Only available online, The Gathering Storm: Jewish Life in Germany and Eastern Europe in the 1930s features items produced by or pertaining to European Jewry before the advent of the Second World War. While the subject of Jewish experience during the war has been widely explored, life for Jewish people in the period immediately before the war is less well known and demand for relevant resources is increasing. Showcased here are rare German and Yiddish newspapers and periodicals, as well as ephemeral publications such as calendars, yearbooks and other communally inspired commemorative works. The selected materials form part of a much larger hidden collection of un-cataloged works held in the Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica. The Gathering Storm also serves as a prelude to the upcoming exhibition Testimony featuring primary sources relating to the Holocaust.
