Avinoam Patt Finding Home and Homeland: Jewish Youth and Zionism in the Aftermath of the Holocaust
This inspiring history examines the role of young survivors of the Holocaust in the creation of the State of Israel. From kibbutzim organized in displaced persons camps, these dedicated, resourceful, and resilient young Jews acted with passion to establish the new Jewish state. Avi Patt's significant book provides a fresh perspective on an important chapter in Jewish history arguing that Zionism was highly successful in filling a positive function for young displaced persons in the aftermath of the Holocaust because it provided a secure environment for vocational training, education, rehabilitation, and a sense of family. A former Houstonian, Patt is the Philip D. Feltman Chair in Modern Jewish History at the University of Hartford.
