Jewish Life in Cracow 1918-1939

Martin, Sean

Re-evaluates the way Jews lived among Poles without abandoning their Jewish heritage. By focusing on the history of the Jewish press, schools and other cultural institutions, the book examines how Jews in the same community created varying ethnic and national identities in order to cope with the demands of living in the majority Polish society. Being based on sources in Yiddish, Polish and Hebrew makes the book a thorough study of one of Poland's largest Jewish communities.
