From catastrophe to power : Holocaust survivors and the emergence of Israel by Idith Zertal( Book )
15 editions published in 1998 in English and Polish and held by 529 libraries worldwide
Idith Zertal boldly interprets a much-revered chapter in contemporary Jewish and Zionist history: the clandestine immigration to Palestine of Jewish refugees, most of them Holocaust survivors, which was organized by Palestinian Zionists just after World War II. Events that captured the attention of the world, such as the Exodus affair in the summer of 1947, are seen here in a strikingly new light. At the center of Zertal's book is the Mossad, a small, unorthodox Zionist organization whose mission beginning in 1938 was to bring Jews to Palestine in order to subvert the British quotas on Jewish immigration. The Mossad's modes of operation, its ideology and politics, its structure and history, and its collective human profile here are scrutinized as never before. Zertal's story sweeps across four continents and encompasses a range of political cultures and international forces. But beneath this story unfolds a darker, more complex plot: the special encounter between the Zionist revolutionary collective and the Jewish remnant after the Holocaust
Makers of Jewish modernity : thinkers, artists, leaders, and the world they made ( Book )
3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 229 libraries worldwide
"This superb collection presents more than forty incisive portraits of leading Jewish thinkers, artists, scientists, and other public figures of the last hundred years who, in their own unique ways, engaged with and helped shape the modern world. Makers of Jewish Modernity features entries on political figures such as Walther Rathenau, Rosa Luxemburg, and David Ben-Gurion; philosophers and critics such as Walter Benjamin, Hannah Arendt, Isaiah Berlin, Jacques Derrida, and Judith Butler; and artists such as Mark Rothko. The book provides fresh insights into the lives and careers of novelists like Franz Kafka, Saul Bellow, and Philip Roth; the filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen; social scientists such as Sigmund Freud; religious leaders and thinkers such as Avraham Kook and Martin Buber; and many others. Written by a diverse group of leading contemporary scholars from around the world, these vibrant and frequently surprising portraits offer a global perspective that highlights the multiplicity of Jewish experience and thought. A reference book like no other, Makers of Jewish Modernity includes an informative general introduction that situates its subjects within the broader context of Jewish modernity as well as a rich selection of photos."--Publisher's description

La nación y la muerte : la Shoá en el discurso y la política de Israel by Idith Zertal( Book )
6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 18 libraries worldwide
Desde la creación de Israel, la Shoá y sus millones de muertos han estado siempre presentes en la legislación, las plegarias, las ceremonias, los tribunales, los centros escolares, la prensa, la poesía, las inscripciones funerarias, los monumentos y los libros conmemorativos. La sociedad israelí se ha definido constantemente en relación con la Shoá y sus víctimas, a través de un doble movimiento de expiación de la culpa atribuida a dichas víctimas y redención de su muerte. Idith Zertal analiza con precisión y lucidez esta compleja y ambigua relación. Auschwitz, cuyo retorno se percibe como una eventualidad permanente, se ha convertido en la principal referencia frente a un mundo sistemáticamente definido como hostil y antisemita. Lejos de toda polémica, Idith Zertal ofrece una mirada conmovedora, inquietante y muy documentada sobre la sociedad israelí, la construcción de la memoria colectiva, la cultura y la política de la muerte
