Share this event:

On the centennial of the armistice ending The Great War, this program explores key findings of the new book, World War I and the Jews: Conflict and Transformation in Europe, the Middle East, and America (Berghahn), the first to deal with the war's monumental impact on world Jewry. The First World War utterly transformed the lives of Jews, unleashing massive suffering in many locales but also affording Jews a unique opportunity to display their patriotism and military prowess. Most profoundly, the war destroyed much of the political framework in which the majority of world Jewry had long existed, replacing it with a new order of nation-states that made their lives more uncertain and precarious.

This program features discussion between scholars of the war  the editors Marsha L. Rozenblit (University of Maryland) and Jonathan Karp (Binghamton University, SUNY) alongside contributors and historians Allan Arkush (Binghamton University, SUNY), Rebecca Kobrin (Columbia University), Michal Ben-Yaakov (Efrata School of Education, Jerusalem), Gennady Estraikh (NYU),  Rebekah Klein-Pejová (Purdue University); and Volker Berghahn (Columbia University)  about the conflicts impact on Jewish communities in Europe, the Middle East and North America. A reception sponsored by Berghahn Books will follow, including sales of the new paperback edition.
