This in-depth history of the Jewish faith explores how Jews have lived under Christianity and Islamic rule, survived centuries of anti-Semitism, life in the Diaspora, the Holocaust and the revival of Judaism today. In the 19th century, mass migration to America coincided with the rise of Zionism. Today, most Jews live in Israel and the USA, yet France and Britain maintain vibrant Jewish populations, and Germany, once the birthplace of Nazism, is Europe s fastest-growing community.With over 250 illustrations, this is a fascinating history of one of the world s most influential religions, forming a perfect study aid for anyone with an interest in the story of the Jews. A MODERN HISTORY OF THE JEWS FROM THE MIDDLE AGES TO THE PRESENT DAY Tells the story of Judaism from the medieval ghettos through the Enlightenment to the tragedy of the Holocaust and the birth of modern Israel, with over 250 illustrations Lawrence Joffe CLICK HERE TO READ THE WHOLE BOOK IN DIGITAL FORM
