Die Judenstadt von Lublin by Majer Bałaban( Book )

40 editions published between 1919 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das hier wiederaufgelegte Buch über "Die Judenstadt von Lublin", eine bedeutende historische Quelle, erschien zu einem ungewöhnlichen, ja unglücklichen Zeitpunkt: 1919 im Jüdischen Verlag in Berlin. Unmittelbar nach dem Zusammenbruch des Kaiserreichs in einer Phase politischer und wirtschaftlicher Krisen konnte ein Buch über die Geschichte einer jüdischen Gemeinde in Ostpolen, von einem polnischen Historiker in deutscher Sprache verfasst, nur eine begrenzte Resonanz erfahren. Mit dem Ende des Ersten Weltkrieges verlagerte sich zudem das Zentrum zionistischer Aktivitäten nach London. In den Wirren, Vernichtungen und politischen Zerstörungen, die der Zweite Weltkrieg in den deutsch-Polnischen Beziehungen zur Folge hatte, ist das Buch dann endgültig verschollen; in einzelnen Bibliotheken und im persönlichen Privatbesitz sind einige Exemplare erhalten. Anfang der nenziger Jahre erschien in einem kleinen polnischen Verlag eine polnische Übersetzung von Jan Doktór, dem heutigen Mitarbeiter des Jüdischen Historischen Instituts in Warschau, dem wir die neuerliche Übersetzung verdanken; auch dieses Buch ist seit langem vergriffen
The dybbuk by S An-Ski( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in Yiddish and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This eeerie ghost story, made in pre-World War II Poland and employing the resources of the Warsaw Yiddish Theater, is considered one of the most heavily atmospheric of the Yiddish talkies and is steeped in religion, ritual, folklore and supernaturalism. Although betrothed by their fathers at birth, Khonen and Leah grow up unaware of each other's existence. When Khonen, an impoverished and otherwordly student, appears in the town of Brenits, Leah is drawn to him as he is to her. However, Leah's avaricious father prefers a wealthier suitor. Desperate, Khonen uses his knowledge of the Cabbalah to conjure the aid of occult powers but dies in the process. At the moment that she is about to be wed, Leah is possessed by Khonen's spirit in the form of a dybbuk. The venerable tsadek of Miropol discovers the source of the possession and invokes the threat of excommunication to release the spirit. At the conclusion, Leah joins her beloved Khonen in death
