Jewish Manchester: An Illustrated History
"Jewish Manchester: An Illustrated History" narrates and interprets the development of the Jewish community from its foundation in the 1780s to the present day.
This will embrace the earliest Jewish settlers (all of them ex-pedlars), immigration from Germany in the early 19th century, from Eastern Europe after 1840, and from Nazi Europe in the 1930s.
The book will seek to emphasise the links between demographic and social change in the evolution of communal intervention in what remains the largest Jewish community in provincial Britain.
The book will be essential reading for everyone who is interested in the Jewish community and in the cultural diversity of Manchester and Britain.
