From the Ends of the Earth
The Jews in the 20th CenturyPaperback
The Jewish story is an extraordinary one: of a 'chosen race' but a 'difficult people', living in all countries but until recently without one to call its own. Over the last one hundred years and across the world, Jews have been subjects and citizens, refugees and victims, as well as making enormous contributions to business, medicine, science, culture and political thought. The achievements of individual Jews in the 20th century are well known - Einstein and Kafka alone epitomize science and literature - and as a race they suffered that period's greatest tragedy. This powerful photographic history brings the turbulence and dynamism of the century vividly to life.
