Synopsis

The Jewish Labor Bund was one of the major political forces in early twentieth-century Eastern Europe. But the decades after the Second World War were years of enormous difficulty for Bundists. Like millions of other European Jews, they faced the challenge of resurrecting their lives, so gravely disrupted by the Holocaust. Not only had the organization lost many members, but its adherents were also scattered across many continents. In this book, David Slucki charts the efforts of the surviving remnants of the movement to salvage something from the wreckage.Covering both the Bundists who remained in communist Eastern Europe and those who emigrated to the United States, France, Australia, and Israel, the book explores the common challenges they faced-building transnational networks of friends, family, and fellow Holocaust survivors, while rebuilding a once-local movement under a global umbrella. This is a story of resilience and passion-passion for an idea that only barely survived Auschwitz.

David Slucki is a Monash Early Career Development Fellow at the Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation and the School of Philosophical, Historical, and International Studies at Monash University in Australia. He has published articles in American and European Jewish studies journals, and he was previously a senior curator in Indigenous Cultures at Museum Victoria in Melbourne, Australia.
