Item description for A History of East European Jews by Heiko Haumann...

The origins and life of East European Jewry took on new historical and political importance after the Holocaust. Two thirds of European Jewry and about one third of the world's Jewish population were murdered by the Nazis. In Poland alone - 99 per cent of Polish Jews - three million in all were killed; Yiddish as a spoken language more or less disappeared. This volume presents a history of East European Jewry from its beginnings to the period after the Holocaust. It gives an overview of the demographic, political, socio-economic, religious and cultural conditions of Jewish communities in Poland, Russia, Bohemia and Moravia. The structure of the book is chronological: a 'history of events' description enriched with cultural elements.

Interesting themes include the story of early settlers, the 'Golden Age', the influence of the Kabbalah and Hasidism. Vivid portraits of Jewish family life and religious customs make the book enjoyable to read.

I read this book in german a few years back. The german publisher in paper back, "Heiko Haumann:Geschichte der Ostjuden", was Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag. It was a fascinating read. If you want to know about jews and the lives they led in europe during the last millenium, this is the book for you. I intend to read " A History of East European Jews" as a refresher.
