These events and movements include: World War One, the Russian Revolution and the pogroms of the Russian Civil War; the very different paths of Soviet and Polish Jewries during the interwar years; the Jews of Palestine under the British Mandate; the rise and spread of Nazism; the Holocaust; the rise of the State of Israel and the new state’s political, social, and cultural history; Stalinist repression of Soviet Jewry; trends in the post-war American Jewish community; the Six Day War and its aftermath, the polarization of American Jewry in the latter decades of the twentieth century.
