Re-inventing the Jewish Past: European Jewish Intellectuals and the Zionist Return to History (Studies in Jewish History) by David N. Myers



David Myers' book explores a fascinating and untold chapter in modern Jewish intellectual history: the role of the first generation of Jewish scholars at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in establishing Jewish studies within the framework of a Jewish national university. Committed to rewriting Jewish history according to Zionist standards. In his facility with the world of the Yishuv-the pre-state Jewish settlement in Palestine-as well as European Jewry in both primary and secondary sources, Myers is virtually in a class of his own. This study is a singular and stunning contribution to Jewish and general scholarship. -The Historian a very good book, and it fits squarely into the concerns of those historians who are increasingly attracted to the broader question of the contrast between critical history and collective popular memory. -Central European History, Vo. 0, N., 1997.

European Jewish Intellectuals and the Zionist Return to History David . yers. Between D I g n I t y and despair. Jewish Life in Nazi Germany Marion A. Kaplan. I wrote a dissertation on the Jewish feminist movement in Germany, as well as a later book on Jewish middle-class life in Imperial Germany. Until this project, I avoided the genocide of the Jews. Writing this book brought me to the greatest tragedy of modern Jewish history and one of the central defining milestones of the twentieth century. Moreover, it brought me face-to-face with the very personal nature of this catastrophe. I cried as I finished reading many memoirs.
