Gay, Peter:  
My German Question : Growing Up in Nazi Berlin

Publisher: New Haven, Yale University Press, 1998 (1st Edition).
xii + 208pp with b/w archive photo illus. In this poignant book, a renowned historian tells of his youth as an assimilated, antireligious Jew in Nazi Germany from 1933-1939 - "the story" says Peter Gay, "of a poisoning and how I dealt with it". With his customary elqouence and analytic acumen, Gay describes his family, the life they led, and the reasons they did not emigrate sooner, and he explores his own ambivalent feelings - then and now - toward Germany and the Germans. Gay relates that the early years of the Nazi regime were relatively benign for his family: as a schoolboy at the Goethe Gymnasium he experienced no ridicule or attacks, his father's business prospered, and most of the family's non-Jewish friends remained supportive. He devised survival strategies - becoming a stamp collector and a passionate soccer fan - that served as screens to block out the increasingly oppressive world around him. Even before the events of 1938-39, culminating in Kristallnacht, the family was convinced that they must leave Germany. Peter Gay describes the bravery and ingenuity of his father in working out this agonizing emigration process, the courage of the non-Jewish friends who helped his family during their last bitter months in Germany, and the family's mounting panic as they witnessed the indifference of other countries to their plight and that of others like themselves. Gay's account - marked by candor, modesty, and insight - adds an important and curiously neglected perspective to the history of German Jewry.(Following graduation at Denver University, in 1946, the author chose an academic career - latterly becoming Sterling Professor of History Emeritus at Yale University. Peter Gay, as a regarded historian, used psycho-analysis to explore the understanding of past events) A very thought-provoking book, highly recommended by this bookseller.

Gay, Ruth:  
Safe Among the Germans : Liberated Jews after World War II

Publisher: New Haven, Yale University Press, 2002 (1st Edition).
xiv + 347pp with b/w illus. "This engrossing book tells the little-known story of why a quarter-million Jews, survivors of death camps and forced labour, sought refuge in Germany after World War II. Those who had ventured to return to Poland after liberation soon found that their homeland had become a new killing ground where some 1,500 Jews were murdered in pogroms between 1945 and 1947. Facing death at home, and with Palestine and the rest of the world largely closed to them, they looked for a place to be safe and found it in the shelter of the Allied Occupation Forces in Germany. Bottled up for the next three years in displaced persons camps, they created the most poignant - and the last - episode of Yiddish speaking culture : a final incandescent moment that played itself out on German soil. When the camps emptied in 1948 after the establishment of Israel and with special legislation in the United States, the Jews dispersed. But the loss of their centre meant the end of a thousand years of Eastern European Jewish culture. By 1950 a little community of 20,000 Jews remained in Germany : 8,000 native German Jews and 12,000 from Eastern Europe. Ruth Gay's enthralling account tells of their contrasting lives in the postwar Germanies. After the fall of Communism, the Jewish community was suddenly overwhelmed by tens of thousands of former Soviet Jews. Now there are some 100,000 Jews in Germany. The old somewhat nostalgic life of the postwar decades is being swept aside by radical forces from Lubavitcher at one end to Reform and feminism at the other. What started in 1945 as a "remnant" community has become a dynamic new centre of Jewish life." Ruth Gay (1923-2006) wrote extensively on Jewish history ; she was the wife of Peter Gay, the Yale University historian. Fine (new) cond : fine (new) cond d/w. 8 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches

Langmuir, Gavin I.  
History, Religion, and Antisemitism.

Publisher: Los Angeles, Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies / Calif. UP [1990].
ix, 380 p., index. “Gavin I. Langmuir's work on the formation and nature of antisemitism has earned him an international reputation. In History, Religion, and Antisemitism he bravely confronts the problems that arise when historians have to describe and explain religious phenomena, as any historian of antisemitism must. What, exactly, does the historian mean by 'religion' or 'religious'? How, and to what extent, can the historian be objective? Is it possible to discuss Christian attitudes toward Jews, for example, without adopting the language, and with it the historical explanations, of those whose attitudes one is discussing? Langmuir's original and stimulating responses to these questions reflect his inquiry into the approaches of other disciplines. …After a critical examination of the major approaches of anthropology, sociology, and psychology, Langmuir turns to recent research on the functioning of the mind and the nature of thought, and applies his findings to the study of religion. …' Dj; fine. Stock#21043.

Weiss, Ann : Young, James E. (introduction) : Wieseltier, Leon (foreword):  
The Last Album : Eyes from the Ashes of Auschwitz-Birkenau

Publisher: New York, W. W. Norton & Co Ltd., 2001. (1st edition).
224pp inc index plus over 400 b/w archive photo illus."These photographs were not supposed to be seen. The Nazi order to destroy every personal photograph brought to every concentration camp was clear. Not only were the victims to be destroyed, but their memories were to be obliterated as well. Despite this, the cherished pre-war photographs of one transport to Aushwitz-Birkenau in 1943 escaped destruction. In October of 1986, more than four decades later, Ann Weiss entered a locked room at Auschwitz and came across an archive of over 2,400 photographs brought to the death camp by Jewish deportees from across Europe. The photos, both candid snapshots and studied portraits, had been confiscated, but instead of being destroyed they were hidden at great risk and saved. In many cases these pictures are the only remnants left of entire families.'The Last Album' is a collection of over 400 of these remarkable photographs. It traces the story of how they arrived at Auschwitz-Birkenau and how the author came to see them through what was essentially a fortuitous accident. In the years that followed, Weiss identified as many people and places in the photos as possible, traveling around the world to track down remaining family members and friends, and listening to stories of the inmates' lives before they were removed to the camp. Many of these accounts are transcribed here. When people think of the Holocaust, often the first thing thast comes to mind is the sadly familiar, horrific image of emaciated bodies and starving survivors. Although the photographs in this book were found at the death camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau, they are bursting with life. We see babies; parents with their children; groups of teenagers; people at work, at school, at home, on vacation -- normal people leading normal lives.The photographs and reminiscences gathered here offer a rare and intensely personal view of who these individuals were and, most importantly, how they chose to remember themselves. Ann Weiss is the daughter of two survivors from Poland. She has worked as a researcher, writer, documentary filmaker and educator." Fine cond : fine cond d/w. 10 x 8 1/2 inches
