Jewish Lives: Britain 1750-1950

Jewish Lives: Britain 1750–1950 (How Your Ancestors Lived) Kindle Edition
by Melody Amsel Arieli (Author)

Jewish Lives recounts the life-stories of ten individual Jews who immigrated to Britain between 1750 and 1950, based on actual genealogical research. Their life-stories, enriched by a variety of sources, reflect the experiences of all Jewish immigrants as they settled in their adopted land. Melody Amsel-Arieli does not just piece together the detail of their lives – their work, pastimes, families, daily chores, food and celebrations. Drawing on social, economic and historical records, she also explores their background, places of origin, motives for immigration, arrival in the UK and experiences as they adjusted to their new surroundings – placing them in the wider historical context of their adopted community and society. This selection of revealing life-stores will prove fascinating for family historians and researchers, Jewish and non-Jewish alike, by offering parallels with their own lives and the lives of their ancestors.

Jewish Lives: Britain 1750-1950 will inspire readers to pursue their own quest for information and understanding of their past.
