Immigrants from Poland who returned #general


Barbara Zilber
 

There is an incredible book written by Irving Howe called "World of our
Fathers". It describes the journey of the Eastern European immigrant Jews to
America and the life they found and made here; describing great hardships
and incredible strides. It is a really comprehensive history and as such
does touch upon many of the reasons why some of them returned to the old
country. As a great academic work it can occassionally be a little dry, but
if you have the interest and curiosity, it is a well of knowledge and a
treasure.
