germans do not want to die at the hands of the Germans, do not want to die at the hands of their former co-citizens. And if their experiences in Poland and in Slovakia and elsewhere are any indication of how the wind is blowing, they have a right to fear. They have a right to refuse to return to their former homes. I have been wondering whether the late President Roosevelt’s promise of a world in which there would be freedom from fear will ever have meaning to the displaced Jews of Europe. ” (page 6) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) .

1st seperate edition. Original orange paper covers, Softcover, 108 pages, 8vo. In German with Hebrew citations. Published during the Rohling-Bloch Affair. Rohling, (1839-1931) , was an "antisemitic polemicist. A fanatical ultramontanist priest from the Rhineland, Rohling published in 1871 his Der Talmudjude (based on J. A. Eisenmenger 's Entdecktes Judenthum) , a collection of deliberately corrupted quotations, imaginary statements, and forgeries against the Talmud. The book appeared in successive editions and became very popular. When Franz Holubek, a leader of the Viennese artisan movement, was sued for inciting a crowd against the Jews (April 4, 1882) , he pleaded not guilty, claiming that he had obtained his information in good faith from the books of Rohling, a full professor at the German University of Prague. Rohling's academic appointments were obtained through the intercession of high Church dignitaries. Holubek's acquittal was a victory for the growing political antisemitism. Rohling and his works acquired further notoriety through the Tiszaeszlar blood libel affair, when Rohling volunteered to testify that Jews required Christian blood for their ceremonies. After Franz Delitzsch , the renowned Protestant Orientalist, had revealed Rohling's ignorance and baseness, Rohling accused Delitzsch of being a Jew and then castigated Adolf Jellinek and Moritz Guedemann as cunning knaves for denying Holubek's charges. Rohling's challenger was Joseph Samuel Bloch who, after repeated sorties against him, published a series of articles in July 1883 under the title, "An Offer to Commit Perjury, " in which he branded Rohling a liar and perjurer. Forced by public opinion to sue Bloch for libel, Rohling enlisted the aid of two antisemites, Brimanus (a Romanian-Jewish renegade who had taught Rohling Hebrew and was author of the scurrilous Der Judenspiegel under the pseudonym "Justus") and Ecker (a convicted forger, priest, and professor at an obscure seminary in Paderborn) . Neither could attend the trial. Bloch recruited the respected Orientalists Theodor Noeldeke and Karl August Wuensche, who completely demolished all Rohling's academic pretenses. Even Paul Lagarde condemned Rohling's works. In 1885, shortly before the trial was due to open, Rohling withdrew his suit after Bloch had collected an immense amount of material against him. He paid the costs of the trial, lost his academic chair, and left the public scene, nevertheless continuing to publish antisemitic tracts. Rohling's Talmudjude was translated into several European languages; E. Drumont wrote the introduction to the French edition. The work continued to be published for more than 50 years, and served as a source for Nazi antisemitic doctrines" (EJ, 2007) . Hinge repair, lightly browned pages, with taped repair at spine.

Isserman, the author, was the Rabbi of Temple Israel, St. Louis, Missouri. He was born in Antwerp, and immigrated with his family to the United States in 1906. He was ordained by Hebrew Union College and served the rabbinate in St. Louis for many decades. He participated in many civic and Jewish causes and visited Nazi Germany three times (1933, 1935 and 1937) - the first visit of which prompted the present document, in which he states “there is no hope for the Jews of Germany - the government aim is their human extirpation” (p. 3). His stated conclusions are that there is no hope for the Jews of Germany, that atrocities were perpetrated on Jews and other dissenters and will continue to be perpetrated, that an economic death sentence has been passed on the Jews of Germany, that only the fear of public and foreign opinion is preventing a pogrom against all the Jews of Germany, and that the Jews of Germany live under a sentence of death.

