The Ghetto traces back to the medieval era the Jewish immigrant colonies that have virtually disappeared from our modern cities--to be replaced by other ghettoes. Analytical as well as historical, Wirth's book lays bare the rich inner life hidden behind the drab exterior of the ghetto. The book describes the significant physical, social, and psychic influences of ghetto life upon the Jews. Wirth demonstrates that the economic life of the modern Jew still reflects the impress of the social isolation of ghetto life; at first self-imposed, later formalized, and finally imposed by others through a variety of extralegal mechanisms.

“Dreamers of the Ghetto”, the 1898 novel by British author Israel Zangwill, is a series of fictionalised biographies of notable Jewish thinkers including Spinoza and Heine. In “Dreamers of the Ghetto”, Zangwill explores the struggles of Jews trying to survive in the ignorant world of European Christian anti-Semitism at the turn of the century. Zangwill (1864–1926) was a leading figure in cultural Zionism during the 19th century, as well as close friend of father of modern political Zionism, Theodor Herzl. In later life, he renounced the seeking of a Jewish homeland in Palestine. A notable portion of Zangwill's work concentrated on ghetto life and earned him the nickname "the Dickens of the Ghetto". Other notable works by this author include: “The Master” (1907), “Ghetto Tragedies” (1899), and “Chosen Peoples” (1910). This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with an introductory chapter from “English Humourists of To-Day” by J. A. Hammerton.

“One should read it in order not to forget.”—Eleanor Roosevelt First published in English in 1959 and long unavailable, Rachmil Bryks’s vivid stories portray Jewish life in the Lodz ghetto and at Auschwitz. In a spare and tragicomic style, they illuminate the small and large absurdities that arise at the limits of human endurance—from the cooking of “roast meat” made of cabbage leaves to the predicament of Jews forced to cooperate in the hierarchy of their own annihilation. Deceptively simple and often humorous, these stories nevertheless mirror Bryks’s nuanced view of major moral dilemmas of the period: action vs. inaction, preserving dignity vs. survival.—Print Ed.

The Ghetto A Very Short Introduction

For three hundred years the ghetto defined Jewish culture in the late medieval and early modern period in Western Europe. In the nineteenth-century it was a free-floating concept which travelled to Eastern Europe and the United States. Eastern European "ghettos", which enabled genocide, were crudely rehabilitated by the Nazis during World War Two as if they were part of a benign medieval tradition. In the United States, the word ghetto was routinely applied to endemic black ghettoization which has lasted from 1920 until the present. Outside of America "the ghetto" has been universalized as the incarnation of class difference, or colonialism, or apartheid, and has been applied to segregated cities and countries throughout the world. In this Very Short Introduction Bryan Cheyette unpicks the extraordinarily complex layers of contrasting meanings that have accrued over five hundred years to ghettos, considering their different settings across the globe. He considers core questions of why and when urban, racial, and colonial ghettos have appeared, and who they contain. Exploring their various identities, he shows how different ghettos interrelate, or are contrasted, across time and space, or even in the same place. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

First published in 1902, and illustrated by Jacob Epstein, this evocation of the spiritual and cultural life of Yiddish New York remains fresh and relevant, and an invaluable commentary on one aspect of the formation of modern America. To an extent unequaled by any outsider before him, Hutchins Hapgood, a descendant of generations of New England Yankees, succeeded in penetrating the inner life of an American immigrant community. Hapgood did not set out to reform and cleanse the ghetto. His aim was to understand and interpret it, to find and know its poets, scholars, dramatists, actors, and artists, as well as its merchants and businessmen. He presents real people, individually identified and described, working out their destiny as part of a vital Jewish world. The sensibility and intentions of this book, as the editor points out, "anticipated a period of unexampled American artistic and intellectual gusto and creativity." Moses Rischin's discerning and affectionate introduction places Hapgood's neglected classic squarely in the mainstream of American cultural development.

Born In The Ghetto

This book is for all lovers of autobiography, history, and those interested in personal accounts of World War II. It is a personal testimony and a family saga played out against a background of some of the most momentous historical events of the 20th century. A novelist inventing a heroine would have been unlikely to come up with a more dramatic and gripping plot than that of Ariela Abramovich Sef's life story. Ariela's life was shaped both by difficult circumstances and her triumphs in overcoming them. Ariela brings these events to life as she narrates her gripping stories of survival in the Ghetto, growing up in the Soviet Union during the Cold War and Thaw period, migrating to the West, and her adventures in Paris. With remarkable courage, she also coped with congenital heart disease, prevailing and living life to the full. Ariela shares with the readers not only her interesting life in Paris, Moscow, and London, but also her pain, loss, endurance, and nobility of spirit, gentle sense of humor, and episodes of happiness. Passing away before she could complete her memoir, the book ends with tributes to Ariela written by her many devoted friends. *** "A poignant tale of courage and humanity in the face of staggering repression by the Nazis and the Soviet Union. Many years have passed but this is an eternal story - every bit as relevant to the violent upheavals and suffering of today, as to the shocking events of 70 years ago." - Tim Sebastian, Broadcaster and Journalist *** "Rarely has a posthumously published autobiography been such an impressively crafted, compelling and informative read. Very highly recommended for community library 20th Century Biography collections..." - Midwest Book Review, Reviewer's Bookwatch, Julia's Bookshelf, March 2015 [Subject: Memoir]

My legacy is important to me. I want to leave a legacy that my children and grandchildren could be proud of. A legacy that would be a blueprint for future generations to tweak and make better. I write this book for future generations to learn, grow, and inspire to be a better you. This book is the story of my life and based on true events. It's about a young lady that struggled through her identity crisis and was raised in unstable environments and poverty. A story about a life of tragedy, trepidation, but triumph. I never accepted the ideology of a victim. Instead, I embraced strength, resilience, and a warrior's philosophy. I fit the perfect description of Tupac Shakur's meaning of the saying, "a rose that grew from the concrete." When the odds were stacked against me, I continued to grow mentally, physically, and spiritually. I believe that you are only a victim when you have no choice; otherwise, you are an enabler. I had no choice being born into poverty, but I had a choice on whether to rise above my circumstances. My desire was to break the mental and physical chains plagued in our communities and instill new ones for me and my children. My story goes out to all the people that suffered and survived, The Ghetto Blues. I hope to transform and inspire you to never give up on you.
