1 Altshuler, David; Editor. The Precious Legacy: Judaic Treasures from the Czechoslovak State Collections.
New York: Summit Books[1983]. 
Quarto, softbound, 288 pp. Photo. illus. Tiny rip to top of spine; otherwise, Fine. “The collection of the Czechoslovak State Jewish Museum in Prague is a unique resposity of historic artifacts, artistic rarities, and cultural memories. These objects document the vitality and significance of Czech Jewry, which has flourished for a millennium at the crossroads of East and West and is the oldest continuous Jewish community in Europe. One hundred fifty-three local Jewish communities in Bohemia and Moravia were devastated during the Holocaust, and thus the Prague Museum bears eloquent testimony to a world virtually snuffed out just one generation ago. This book brings to American audiences their first glimpse of this extraordinary collection of Judaica in conjuction with an exhibition that is touring our nation's major museums under the auspices of the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service."

In this significant volume, Dr. Bertram Wallace Korn, the noted authority on the ante-bellum period of American Jewish history, makes a penetrating study of a colorful and fascinating era...This study is the culmination of many years of painstaking research into primary sources scattered throughout European and American archives and libraries. It encompasses national and local history, questions of ethnic and religious identity, and an assortment of biographical material -- revealing the multitude of infludences to which early New Orleans Jews were subjected. The author has uncovered a vast amount of material dealing with early settlers of Dutch, Germanic, Sephardic and AMerican origins, and traces the progress of integration and assimilation in the lives of a large number of the original Jews in the area....”

5 Levine, Naomi and Martin Hochbaum. Poor Jews: An American Awakening.
New Brunswick, New Jersey: Transaction Books, (1974). 
Octavo, blue cloth (hardcover), silver letters, 206 pp. Ex-libris, with usual stamps (Temple B'Nai Israel Library); otherwise, a very attractive copy with few signs of wear; in a Very Good dust jacket with edgewear. From dust jacket: Citing national data and descriptions of the life styles of the Jewish poor, the authors reveal unique social characteristics of the Jewish poor -- including the surprising statistic that over two-thirds of this group are past the age of sixty, thus experiencing the compounded disadvantage of being poor, elderly and deserted by the younger, mobile Jewish community. Reasons for the invisibility of Jewish poverty are discussed: the fact that the census fails to list Jews as a separate catagory; the use of average income statistics that hide the existence of Jews on the lower end of the economic scale; the common belief that the Jewish community takes care of its own; the traditional Jewish pride. Poor Jews critically examines how the larger Jewish community has responded to poverty within its own ethnic group, along with Jewish attitudes toward the welfare state and charity in general...

7 Perl, William R. The Holocaust Conspiracy: An International Policy of Genocide. Foreword by Senator Claiborne Pell, Chairman of the U. S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.
New York: Shapolsky Publishers, (1989). First Edition. 
Octavo, black boards (hardcover), 261 pp. Near-Fine, with light foxing to page edges; in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. From dust jacket: By combining existing research with previously unknown findings, Dr. Perl draws the inescapable conclusion that it was not apathetic inaction of the world's powers which made the Holocaust and the Final Solution so tragically effective. The author uses extensive documentation to convincingly prove it was deliberate action on the part of many nations that kept millions of those destined for murder, prisoners in a hostile Europe. These deliberate actions are conclusively shown to result from conspiracies within individual governments as well as between governments.
