THE FIRST WORLD WAR

This issue we take a look at World War I through the lens of the Jewish experience. Bernard Wasserstein assesses the impact of the war on Europe's Jews. Monica Bohm-Duchen considers why some of the most iconic works of WWI (including Mark Gertler's Merry-Go-Round and Jacob Epstein's Rock Drill) were produced by Britain's Jewish artists. And we reveal extracts from Derek Penslar's book, Jews and the Military, about what it meant for Jews from enemy countries to be fighting each other. Plus, a raft of book reviews (including a biography of Philip Roth), Passover recipes, and much more.
