  • A Personal Reflection on the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising
    • Abstract: Inherently subjective, even narcissistic, personal reminiscences are in many ways contradictory to the kind of scholarly enterprise that an academic journal represents. Nevertheless, short personal excursions into history might now and then work in order to put some otherwise unavailable perspective on important issues which do concern historians and other scholars. In that spirit, I offer this brief statement about how I learned about the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, how I performed it, and how it did in fact come to be an element in my scholarship, an enterprise that I hope has always conformed to the highest dictates of the profession.I present this as an introduction to some excellent articles on the long life of ...

  • “Propaganda in the Best and Purest Sense of the Word”: Early
           Representations of the Warsaw Ghetto in American Culture
    • Abstract: On Passover eve, April 19, 1943, Jews in the sealed Warsaw Ghetto staged the oft-remembered revolt against their Nazi oppressors. Despite modest numbers and insufficient weapons, against all odds, a small group of Jewish militants held off 2,000 well-armed SS men for twenty-eight days; in comparison, the entire Polish Army had fallen to the Nazis in a similar amount of time after the Blitzkrieg invasion on September 1, 1939. From the day news of the uprising reached the outside world until the current moment, the courageous actions of the ghetto partisans have captured the American imagination. The Warsaw Ghetto’s culminating affair has metamorphosed into a potent emblem of the war and Jewish life in Europe, nearly ... Read More

  • The Jewish Heroes of Warsaw: The Meaning of the Revolt in the First Year
           after the Uprising
    • Abstract: On April 23, 1943, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) delivered news of the Warsaw Ghetto Revolt, relaying a report received in Stockholm the day before with the headline, “Nazis Start Mass-Execution of Warsaw Jews on Passover; Victims Broadcast S.O.S.” Within two weeks, observers were describing the events as “miraculous,” beginning the effort to identify the heroes of Warsaw. In less than two months, calls emerged to make April 19 an annual day to celebrate Jewish heroism. By the first anniversary after the uprising, Jewish communities organized solemn commemorations in New York, London, Tel Aviv, and elsewhere to recall the “Masada of Warsaw” as a “fortress of freedom.”Through an examination of the ways in ...

  • The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising at Nuremberg
    • Abstract: The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising is the prevailing symbol of Jewish resistance during the Holocaust. Remembrance and commemoration of the revolt are usually associated with memorial days, monuments, museums, history books, novels, and films. But in the first decade and a half after World War II the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising played a role also on another stage—in the courtroom. It figured prominently in the 1951 trial of SS commander Jürgen Stroop in Warsaw, a trial that has been largely forgotten, at least in the West, and in the iconic 1961 Eichmann Trial in Jerusalem. But there was an earlier, famous trial whose proceedings invoked the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising—the 1945–46 International Military Tribunal (IMT), or the ... Read More

  • “A Struggle Unparalleled in Human History”: Survivors Remember the
           Warsaw Ghetto Uprising
    • Abstract: In Riverside Park in Manhattan, at 83rd Street, an unassuming stone in the ground, surrounded by a modest garden, reads: “This is the site of the American Memorial to the heroes of the Warsaw ghetto battle April-May 1943 and to the six million Jews of Europe martyred in the cause of liberty.” It’s a peaceful spot, with only the hum of the West Side Highway providing an atmospheric vibration, and runners silently jogging past, probably oblivious to the memorial stone. The text has a lot packed into a short sentence, a jumble of different aims, attaching two different readings not only of the ghetto fighters, but also of the victims: Jewish heroes, but also heroes of all humankind. It reflects the tension between ... Read More

  • Red Hot Mama: The Life of Sophie Tucker by Lauren Rebecca Sklaroff, and:
           The Eddie Cantor Story: A Jewish Life in Performance and Politics by David
           Weinstein (review)
    • Abstract: In the early decades of the twentieth century, many of the performers aspiring to stardom on the stages and silent screens of America were Jewish immigrants and the children of immigrants. Most of them, fleeing the shtetls and crowded cities of Eastern Europe, brought the inflections and particular worldview of Yiddish language and culture to their lives in America. Among the many fields that would be radically altered by this population were most aspects of the popular culture industry: song-writing and promotion (including the production of sheet music), nickelodeons and movie theaters, vaudeville and other popular stage performances, and the development of both the film industry and the Broadway musical.Several ...

