Statement of ResponsibilityDavid Weinberg.
Creators & ContributorsWeinberg, David H. (author)
Summary"David Weinberg’s multi-national study, focusing on France, Belgium, and the Netherlands, offers a wide lens through which to view post-war efforts to help Jewish communal life recover its voice and its raison d’être. By underscoring the similarities in the situation facing Jews across borders, he demonstrates how the three communities with the aid of international Jewish organizations utilized unprecedented means to meet unprecedented challenges. His thematic approach adds much to our understanding of post-war European Jewish life." —Publisher
