About the Authors
  • This is the first book to examine the response of the British Jewish community to the destruction of the Jewish community of mainland Europe in World War II. Richard Bolchover charts the reponse of leading Jews and of Jewish organizations to the unfolding tragedy. In the process he raises controversial questions about the Anglo-Jewish community's priorities, and the way in which it organized itself. This study of Jewish political thought and culture marks a serious and provocative departure from the traditionally dominant trend in Anglo-Jewish historiography.

    • Major new study of an important British response to central historical event of the twentieth century
    • Bolchover's analysis of British Jewry's political culture will inevitably cause controversy, and should generate very wide review coverage
    • Should appeal to non-specialist audience within Jewish community

    "A comprehensive though succinct work." The Canadian Jewish News

    "Bolchover joins an interesting and active generation of scholars who have been revising the whig interpretation of Jewish history as the story of the triumph of liberalism and toleration. ... Bolchover is a sohisticated analyst." Journal of Interdisciplinary History
