    schema:description "This edited collection explores the ways in which Jewish communities and individuals across Europe and the wider world experienced, interpreted and remembered the 'war to end all wars'. Just decaded after the experience of intense persecution and struggle for recognition that marked the end of the nineteenth century, Jewish men and women around the globe found themselves drawn into a conflict of unprecedented violence and destruction.
