  • Fresh Woundsby Donald L. Niewyk

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99

    Every student of the Holocaust knows the crucial importance of survivors' testimonies in reconstructing the crime. Most such accounts, however, were recorded years or even decades after the end of World War II. The survivor narratives that make up this volume, in contrast, were gathered immediately after the war. In 1946, Russian-born American psychologist... more...

  • From Prejudice to Persecutionby Bruce F. Pauley

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99

    According to Simon Wiesenthal, nearly half of the crimes associated with the Holocaust were committed by Austrians, who comprised just 8.5 percent of the population of Hitler's Greater German Reich. Bruce Pauley's book explains this phenomenon by providing a history of Austrian anti-Semitism and Jewish responses to it from the Middle Ages to the present,... more...

  • The Provincialsby Eli N. Evans

    The University of North Carolina Press 2006; US$ 22.99

    In this classic portrait of Jews in the South, Eli N. Evans takes readers inside the nexus of southern and Jewish histories, from the earliest immigrants to the present day. Evoking the rhythms and heartbeat of Jewish life in the Bible belt, Evans weaves together chapters of recollections from his youth and early years in North Carolina with chapters... more...

  • Troubled Memoryby Lawrence N. Powell

    The University of North Carolina Press 2003; US$ 29.99

    Troubled Memory is also a dramatic testament to how the experiences of survivors as new Americans spurred their willingness to bear witness. Perhaps the only family to survive the liquidation of the Warsaw Ghetto as a group, the Skoreckis evaded deportation to Treblinka, by posing as Aryans and ultimately made their way to New Orleans, where they... more...

  • Simone Weilby Thomas R. Nevin

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99

    Over fifty years after her death, Simone Weil (1909-1943) remains one of the most searching religious inquirers and political thinkers of the twentieth century. Albert Camus said she had a "madness for truth." She rejected her Jewishness and developed a strong interest in Catholicism, although she never joined the Catholic church. Both an activist... more...

  • Down Homeby Leonard Rogoff

    A sweeping chronicle of Jewish life in the Tar Heel State from colonial times to the present, this beautifully illustrated volume incorporates oral histories, original historical documents, and profiles of fascinating individuals.

  • Jacob Neusnerby Aaron W. Hughes

    NYU Press 2016; US$ 34.00

    Jacob Neusner (born 1932) is one of the most important figures in the shaping of modern American Judaism. He was pivotal in transforming the study of Judaism from an insular project only conducted by?and of interest to?religious adherents to one which now flourishes in the secular setting of the university. He is also one of the most colorful, creative,... more...

  • Between German and Hebrewby Lina Barouch

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 76.16

    This book traces the German-Hebrew language contact-zones in which Gershom Scholem, Werner Kraft and Ludwig Strauss created in Germany and in Jerusalem in the 1920s and 30s. Set in the contexts of cultural marginality, modernist literature, and linguistic dislocation, Barouch exposes the writings of Scholem, Kraft and Strauss as unique... more...

  • Fragments of Isabellaby Isabella Leitner

    Open Road Media 2016; US$ 9.99

    The deeply moving true account of a young Jewish woman?s imprisonment by the Nazis at the Auschwitz death camp.   On May 29, 1944, the day after Isabella Katz?s twenty-third birthday, she, her family, and all the Jews in the ghetto in Kisvárda, Hungary, were rounded up by Nazi storm troopers, packed into cattle cars, and deported to Auschwitz.... more...

  • Extraterritorial Dreamsby Sarah Abrevaya Stein

    University of Chicago Press 2016; US$ 30.00

    We tend to think of citizenship as something that is either offered or denied by a state. Modern history teaches otherwise. Reimagining citizenship as a legal spectrum along which individuals can travel, Extraterritorial Dreams explores the history of Ottoman Jews who sought, acquired, were denied or stripped of citizenship in Europe in the late... more...