In his early days in the United States, Isaac Moses "was considered a radical Reformer, but later he took a more moderate position. In 1884 he introduced his own prayer book (Tefillat Yisrael). Moses was a founding member of the Central Conference of American Rabbis and a member of the Reform committee charged with compiling an official prayer book. The appearance of the Union Prayer Book in 1894 has been credited to his personal initiative in preparing and circulating a manuscript when the committee's work seemed to be leading nowhere. Moses also published a number of sermons and textbooks for children. His Sabbath School Hymnal, first issued in 1894, ran into 14 editions. While in Milwaukee, he edited the weekly Der Zeitgeist (1880-82). " (encyclopedia.com) In one of these sermons, Rabbi Moses discusses the evils that occurred in Egypt and then goes on to say, "Does not out civilization show the most alarming symptoms of the evils and the diseases of Egypt?

"With a dignity and restraint that seem almost superhuman this note by Foreign Commissar Molotov sets forth fresh proofs of the subhuman savagery of the Hitlerites. In previous notes to the United Nations Molotov has presented documentary evidence of the fiendish atrocities visited on Soviet citizens in the Nazi-occupied areas. In this one he gives details of the manner in which millions of Soviet citizens are driven into slavery…. As they systematically lay waste the Russian towns and villages during occupation or retreat, the German marauders simultaneously seek to enslave or destroy all of the Soviet people who fall into their clutches. The majority of able-bodied citizens, young and old, men and women, girls and boys, are forcibly shipped into Germany. Those who resist are murdered. The rest are packed like cattle into railroad cars. Those who sicken on the awful journey are thrown out. The railroad embankments are littered with their bodies all the way.

If your neighbour uncloses in his backyard a container with poison gases which threaten to spread over the entire town, you will not waste time by asking for permission to enter his backyard, you will do so to avert death for thousands of people. Racial ideas are more dangerous than any poison gas. It is our generation’s duty to the future, to the cause of the progress of civilisation and humanity, not only to put out the smoking fire of Fascism but to uncover and extinguish every smouldering coal of it. ” (page [12]) Very rare, not listed on OCLC nor could we locate copies anywhere else.

Title translates to “Toward the historic day of judgment, the Jewish people between curses and redemption” Published early in the Holocaust, Ben-Adir argues for the enactment of national introspection and calm rather than territorialism! Ben-Adir (1878–1942) was writer and Jewish socialist leader, born in Krucha, Belorussia. He was a child prodigy and left for university in Minsk at the age of 16.

After then Kishinev pogrom of 1903 Ben-Adir published a call for the formation of a Jewish party which would combine the aims of revolutionary socialism with national Jewish aspirations. Ben-Adir was one of the founders and ideologists of the Vozrozhdeniye group, and of its successor of the Sejmists (Jewish Socialist Workers' Party) whose program included Jewish national-political autonomy while envisaging territorial sovereignty as a remote aim.

1st Polish edition. Later boards, 8vo, 91 pages. Includes 12 illustrated plates. In Polish. Title translates to “Majdanek: Court Proceedings of the Special Criminal Court in Lublin. ” A recording of court Preceedings of the Polish-Soviet Special Criminal Court established in Lublin in August 1944, in order to investigate the Nazi crimes in the Majdanek extermination camp. This Polish edition was published with several photographic reproductions, showing the members of the commission, the Nazi officers of the camp, the findings, human remains in Majdanek. 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.

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) .

Cover shows a miserable prisoner flanked by ball & chains of swastika and hammer & sickle, behind whom hover Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, and front and center The Pope. "Jehovah's Witnesses were subjected to intense persecution under the Nazi regime. The Nazis targeted Jehovah's Witnesses because they were unwilling to accept the authority of the state, because of their international connections, and because they were strongly opposed to both war on behalf of a temporal authority and organized government in matters of conscience. Within months of the Nazi takeover, regional governments, primarily those of Bavaria and Prussia, initiated aggressive steps against Jehovah's Witnesses, breaking up their meetings, ransacking and then occupying their local offices. By April 1, 1935, the Reich and Prussian Minister of the Interior ordered the responsible local officials to dissolve the Watchtower Society. Many actions of Jehovah's Witnesses antagonized Nazi authorities. While Witnesses contended that they were apolitical and that their actions were not anti-Nazi, their unwillingness to give the Nazi salute, to join party organizations or to let their children join the Hitler Youth, their refusal to participate in the so-called elections or plebiscites, and their unwillingness to adorn their homes with Nazi flags made them suspect.

