New Research, New Views

Edited by: Antony Polonsky

This volume focuses on Polish Jews in Germany, Zionism in Poland, and art and architecture.

It includes a map of synagogue buildings still standing in 1988 and an inventory showing their current use, and an illustrated article on recent Jewish monuments in Warsaw. Several of the remaining articles relate~to Polish or Yiddish literature.
