A Story of the Jews of St. John's, Newfoundland
Of the hundreds of thousands of Jewish immigrants who left Eastern
Europe between the 1880s and the early 1920s, a handful settled in
Newfoundland. These Yiddish-speaking, Eastern European Jews lived
alongside English Protestants and Irish Catholics. This book brings to
life the moving story of the Jews of St. John's through the voices and
words of the immigrants and their children.
"Kahn presents a charming and lively picture. For a vignette of the
Jewish experience of North America it is intense and
satisfying. Fully accessible as reading or a research tool for
all levels from undergraduate up . . . of interest to libraries with collections
in Jewish history or Canadiana." --Choice.
". . . invaluable . . . an important contribution
to the growing body of community oral history studies."--Oral History