During the Holocaust, as European Jewry was pushed to the brink of annihilation by Nazi Germany, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee was the main financial benefactor towards Jewish emigration from Europe and rescue attempts of Jews from Nazi-controlled territories. From the outbreak of World War II through 1944, American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee made it possible for more than 81,000 Jews to emigrate out of Nazi-occupied Europe to safety. JDC also smuggled aid to Jewish prisoners in labor camps and helped finance the Polish Jewish underground in preparations for the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto revolt. In addition, JDC was a major channel keeping American Jewish leaders informed—often in detail—about the holocaust. Yudlov 4109; Yaari 2370 or 2371; Berman (LOC) no. 1112.

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.

On the 1-year anniversary of the uprising, Rabbi Hertz discusses the world’s reaction, asking, “What has been--we wonder--the reaction in Allied lands to this stark Satanism? ” He praises church leaders among the few who were vigorous in their protests, answering rhetorically, stating, “Well the Press--with few honourable exceptions--passed it over in silence; and the larger public has thus remained unmoved by this mass crucifixion of a whole people. Only men and women of light and leading realised that Nazism was a maniacal assault on all the ethical foundations of society--pity, decency, and respect for life; an attempt to make a clean sweep of the sacred Heritage of Man. Foremost among them were the Heads of the Churches, with their passionate plea that, as the crimes were unheard-of, unheard-of measures were called for to stop them. ” (page 6) . The author, Joseph Herman Hertz (1872-1946, London) , was “chief rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth and author of books on Judaism and of influential commentaries on the Bible expressing a fundamentalist viewpoint....Hertz was elected to his post as chief rabbi in England in 1913. His career in that position was a colourful one. He attacked the newly formed Liberal Jewish movement (a movement more or less equivalent to U. S. Reform Judaism) . His powerful attacks on anti-Semitism included one, in the presence of the Russian ambassador, against Russian discrimination. ” (Britannica.com 2018) SUBJECT(S) : Jewish sermons, English -- Great Britain.

1st edition. Original stiff wrappers with 2 staples. 8vo, 13 leaves. Typescript mimeograph. “The Attorney-General of the Government of Israel v. Malchiel Gruenwald, commonly known as the Kastner trial, was a libel case in Jerusalem, Israel. Hearings were held from 1 January to October 1954 in the District Court of Jerusalem before Judge Benjamin Halevi (1910–1996), who published his decision on 22 June 1955.[1]The defendant, Malchiel Gruenwald (1881–1958), a hotelier who lost 52 relatives in the Auschwitz concentration camp, had accused Rudolf Kastner (1906–1957), a Hungarian lawyer and journalist who became a civil servant in Israel in 1947, of collaborating with the Nazis in Hungary during the Holocaust. The allegations were made in a self-published newsletter, Letter to Friends in the Mizrachi, in August 1952. The Israeli government sued on Kastner's behalf, calling him as one of 59 witnesses. Gruenwald was represented by Shmuel Tamir, a former Irgun commander, who turned the case into one that examined the actions of the governing Zionist Mapai party during the Holocaust, and what had been done to help Europe's Jews. One of the key issues was whether Kastner, who in Hungary had helped to found the Budapest Aid and Rescue Committee, had in effect collaborated with Adolf Eichmann and Kurt Becher, two SS officers, in his efforts to secure safe passage from Budapest to Switzerland in July 1944 of 1,684 Jews, on what became known as the Kastner train. Gruenwald and Tamir accused Kastner of having failed to warn the Hungarian Jewish community that they were to be loaded onto trains and taken to the gas chambers in Auschwitz, in occupied Poland. They alleged that he had known about the gas chambers since at least the end of April 1944 – when he had received a copy of the Vrba-Wetzler report – but had neglected to inform the wider community that they were not being deported from Hungary to be ‘resettled,’ as the Nazis had said. His motive, they said, was to safeguard the release of a smaller number, which included his family and friends. In failing to alert the wider community to the danger, they alleged that he had helped the SS avoid the spread of panic among the Jewish community, which would have slowed down the transports. The judge ruled in Gruenwald's favour, accusing Kastner of having ‘sold his soul to the devil.’ Kastner was assassinated outside his home in Tel Aviv in March 1957 as a result of the decision and the subsequent publicity.” (wikipedia) This booklet is against Kastner and how the Israeli Government handled it. They say, “Had the Kastner case taken its natural course, had Kastner been tried on the strength of the prima facie evidence like any other citizen in such circumstances (and in execution of the law specially passed for that purpose) there would, of course be no need for any special public action. But the Government, in defiance of accepted democratic procedure and in disregard of the country, has thrown all its weight on the other side of the scales. This can only mean that there is more behind the Kastner trial than has so far been revealed, and that Kastner is the key to other mysteries that accompanied the greatest catastrophe in our modern history.” (page 7-8) OCLC: 2056270, OCLC lists 4 copies worldwide (YU, YIVO, HUC, TAU) none at any non-Jewish institution.

