World of Our Fathers: The Journey of the East European Jews to America and… (1976)
by Irving Howe
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0151463530, Hardcover)It was a great adventure--the emigration in the 1880s of two million Jews from East Europe to the United States. Many settled in New York, where they attempted to maintain their own Yiddish culture even while making their way into American society. Howe tells the story of these people--from sweatshop to Hollywood studio, from yeshiva to university, every aspect of Jewish life is vividly depicted.
