Internet Modern Jewish History Sourcebook
Central and Eastern Europe

Note: Because of the space memory shortage and lack of resources I launched this site with sources related to Romania. Further, depending on the institutional opportunities I will develop it as originally I wanted, i.e. for Central and Eastern Europe.
The Internet Modern Jewish History Sourcebook for Central and Eastern Europe is a series of primary historical sources. It is intended to serve as a comprehensive resource database for professors, graduate students, and researchers interested in modern history of Jews in these regions.
My goals are:
To make available on-line research primary material on modern history of Jews in Central and Eastern European. A special attention will be paid to the literature regarding Jewish Emancipation, anti-Semitism and anti-racist propaganda.
To add primary sources on the history of Jews in Central and Eastern Europe to a number of other online collections on legal and political documents on the history of Jews in Europe. As such, the database tries to overcome the relatively disproportionate coverage of the history of Jews in Western Europe, as compared to the scarcity of sources available on Jews in Central and Eastern Europe.

Thank you for your vote!
To encourage comparative studies on the modern social and political history of Jews in Central and Eastern Europe, and on the intellectual and political history of anti-Semitism in these regions.
This project was specially design for my home university (Central European University) where the variety of students from all over the Central and East European countries might be extremely beneficial for such an otherwise ambitious project. It is worth mentioning the inspiring model of The Internet Modern History Sourcebook edited by Paul Halsall with whom I emulated in designing this project.
