Summary
"This book is a local study of a Jewish community in Poland before the Holocaust. It analyses the development of the Cracow Jewish press, schools and cultural organizations to show how Jews expressed their Jewish identities even as they were increasingly pressured to assimilate to Polish culture. The Jews of Cracow began to develop unique subcultures during the inter-war period, distinguishable from traditional Jewish culture as well as from Polish culture. Jewish newspapers, schools and cultural organizations promoted separate Jewish identity while advocating Jewish integration into the majority society, and the book shows how Jews in Poland could acculturate towards Polish culture without sacrificing a separate sense of communal identity."--BOOK JACKET
