The lion and the star : gentile-Jewish relations in three Hessian communities, 1919-1945 by Jonathan C Friedman( )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Friedman examines three German communities of different sizes - Frankfurt am Main, Giessen, and Geisenheim. Symbolized by the Hessian heraldic lion, these communities represent a cross-section of both Gentile and Jewish society in Germany during the Weimar and Nazi years. Conducting research in the United States, Germany, England, and Israel, he gleaned information from interviews, memoirs, diaries, letters, newspapers, church and synagogue records, censuses, government documents, and reports from Nazi and resistance organizations. Friedman's comparative analysis offers a balanced response to recent scholarly works condemning the entire German people for their complicity in the Holocaust."--BOOK JACKET
Rainbow Jews : Jewish and gay identity in the performing arts by Jonathan C Friedman( )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rainbow Jews deals with the intersection of gay and jewish identity in American and Israeli film and theater from the 1960s to the present. Its main area of interest is the extent to which Jewish creative voices in the performing arts have constructed multidimensional images of, and a welcoming public space for, the gay, lesbian, and transgendered community as a whole. Through a close reading of numerous American and Israeli plays and films, Jonathan Friedman evaluates some of the key conventions and tropes that have been employed to construct, critique, and reflect the social reality of the connection between Jewishness and gay identity in the United States and Israel."--Jacket
The Routledge history of the Holocaust by Jonathan C Friedman( )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The genocide of Jewish and non-Jewish civilians perpetrated by the German regime during World War Two continues to confront scholars with elusive questions even after nearly seventy years and hundreds of studies. This multi-contributory work is a landmark publication that sees experts renowned in their field addressing these questions in light of current research. Serving as a comprehensive introduction to the history of the Holocaust, this volume also adds depth to current debate, both geographically and topically, assessing the Final Solution as the German occupation instituted it across Europe and covering issues which have previously been under-investigated, such as the problem of prosecuting war crimes, gender and Holocaust experience, the persecution of non-Jewish victims, and the Holocaust in post-war culture"--Publisher description

Performing difference : representations of "the other" in film and theater by Jonathan C Friedman( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Performing Difference is a compilation of seventeen essays from some of the leading scholars in history, criticism, film, and theater studies. Each author examines the portrayal of groups and individuals that have been traditionally marginalized or excluded from dominant historical narratives. As a meeting point of several fields of study, this book is organized around three meta-themes: race, gender, and genocide. Included are analyses of films and theatrical productions from the United States, as well as essays on cinema from Southern and Central America, Europe, and the Middle East. Topically, the contributing authors write about the depiction of race, ethnicities, gender and sexual orientation, and genocides. This volume assesses how the performing arts have aided in the social construction of the "other" in differing contexts. Its fundamental premise is that performance is powerful, and its unifying thesis is that the arts remain a major forum for advancing a more nuanced and humane vision of social outcasts, not only in the realm of national imaginations, but in social relations as well."--Jacket
Speaking the unspeakable : essays on sexuality, gender, and Holocaust survivor memory by Jonathan C Friedman( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of genocide in cinema : atrocities on screen by William Hewitt( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The organization 'Genocide Watch' estimates that 100 million civilians around the globe have lost their lives as a result of genocide in only the past sixty years. Over the same period, the visual arts in the form of documentary footage has aided international efforts to document genocide and prosecute those responsible, but this book argues that fictional representation occupies an equally important and problematic place in the process of shaping minds on the subject. Edited by two of the leading experts in the field, this title analyzes fictional and semi-fictional portrayals of genocide, focusing on, amongst others, the repression of indigenous populations in Australia, the genocide of Native Americans in the 19th century, the Herero genocide, Armenia, the Holodomor (Stalin's policy of starvation in Ukraine), the Nazi Holocaust, Nanking and Darfur

A pioneer of Holocaust education in the United States, Saul S. Friedman (1937-2013) was born on March 8, 1937 in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. After receiving his Ph. D. from Ohio State University in 1969, he became a professor in the history department at Youngstown State University, where he taught for nearly forty years. In that time, he developed an international reputation as a leading scholar of the Holocaust, publishing twelve books, dozens of articles and award winning documentaries. He was a leader in the Youngstown Jewish community as well, and he received numerous awards for his service, including the Guardian of the Menorah Award from B'Nai B'rith, the Triumphant Spirit Award from the Youngstown Jewish Community Relations Council, and the Ohio Humanities Council's Richard Bjornson Lifetime Achievement Award for Service to the Humanities. He was also instrumental in the establishment of Holocaust and Genocide Studies at West Chester University in West Chester, Pennsylvania. The culmination of his work came in 2000, when he received an endowment from the Clayman Family of Youngstown to establish a Judaic Studies program at YSU