While the handover was originally planned to take place at the beginning of 1947, it did not occur until July 1947. The International Refugee Organization was a temporary organization of the United Nations (UN) , which itself had been founded in 1945, with a mandate to largely finish the UNRRA's work of repatriating or resettling European refugees. It was dissolved in 1952 after resettling about one million refugees. The definition of a refugee at this time was an individual with either a Nansen passport or a ‘Certificate of identity’ issued by the International Refugee Organization. The Constitution of the International Refugee Organization, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 15 December 1946, specified the agency's field of operations. Controversially, this defined "persons of German ethnic origin" who had been expelled, or were to be expelled from their countries of birth into the postwar Germany, as individuals who would "not be the concern of the Organization. " This excluded from its purview a group that exceeded in number all the other European displaced persons put together. Also, because of disagreements between the Western allies and the Soviet Union, the IRO only worked in areas controlled by Western armies of occupation” (Wikipedia 2016) .

Your youngest grandchild, Hadassah. ” Gurs was a major internment camp in France, near Oloron-Sainte-Marie and 80 kilometers from the Spanish border. Established in 1939 to absorb Republican refugees from Spain, Gurs served later as a concentration camp for Jews from France and refugees from other countries. While under the administration of Vichy France (1940-1942) most non-Jewish prisoners were released and approximately 2000 Jews were permitted to emigrate. In 1941 Gurs held some 15, 000 prisoners. The camp was controlled by the Germans from 1942 to 1944, during which time several thousand inmates were deported to extermination camps in Poland. An unknown number succeeded in escaping and reaching Spain or hiding in Southern France. Gurs was liberated in the summer of 1944. No stamp or postmark, presume originally delivered in envelope.

The war had taken a terrible toll in casualties (more than 1% of the country's population was killed) , and the nation's fledgling economy was devastated. Compounding the dire situation was the fact that Israel faced economic demands unique to the new state, most especially the arrival of hundreds of thousands of immigrants. In Israel's early years, immigrants generally fell into two categories:  Holocaust survivors and Jewish refugees from Arab countries, ” who poured in as the British Blockade ended and Middle Eastern Jews fled or were expelled from their home countries. “Short on money, the country suffered food shortages and rationing, and the new arrivals had to be housed in primitive conditions. With his country financially overwhelmed, Ben-Gurion turned to the Diaspora community for help. In September 1950, he convened a meeting of American Jewish leaders at Jerusalem's King David Hotel, where he proposed issuing bonds to help provide Israel with a more secure economic foundation. Ben-Gurion's goals were two-fold: to obtain millions of dollars in funding for immigrant absorption and the construction of national infrastructure, and to engage Diaspora Jewry as active partners in building the new Jewish state. The American Jewish leaders supported Ben-Gurion's plan and, the following spring, the prime minister traveled to New York to help launch the inaugural Independence Issue at a gala Madison Square Garden ceremony…. Final results for 1951 more than doubled projections, exceeding $52 million” (Wikipedia, 2015) . Subjects: Finance - Israel.

