Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Books by Society for the History of CZ Jews #austria-czech


Several people have written to me privately with questions
about the books written many years ago by the Society for the
History of CZ Jews, so I am sending this to the entire group as
it might be of interest. The first volume was published in 1968.
The third in 1984. The last review was published in 1993.
There were six in all and I don't have copies of all of them.
Rabbi Patz and his assistant Lesly Cohen can be reached at their
synagogue in New Jersey. The phone number at one time was: 973 239-2333.
They may have some books left but these books are also often
available >from libraries. I am not sure about the Reviews which are
more like journals. Online book selling websites may have used
copies. On my website < >is one story >from
Volume 3 written by Joseph Pick, The Story of the CZ Srolls.
I was given permission to reproduce it on my web site. It will give
you an idea of what type of stories the books have in them. The articles
in the books were written after the war and many who wrote were survivors.
They covered a variety of subjects like holocaust, history, art,
music and the economy as they related to the CZ Jews. These
articles were written by some of the following: Hana Volavkova,
Guido Kisch, Hugo Stransky, Gertrude Hirschler, Avigdor Dagan,
Theodore Rabb, Oskar Rabinowicz, Kurt Wehle, Wilma Iggers, and
Erich Kulka to name a few. I am sure there are others on the SIG
who have these books or have read them.
