About this item

International contributors to this book investigate the development of French Jewish identity within the context of the history of Jews in France in the 19th and 20th centuries. The book begins with a historiographical essay on the Jews of modern France, reporting on recent trends in the researching and writing of modern French Jewish history, especially research on Jews in postwar France. The rest of the book is organized in thematic sections on Jewish integration and Jewish distinctiveness, Jews and politics, and imagining Jews and performing Jewishness. Some subjects explored include French-Jewish filmmakers and the Middle East conflict, American Jewish aid in post-WWII France, the education of working-class Jewish girls in Paris, the trail of Jacob Benjamin 1792-93, and Jewish funerals in the Jewish press in Paris. While the book is written mainly for scholars and researchers, it may also interest general readers. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
