This chapter evaluates The Jews of Czechoslovakia Vol. III (1984), which was edited by Avigdor Dagan, Gertrude Hirschler, and Lewis Weiner. This is the final volume of a remarkable undertaking. The first two volumes, published in 1968 and 1971, dealt with pre-1939 developments and set out the complex nature of Jewish tradition and life under the Habsburgs and during the twenty years of the first Czechoslovak Republic. Czechoslovak Jewry was a very heterogeneous phenomenon, divided along linguistic, religious, cultural, and political lines. Some of these divisions, such as those between the so-called ‘assimilationists’ and Zionists, are frequently mentioned in the present volume, but the overriding topic here is the Holocaust in all its aspects — Nazi policy, Jewish reactions, and the attitudes of non-Jews. It is in fact the first comprehensive one-volume treatment of the Holocaust in Czechoslovakia in any language.

Keywords:   Jewish tradition, Jewish life, Habsburgs, Czechoslovak Republic, Czechoslovak Jewry, assimilationists, Zionists, Holocaust, Nazi policy, Czechoslovakia