It asks the journal’s readers to think about the pillars of the field and the broader materiality of historiography, as it demands all historians to pay ... Read More

  • Jews and Jewish Identity in Latin America: Historical, Cultural, and
           Literary Perspectives ed. by Margalit Bejarano, et al. (review)
    • Abstract: From the mid-nineteenth to early twentieth centuries, Jewish migrants sought refuge from persecution in the Russian and Ottoman Empires. While many of them chose the United States, others sought religious freedom and economic security in Latin America, which was experiencing rapid growth and political stability. These migrants—both Ashkenazic and Sephardic Jews—settled in countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, and Cuba. By mid-century, immigrants and their descendants grew to a population of more than half a million in the region, with Buenos Aires possessing one of the largest communities in the Americas, second only to New York City. Over time, Latin American Jews made significant contributions to the ... Read More

  • Cities of Refuge: German Jews in London and New York, 1935–1945 by Lori
           Gemeiner Bihler (review)
    • Abstract: Lori Gemeiner Bihler’s comparative study of the German Jewish experience in London and New York “challenges the widely held notion that immigrants integrated into American society because they were recipients of a greater tradition of tolerance and diversity” (xi). Her fascinating study is based on archival collections of German Jewish refugees, interviews, refugee publications such as Aufbau (New York), and a wide array of other primary and secondary source materials. The book reveals divergent experiences with integration in different places. Bihler asks “why German Jews in London felt pressure to appear British but did not self-identify as such, while at the same time, German Jews in New York looked and sounded ... Read More

  • God’s Country: Christian Zionism in America by Samuel Goldman
           (review)
    • Abstract: In God’s Country: Christian Zionism in America, political scientist Samuel Goldman offers a sweeping overview of the relationship between Americans and Zionism, arguing that Christian Zionism is not a new idea but rather one grounded in three ongoing forces: covenantal theology, prophecy, and cultural affinity. At various points in American history, starting with the Puritans and ending with the modern Christian Right, each of these forces has been emphasized to varying degrees. Goldman’s argument is that the most modern incarnation—a sensational prophecy emphasis by dispensationalist fundamentalists—belies the less sensational influence of the others and discounts the long engagement with Zionism inherent in ...

  • American Jewry and the Re-Invention of the East European Jewish Past by
           Markus Krah (review)
    • Abstract: Markus Krah argues that during the period between 1940 and 1965, American Jews “constructed a usable East European Jewish past for their present needs” (14), where conflicting visions of Jewish identity in postwar America utilized that past for their own purposes. The ways in which American Jews discussed, presented, cultivated, and imagined the Eastern European past were an important part of the shift “from a mode of integration to particularism” (258). With the ethnic wave of the 1960s and 1970s, “The East European Jewish past served as a basis for a proud distinctiveness” and a “new, particularistic, positive Jewishness” emerged (258–259).This is a cultural history study that focuses on Jewish elites ...

  • Bad Rabbi: And Other Strange but True Stories from the Yiddish Press by
           Eddy Portnoy (review)
    • Abstract: At the 1908 Czernowitz Conference for the Yiddish Language, writers, teachers, and philosophers and linguists gathered together to fight the denigration of the Yiddish language. Yiddishists dedicated themselves to standardizing the language, bringing Yiddish scholarship into institutions of high learning, and translating canonical texts into Yiddish, all in hopes of recasting the derided zhargon as a literary language with a high culture.In Bad Rabbi: And Other Strange but True Stories from the Yiddish Press, Eddy Portnoy carries the banner of Yiddishism from a contrasting perspective. Bringing together stories of Yiddishland’s low culture, Portnoy reminds us that, only a century ago, “about three-quarters of the ... Read More

  • The New Ethnic Studies in Latin America ed. by Raanan Rein, Stefan Rinke,
           and Nadia Zysman (review)
    • Abstract: This compilation of essays brings to light the history of unaffiliated Jews, women, and other members of Jewish Latin American life who have not been represented in previous historiography. Many of the essays compare cultural experiences by Jews and people of Middle Eastern descent. This comparative perspective is an important contribution because it portrays the fluidity of ethnic identities as they evolve due to interacting with other groups over time. The focus is mostly on Chile and Argentina.Jeffrey Lesser’s chapter “Remaking Ethnic Studies in the Age of Identities” lays down the theoretical framework for the volume.