1st edition. Original printed paper wrappers, small 8vo, 50 pages, 21 cm. In Polish. An early (1945!) post-war assortment of eye-witness reportsand documentation of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943, 2 years earlier. Table of contents on the last leaf, listing out all 22 essays, some of which are reprinted here for the first time from diaries and newspapers. Also reproduces to flyers honoring the ghetto and a photo of yizkor services to those who perished there. "Between July 22 and September 12, 1942, the German authorities deported or murdered around 300,000 Jews in the Warsaw ghetto. SS and police units deported 265,000 Jews to the Treblinka killing center and 11,580 to forced-labor camps. The Germans and their auxiliaries murdered more than 10,000 Jews in the Warsaw ghetto during the deportation operations. The German authorities granted only 35,000 Jews permission to remain in the ghetto, while more than 20,000 Jews remained in the ghetto in hiding. For the at least 55,000-60,000 Jews remaining in the Warsaw ghetto, deportation seemed inevitable. In response to the deportations, on July 28, 1942, several Jewish underground organizations created an armed self-defense unit known as the Jewish Combat Organization (Zydowska Organizacja Bojowa; ZOB). Rough estimates put the size of the ZOB at its formation at around 200 members. The Revisionist Party (right-wing Zionists known as the Betar) formed another resistance organization, the Jewish Military Union (Zydowski Zwiazek Wojskowy; ZZW). Although initially there was tension between the ZOB and the ZZW, both groups decided to work together to oppose German attempts to destroy the ghetto. At the time of the uprising, the ZOB had about 500 fighters in its ranks and the ZZW had about 250. While efforts to establish contact with the Polish military underground movement (Armia Krajowa, or Home Army) did not succeed during the summer of 1942, the ZOB established contact with the Home Army in October, and obtained a small number of weapons, mostly pistols and explosives, from Home Army contacts. In October 1942, SS chief Heinrich Himmler ordered the liquidation of the Warsaw ghetto and deportation of its able-bodied residents to forced labor camps in the Lublin District of the Generalgouvernement. In accordance with this order, German SS and police units tried to resume mass deportations of Jews from Warsaw on January 18, 1943. A group of Jewish fighters, armed with pistols, infiltrated a column of Jews being forced to the Umschlagplatz (transfer point) and, at a prearranged signal, broke ranks and fought their German escorts. Most of these Jewish fighters died in the battle, but the attack sufficiently disoriented the Germans to allow the Jews arranged in columns at the Umschlagplatz a chance to disperse. After seizing 5,000-6,500 ghetto residents to be deported, the Germans suspended further deportations on January 21. Encouraged by the apparent success of the resistance, which they believed may have halted deportations, members of the ghetto population began to construct subterranean bunkers and shelters in preparation for an uprising should the Germans attempt a final deportation of all remaining Jews in the reduced ghetto. The German forces intended to begin the operation to liquidate the Warsaw ghetto on April 19, 1943, the eve of Passover. When SS and police units entered the ghetto that morning, the streets were deserted. Nearly all of the residents of the ghetto had gone into hiding places or bunkers. The renewal of deportations was the signal for an armed uprising within the ghetto. ZOB commander Mordecai Anielewicz commanded the Jewish fighters in the Warsaw ghetto uprising. Armed with pistols, grenades (many of them homemade), and a few automatic weapons and rifles, the ZOB fighters stunned the Germans and their auxiliaries on the first day of fighting, forcing the German forces to retreat outside the ghetto wall....Though German forces broke the organized military resistance within days of the beginning of the uprising, individuals and small groups hid or fought the Germans for almost a month....The Warsaw ghetto uprising was the largest, symbolically most important Jewish uprising, and the first urban uprising, in German-occupied Europe. The resistance in Warsaw inspired other uprisings in ghettos (e.g., Bialystok and Minsk) and killing centers (Treblinka and Sobibor)" (USHMM 2018).Subjects: Warsaw (Poland) --History--Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, 1943.

