Jewish Lives in New Zealand - A History
Leonard Bell & Diana Morrow
The census tells us that 8000 New Zealanders
actively identify as Jewish and it is estimated that
the broader population is probably around
25,000. There has never been an authoritative
history of this country’s Jewish population and
yet people of Jewish descent (both secular and
religious) have played vital roles in all aspects of
our society throughout its history.
Auckland alone has had five Jewish mayors.
Jews have been prominent in New Zealand’s
business, cultural, intellectual, political,
medical, intellectual life and more since the
1840s, and successive waves of immigration
have added to the tapestry of New Zealand Jewry.
This significant book covers key sectors of
activity with specialist writers assigned to each.
Richly illustrated, it slots another important
piece into the jigsaw of our history.

Jewish London : An Illustrated History
Dr Gerry Black
2003
“Jewish history in London properly begins
with the arrival of a small group of Jews
with William the Conqueror. Despite their
expulsion in 1290, the influence of Jews on
the life of the capital has grown, especially
after the large scale immigrations of the
19th and 20th
centuries. The Jews have had
an extraordinary impact on the life of the
city, and this book shows how it
happened.” - from the flyleaf.

Gerry Black

How to Trace Your Jewish
Genealogy and Personal
History
By Arthur Kurzweil
Birmingham Jewry
1749 – 1915
By
Zoe Josephs
Avotaynu, the International
Review of Jewish Genealogy
We have 37 volumes of this
journal from 1980s and 1990s
“Written with clarity and authority by an
expert in the field, this offers an in depth
study of all facets of this rich tradition.
Combining breadth with a readable yet
concise style, the author has produced a
comprehensive volume that is balanced
and accessible. Featuring a complete
historical survey of Judaism, and covering
figures from Cain to Chagall, topics from
fasting to euthanasia, and locations from
the Garden of Eden to the Wailing Wall, it
is an invaluable addition to the library of
anyone interested in the Jewish faith past
and present”
From the back cover – abridged.
The Jews of Johannesburg
1886 – 1901
Morris Abrahams
(edited by Naomi Musiker)
“The Jewish community of Johannesburg has changed a great deal during the
period 1886-1901. The majority of Jews arrived as peasants from the Pale of
Settlement in Eastern Europe, where they faced degrading and difficult
conditions. South Africa offered a safe haven free from religious persecution
and full of the promise of economic prosperity. The greater part of Jewish
immigrants settled in Johannesburg and created Jewish enclaves and districts
on the cityscape, adding another dimension to the urban fabric.”
East End Jewish Radicals
1875 – 1914
William J Fishman
“The author describes London’s East End at a time of mass immigration from
Eastern Europe to the shabby tenements of Stepney and Whitechapel.
This was the birthplace of the Jewish socialist and libertarian movement.
He brings alive a forgotten and fascination part of London history.”
From the back cover.
Includes appendices.
Survivors
Jewish Refugees in Birmingham
Zoe Josephs
Tells the stories, sometimes harrowing, of these refugees,
many of whom were at the time still children. It describes
problems they encountered in adapting to life in wartime
Britain. The hardships encountered by those who were
interned as aliens, and eventually the successful lives and
careers that many achieved.
British Jewry – Book of Honour - Parts 1 & 2
By Rev Michael Adler
Published in 1942 and aimed at the Home Guard, this booklet - generously
illustrated with photos of the unarmed combat tactics it describes - seeks
to impart simple but effective techniques for dealing with both an armed
and un-armed attacker. The techniques it describes range from escaping a
stranglehold; coping with an enemy who digs a pistol into your back; and a
guide to vulnerable parts of the body. Its advice ranges from the
straightforward: If you are handy with your fists nothing can beat a good,
solid punch on the jaw, to the deadly: A well-delivered rabbit punch just
under the ears will at least dislocate the neck, and very probably break it .
This is a timeless and still extremely useful guide for defending oneself
without weapons in dangerous times.
This book, and the accompanying one of illustrations was planned as a
'permanent record of the services of all the fifty thousand Jews who came
from all parts of the Empire, so that in times to come all may remember
and know how to hold them in honour and lasting thankfulness.'
They served in every part of the military, in hospitals, as chaplains and
anywhere else that men were needed.
Although there is no overall index, there are several different ones, of the
Roll of Honour, Awards, Nominal Rolls and a copy of the index to the
illustrations of Part Two, which is also held by the NZSG Library.
Part two of this tremendous work contains illustrations of many of the
officers and men of the British Empire who served in the Great War,
including the five who won the Victoria Cross. Photos of the many Jewish
war memorials are also here, along with a full index.
