Drawing on current literary theory, which questions the very nature of autobiographical writing and its relationship to what we normally designate as the truth, and, to a lesser extent, the new cognitive neurosciences, Michael Stanislawski analyzes a number of crucial and complex autobiographical texts written by Jews through the ages."--Jacket
For whom do I toil? : Judah Leib Gordon and the crisis of Russian Jewry by Michael Stanislawski( Book )

13 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full-length biography, in any language, of Judah Leib Gordon, one of the pivotal intellectual and cultural figures in Russian Jewry, and the most important Hebrew poet of the nineteenth century. Setting Gordon's life and work amidst the political, cultural, and religious upheavals of his society, Stanislawski attempts to counter traditional stereotypical readings of Eastern European Jewish history. Judah Leib Gordon's personal story is a fascinating drama that both symbolizes and summarizes the cultural and political challenges facing Russian Jewry at a crucial time in history, challenges that remain pertinent and controversial today
A murder in Lemberg : politics, religion, and violence in modern Jewish history by Michael Stanislawski( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How could a Jew kill a Jew for religious and political reasons? Many people asked this question after an Orthodox Jew assassinated Israeli Prime Minister Itshak Rabin in 1995. But historian Michael Stanislawksi couldn't forget it, and he decided to find out everything he could about an obscure and much earlier event that was uncannily similar to Rabin's murder: the 1848 killing - by an Orthodox Jew - of the Reform rabbi of Lemberg (now L'viv, Ukraine). Eventually, Stanislawski concluded that this was the first murder of a Jewish leader by a Jew since antiquity, a prelude to twentieth-century assassinations of Jews by Jews, and a turning point in Jewish history. Based on records unavailable for decades, A Murder in Lemberg is the first book about this fascinating case. On September 6, 1848, Abraham Ber Pilpel entered the kitchen of Rabbi Abraham Kohn and his family and poured arsenic in the soup that was being prepared for their dinner. Within hours, the rabbi and his infant daughter were dead. Was Kohn's murder part of a conservative Jewish backlash to Jewish reform and liberalization in a year of European revolution? Or was he killed simply because he threatened taxes that enriched Lemberg's Orthodox leaders? Vividly recreating the dramatic story of the murder, the trial that followed, and the political and religious fallout of both, Stanislawski tries to answer these questions and others. In the process, he reveals the surprising diversity of Jewish life in mid-nineteenth-century Eastern Europe. Far from being uniformly Orthodox, as is often assumed, there was a struggle between Orthodox and Reform Jews that was so intense that it might have led to murder."--Jacket

Ein Gesellschaftsroman über den Untergang des bürgerlich-jüdischen Odessa zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts. Eine Wiederentdeckung - Die "Buddenbrooks" am Schwarzen Meer*Im Jahr 1935 unternimmt Vladimir Jabotinsky, streitbarer Mitbegründer der zionistischen Bewegung und brillanter Feuilletonist, eine imaginär-romanhafte Reise in das alte Odessa, in dem er 1880 geboren wurde, seine Kindheit und jungen Jahre verbrachte.*Die Fünf: eine elegische Erinnerung an eine vergehende Welt, verkörpert in den fünf Geschwistern der Familie Milgrom, die in den politisch-kulturellen Wirren ihrer Zeit, zwischen revolutionärer Gewalt und Assimilation, heranwachsen.*Das damalige Odessa ist noch eine kosmopolitisch tolerante Stadt am Schwarzen Meer, ein Vielvölkergemisch, in dem das Ukrainische und das Russische, das Jüdische und das Deutsche, das Armenische und das Griechische nebeneinander existieren. Durchdrungen vom Parfüm dieser sinnlichen, vitalen und polyglotten Prosa, begegnet uns in Vladimir Jabotinskys Roman vom Verfall einer Familie ein intimes Odessa mit seinen Plätzen, Strassen und Cafés - ein theatralisches, tragisches Menschenschauspiel. Es sind die letzten Tage von Odessa. Bis vor kurzem war der 1880 in Odessa geborene Vladimir Jabotinsky allenfalls als radikaler Zionist in Deutschland bekannt. Mit der Veröffentlichung von "Die Fünf" in der Anderen Bibliothek (Band 336, wegen des grossen Erfolges aber nur noch als Erfolgsausgabe lieferbar) hat sich das geändert: "Ein grossartiger Autor" (Die Zeit); "Ein Schatz aus Wörtern" (Die Welt); "Meisterlich" (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung); "Ein grosses Buch" (Süddeutsche Zeitung)

Among the nationalities : Jewish refugees, Jewish nationality, and Czechoslovak statebuilding by Rebekah Klein-Pejšová( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

While Czechoslovakia offered the most favorable environment for the Jews of its neighbors, renounced anti-Semitism, supported Zionism and Jewish national rights, significant challenges to the Jewish relationship with the state remained. This was particularly true in Slovakia, where Jews were suspect as potential accomplices to the irredentist ambitions of the Interwar Hungarian regime due to their history of alignment with the Hungarian nation. The process of integrating the territory of Slovakia had the most significant impact on how the Czechoslovak state and the surrounding Slovak population viewed expressions of Jewish nationality among the Jews there
