Inhaltsangabe: In this important 1991 study of Soviet Jewry, Yaacov Ro'i examines the cultural, social, political and international context of the movement for emigration, from the establishment of the state of Israel to the outbreak of the Six Day War. A discussion of the lives of Soviet Jews, based upon oral testimony, shows how Jewish self-awareness arose as a product of the Holocaust, of the founding of the State of Israel, and of popular antisemitism and Soviet policy, and how local groups developed in clandestine conditions to sustain Jewish cultural interests. The author also analyses the campaign conducted in the West on behalf of Soviet Jewish rights as a whole and emigration in particular. By 1967 Soviet Jewish efforts to maintain even a minimal Jewish existence seemed doomed to constant frustration, and most nationalistically minded Jews accepted that the only way of fulfilling their aspirations was to emigrate to Israel.
"This study unquestionably fills some gaps in our knowledge concerning the growth of Zionism within the Soviet Union and the role of Israel in support of this process." David L. Williams, History
"Yaacov Ro'i's monograph signals an important beginning, sythesizing a wide variety of English, Russian and Hebrew sources to tell his complex story." Alexandra S. Korros, Russian Review