The author gives numerous examples of specific atrocities committed in Poland which should have been included in the trial proceedings, lambasts the trial for not mentioning the liquidation of the Warsaw Ghetto; ends with the argument that 'totalitarianism' was not utilized as a category in the trial proceedings as this would immediately point to the continuing existence of other totalitarian states, namely, the USSR.

Also, marriage made it rightfully possible to produce ‘pure blood’ German children with the genetically correct German parents. Marriage was so vital to the Nazis because it was the true basis of their socio-political perspectives. In effect....In order to define Volksgemeinschaft, the Nazis constructed marriage by associating the relationship with modeled public male and private female roles, and with the assumption of procreating ‘pure blood’ Aryan children. The Nazis used marriage to define their Volksgemeinschaftbecause it enforced the vertical relationship in marriage into the Nazi based society and it would help increase the capacity and population of the Aryan race” (UCL, 2018) ., Holo17, 215

1st edition. Stapled. [4] leaves. 38 cm. Single sided typed transcription of the speech Alfred M. Landon gave by radio to a mass meeting in Madison Square Garden. “Thousands of persons gathered tonight in the Madison Square Garden, in a rally under the auspices of the American Jewish Congress, Jewish Labor Committee and several cooperating organizations, to hear Christian and Jewish leaders condemn Nazi terrorism in Poland and elsewhere and to adopt resolution protesting against the Lublin Jewish ‘reservation’ and other aspects of Reich persecution. The audience cheered speeches and resolutions which branded Germany as an enemy of civilization, warned that Nazi oppression threatened not alone the Jews but Christians and all of mankind, and called for renewed efforts to safeguard democracy and equal rights in this country. ” ("Nazi Terrorism, Reds Assailed at Mass Rally of All Faiths Here. " Jewish Telegraphic Agency 14 Dec 1939.) “The American Jewish Congress and Jewish Labor Committee planned today to send a delegation to Washington in the near future to present to the Government a resolution adopted at last night's mass meeting of 20, 000 persons in the Madison Square Garden appealing to President Roosevelt to express to the German Government ‘America's abhorrence and condemnation’ of oppression in Poland. The resolution was adopted after the capacity audience--it was announced that 8, 000 had been turned away--had heard Herbert Hoover, Alfred M. Landon, Mayor LaGuardia, William Green, Dr. Stephen S. Wise and others denounce anti-Jewish ‘bestialities’ in Poland. An impressive part of the program was the chanting of ‘El Mole Rachamim’ by a chorus of the Jewish Cantors-Ministers Association. Thousands in the audience, on the platform and even in the press section shed tears during the memorial prayer for the victims of the occupation of Poland. Hoover, who arrived unexpectedly, coming by airplane from Chicago, read a message which he had sent previously (JTA NEWS DEC. 14) , in which he denounced ‘the bestialities visited upon the people of the Jewish faith. ’ Mayor LaGuardia, who had come in by plane with Hoover, denounced ‘those who are responsible for the outrages and the cruelties which are being inflicted upon hundreds of thousands of innocent people, ’ and the ‘new cruelty of exploited, occupied lands that were taken contrary to all rules of civilization. ’ He declared ‘there is being crystallized throughout the country today, throughout the world, a public opinion that will be visited upon the culprits not only in their day but for centuries to come. ’ Landon, speaking by radio from Topeka, said that ‘this evening you are expressing the conscience of America, a conscience that refuses to be silent in the midst of persecution. ’ He declared: ‘The time will come when the plain, average people of Germany will want to return to the amenities of international life. Decent treatment of all minority civilian groups will have a profound effect on our future respect for and appreciation of the German people. ’ ("Roosevelt to Get Rally’s Resolution Asking Action on Nazi Oppression.

