South African Jews in World War II

FELDMAN, LEIBL
Oudtshoorn: Jerusalem of Africa
(Johannesburg: The Friends of the Library, University of the Witwatersrand, 1989) 1868141292. . Number 79 of an edition limited to 250 copies. Edited, with an Introductory Essay, by Joseph Sherman. Translated [from the Yiddish] by Lilian Dubb and Sheila Barkusky. Historical Notes and Commentary by John Simon. 8vo; original dark green rexine, lettered in gilt on upper cover; pp. xviii + 206, incl. index; ribbon marker; historical illustrations; maps. Joints ever so slightly rubbed; trace of ripple to top and bottom edges of some leaves. Very good condition. 'OUDTSHOORN: JERUSALEM OF AFRICA is a very significant contribution to South African Judaica, from both an historical and a sociological point of view. It is, too, an important, if unusual, addition to South African literature and culture. Ably translated from the original Yiddish, the long essay - for that is what it is in essence - which gives the book its title describes a unique immigrant community which flourished in the Little Karoo as long as the ostrich feather industry, from which it derived its existence, prospered. The "Jerusalem of Africa", as Oudtshoorn was known, had a proportionately higher concentration of Jews than any other centre in South Africa. As Leibl Feldman informs us, the vast majority of Jews in Oudtshoorn came from two Jewish communities in Lithuania, Kelm and Shavel... Feldman's description of this unusual community, which was a unique phenomenon in South African life, and possibly elsewhere in the Diaspora, is of absorbing interest.' - from the Foreword by Frank R. Bradlow.

HOROWITZ, DAVID, AND RITA HINDEN
Economic Survey of Palestine. With Special Reference to the Years 1936 and 1937
(Tel-Aviv: Economic Research Institute of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, 1938). . 248 x 172 mm; printed wrappers; pp. 214; graphs and tables in text. Wraps creased and somewhat frayed, with previous owner's name in small hand on upper wrap; moderate foxing throughout. Fair to good condition. "In surveying the economic situation in Palestine, the political background, both at home and abroad, must always be kept in mind. Political events exert a much more decisive influence on Palestine's economic life than is usual in other countries, owing to the special role which immigration and capital import play in Palestine's development. There are two sets of forces which compose this political background - the forces which repel Jewish population and capital away from their countries of origin, and cause them to turn to Palestine for refuge; and the forces which determine Palestine's attraction as a refuge for Jewish population and capital. These forces of repulsion and attraction are often sufficiently powerful to overshadow the effect of internal economic conditions.".

KAPLAN, MENDEL, AND MARIAN ROBERTSON (EDITORS)
Founders and Followers - Johannesburg Jewry 1887-1915
(Cape Town: Vlaeberg, 1991) 0947461094. . 4to; original brown boards, lettered in gilt and white to spine and upper cover; laminated pictorial dustwrapper, housed in removable protector; endpaper map and plans; pp. 300, incl. index. Very slightly shelf-rubbed; a little spotting to top edge; earlier owner's bookplate to front free endpaper verso. Very good condition. "Johannesburg Jewry is unique among Jewish communities throughout the world because its people joined with others to become the founders of a city. Numbering ten per cent of the white population from mining camp days in 1886 onwards, Jews made a significant contribution to the growth of Johannesburg. In Founders and Followers - Johannesburg Jewry 1887-1915, largely through biographies of personalities, various writers tell the story of the pioneers in the period from the founding of the first congregation in 1887 to 1915, when the two largest congregations amalgamated. From mining magnates to merchants, from politicians to prostitutes, Jews were to be found in every walk of life. Deeply researched, including sources not used before, the book is annotated with notes and is profusely illustrated.".
