The Tradesmen and Farmers of Yiddishland
by Emmanuelle Pollack
Publisher's Description
This fascinating collection of photographs documents a relatively unknown episode of Jewish history in Eastern Europe. The 1920s and '30s saw the creation and development of 'Jewish agricultural colonies' in the Soviet Union, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland and Romania. The aim was to 'normalize' Jews by teaching them 'productive' professional skills. These recently discovered photographs offer a unique and moving insight into the Jewish experience in central and Eastern Europe before the Second World War.