Binding: Paperback
Original printed wrappers. 4to. 11 pages. 30cm. In German. Compact tabloid format internally, with broadsheet printed covers. Title translates as “The Curse and Inescapable Destiny of the Jews. ” Written by Kurt Reiss, under the pseudonym Abraham Cohen. This Antisemitic, millenarian polemic situates itself alongside the numerous Antisemitic conspiracy theories clinging to the fringes of early Nazi propaganda, a kind of millenialist Nazi-Zionism that calls for the Jews to be returned to Palestine to bring about the second coming of Jesus. In this piece, Reiss celebrates Hitler as “the latest confirmation“ that the Jews are the “chosen people”, and sees Hitler as a “guide” and “shepherd” that will prevent the assimilation of the Jewish people and help bring them to Palestine to facilitate the final “salvation”. “Kurt [Reiss] left school at the age of 15 and developed an interest in religion. He believed that the Jews should recognize Jesus Christ as their Messiah. He also attempted to secure patents for mechanical inventions. Kurt convinced the family to emigrate to Canada. According to a family member Kurt suffered from mental illness. He was unable to work and spent his days writing notes about his daily activities and his religious ideas. His sister Lola always took care of him. ” (Leo Baeck Institute) OCLC lists 3 copies worldwide. (Yeshiva Univ. , National Libr. Of the Czech Republic, Natl. Libr.

Publishers cloth. 8vo. 171, [1] pages. 21 cm. First edition. In Norwegian. Title translates as: “People among the people: a book on anti-Semitism and xenophobia. ” Written by Leo Eitinger (1912 - 1996) , Holocaust survivor, Norwegian psychiatrist, and Human Rights advocate. “He devoted a long period studying late-onset psychological trauma amongst Holocaust survivors, wherein Holocaust survivors like Paul Celan, Primo Levi and many others committed suicide due to holocaust trauma, several decades after the experience, towards late adulthood. Leo Eitinger was born in Lomnice, Moravia, at that time a town in the Austrian-Hungarian empire; currently the capital of Jihomoravský kraj and belonging to the Czech Republic. He studied medicine at the Masaryk University of Brno, graduated in 1937, and was drafted as an officer into the Czech Air Force. In 1939 he fled Nazi persecution of Jews and came to Norway as a refugee with the help of Nansenhjelpen. Upon arriving in Norway, he arranged for Jewish children to escape from Czechoslovakia to settle in the Jewish orphanage in Oslo. He was given permission to work as a resident in psychiatry in Norway in Bodø, but the permission was revoked by the Nazis after they invaded the country in 1940. He stayed underground from January 1941 until he was arrested in March 1942. He was imprisoned in various places throughout Norway and was deported on the ship Gotenland on February 24, 1943, arriving by train via Berlin at the concentration camp at Auschwitz (where the number 105268 was tattoed on his arm) and was later moved to Buchenwald. Of the 762 Jews deported from Norway to German concentration camps, only 23 survived - Leo Eitinger was one of them. After returning to Norway he specialised in psychiatry. In 1966 Leo Eitinger was appointed professor of psychiatry at the University of Oslo and became Head of the University Psychiatric Clinic. After the war Leo Eitinger allocated all his time and efforts to the study of human suffering with emphasis on clinical psychiatry, in particular victimology and disaster psychiatry. He conducted several landmark studies about the long-term psychological and physical effects of extreme stress and also about being a refugee. Some of the major works have been published; e. G. Concentration camp survivors in Norway and Israel (1964) ; Mortality and morbidity after extreme stress (1973) ; Strangers in the world (1981) ” (University of Oslo description) Subjects: Antisemitism -- History.
