Description In his three-volume history, Antony Polonsky provides a comprehensive survey-socio-political, economic, and religious-of the Jewish communities of eastern Europe from to the present. Until the Second World War, this was the heartland of the Jewish world: nearly three and a half million Jews lived in Poland alone, while nearly three million more lived in the Soviet Union. Although the majority of the Jews of Europe and the United States, and many of the Jews of Israel, originate from these lands, their history there is not well known. Rather, it is the subject of mythologizing and stereotypes that fail both to bring out the specific features of the Jewish civilization which emerged there and to illustrate what was lost.

Jewish life, though often poor materially, was marked by a high degree of spiritual and ideological intensity and creativity. Antony Polonsky recreates this lost world-brutally cut down by the Holocaust and less brutally but still seriously damaged by the Soviet attempt to destroy Jewish culture. Wherever possible, the unfolding of history is illustrated by contemporary Jewish writings to show how Jews felt and reacted to the complex and difficult situations in which they found themselves.

History of the Jews in Russia and Poland, Volume 1 [of 3] by Simon Dubnow

He is too good a historian to confuse the history of Jewish life with the German policies that brought Jewish death. The barely visible commitment in these three wonderful volumes is to rescue a world from polemic, for the sake of history. The scope is immense and the author does an impressive job of synthesizing a vast literature. This trilogy will no doubt serve as a standard history of east European Jewry for a long time. Cienciala, Polish Review 'We can only commend Antony Polonsky for his massive effort to explain seven centuries of Jewish history in a mere 2, pages.

Polonsky's strength lies in his ability to illuminate intellectual and cultural developments. Because of the excellent bibliographies, extensive annotation, and wonderful maps included in each volume, any reader wishing to read in greater detail about Polish and Russian Jewry will have plenty of resources to enable the search.

While underlining the unique features and achievements of the Jewish communal experience he authoritatively integrates them into the history of the countries in which Jews lived. Incorporating current, ground-breaking scholarship from North America, Israel, and Europe these beautifully narrated volumes should not only be seen as a staple of university courses, but also as a must-read for anyone attempting to understand any aspect of modern Jewish history and religious tradition, wherever it may be playing out.

With this extremely important book, Antony Polonsky not only writes history but, following the example of his illustrious predecessors, makes it. Simply put, these volumes are required reading for anyone with a serious interest in East European history or for anyone looking for a scholarly assessment of a particular feature of Polish or Russian Jewish history.
