CHOICE Review

Drawing on his facility in Hebrew, Yiddish, and English, emeritus Tel Aviv University historian Gorni carefully analyzes how the Jewish press in four countries responded to the unfolding of the Holocaust. The press underscored the political weakness of Jews worldwide, often pointing to the lack of a Jewish nation. No matter their ideological makeup, Jewish journalists and other writers expressed anguish, cried out for humanitarian assistance, and insisted on political intervention by the Allies and Jewish organizations. The response of the press, which began on a somewhat hopeful, disbelieving note, shifted to a more pained and insistent quality as revelations of the full extent of the Holocaust emerged. The Jewish press acknowledged its own failures to appreciate the enormity of what was transpiring, but did faithfully record events throughout the duration of the Shoah. It reported mass shooting, the driving of Jews into ghettos, the ensuing starvation of those terrible enclaves, high death rates, massacres in German-occupied lands, and the Nazi determination to rid Europe of Jews altogether. Through it all, the Jewish press remained cautiously optimistic about the possibility of saving the remaining European Jews and of building a Jewish community in Palestine following the war. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries. R. C. Cottrell California State University, Chico
