The Jewish Journey : A Passage through European History, Hardback Book

The Jewish Journey : A Passage through European History Hardback


The history of European Jewry is a vast and complex subject.

In this book, Edward Gelles traces Jewish history in Europe and the Near East including population movement, settlement, integration, advancement in aspects of European culture and learning, relations with European states and dynasties, Christians and Ottomans, persecution, the world wars, anti-Semitism, indeed the story of European Jewry from early times to the present.

Edward Gelles and his family, both immediate and in their wider circle have huge and distinguished family connections that provide historical context.

In combining biography, traditional genealogy and a contribution from the rapidly developing field of genetic genealogy this book weaves emerging patterns into the grand tapestry of European history.
