British Jewry and the Holocaust: With a New Introduction

Richard Bolchover

Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the major concerns of Anglo-Jewish life during the war. Throughout the period of the Second World War, the Anglo-Jewish community was mainly preoccupied with internal conflict, particularly over Zionism, and domestic problems, the most pressing of which was British anti-semitism. To ground the study within Anglo-Jewish perceptions of Nazi atrocities, the chapter sets them firmly within the context of British Jewish life at that time. This approach explains how and why the Anglo-Jewry responded as it did. To further understanding, the chapter focuses in particular on those connected with the conflict and the fear of anti-semitism in Britain.

Keywords:   communal priorities, internal conflict, Zionism, domestic anti-semitism, British anti-semitism, Nazi atrocities, British Jewish Life
