Out of the Ashes is a unique account of the contribution of American Jews to the continued survival of the remnant of European Jewry - the She'erit Hapletah - in the aftermath of the Nazi Holocaust. As the Second World War drew to a close and the full extent of the Holocaust was revealed, the immediate American Jewish reaction of shocked silence and disbelief was soon transformed into pragmatic action: Jewish agencies throughout the US were mobilized to help the survivors and their communities to begin to rebuild shattered lives. Paramount among these organizations was the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), which since its formation in 1914 had established itself as the foremost American Jewish agency for helping fellow Jews overseas. The JDC was joined by other organizations, including the well-established HIAS (Hebrew Sheltering and Immigrant Aid Society) and ORT (Organization for Rehabilitation and Training). Based on a variety of sources, including the JDC archives and oral interviews, the book examines the politics and mechanics of the American Jewish intervention and assesses its extent and effect on the fate of European Jewry both in Europe and elsewhere in the years immediately after 1945.

Over the last decade, the issue of reparation for victims of gross and systematic human rights violations has given rise to intense debates at the national and the international level. Discussions particularly arise in post-conflict situations characterised by serious violations of human rights, such as genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and other forms of injustice of the past. Crucial questions include: what harm inflicted to victims warrants reparation? when and how to repair the harm? who is eligible for reparation and who has the duty to repair? These and other questions raise many challenging issues for theory and practice. This volume contains the contributions presented at an international conference in Brussels, in February 2005, on the right to reparation for victims of serious human rights violations. It also includes the final report of a research project undertaken jointly at the Universities of Antwerp (UA) and Leuven (K.U.Leuven) between 2000 and 2004 on the right to reparation in international law for victims of gross and systematic human rights violations, both from a legal and a socio-political perspective. The present volume is aimed at academics, policy-makers, national and international courts and tribunals, the legal professions, and civil society at large.

You are holding in your hand one of the most remarkable and unforgettable personal narratives to emerge from the Hitler holocaust in Europe. While there have been literally thousands of books written about and by the life of the Jews during the years when six million Jews were wiped out in concentration and extermination camps, few volumes are as authentic and as stark as Out of the Ashes; Rabbi Thorne not only possesses total recall; he owns a literary style which brings to life a period which shall forever be remembered as one of the most dramatic eras in human existence. But this is more than a personal document. It represents the agony of an entire people and even the reader who thinks he knows what happened under Hitler will gasp in amazement at this story of a man who, deeply religious and faithful to the precepts of Orthodox Judaism, manages to retell the tale of a handful of years which saw men, women and children subjected to atrocities beyond human imagination. You will read in this book of moments of heroism, self-sacrifice and destruction which you will always remember. You will be convinced that this is exactly how it was and you will marvel at how the author managed to survive scores of “Actions” and pogroms. You will wonder how he survived. But at the same time, you will understand how, in surviving, Rabbi Thorne held fast to his belief in the ultimate triumph of the Jewish people. Although Out of the Ashes is full of sadness, it is also replete with stories of the victory of the human spirit. It is a valuable historical document; it is, for sheer story-telling, unsurpassed by any other writer who lived through these years. It is the story of one man, of an entire people and of a history which all mankind would do well to ponder. Out of the Ashes is a major book, a great contribution to the literature of our time.— Print Ed.

The long-term decline of the British coal industry has had serious and lasting implications for miners, their families and communities. Out of the Ashes? Presents an authoritative review of the history and current state of this process. Drawing on their own research in Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire mining communities, the authors chart the impact of pit closures, of their threat, on community life. The viability and working practices of the restructured industry are examined alongside case studies of successful and failed worker take-overs. The management of decline and attempts to stimulate the local economies affected are compared with very different strategies pursued in Germany, Belgium and Spain. The book concludes with an examination of the likely future of what remains of the industry and the prospects of the communities it once supported. Written in an accessible style, Out of the Ashes? Will engage all who have a professional or personal interest in the decline of the British coal mining industry, as well as academic and students of regional studies, sociology, psychology and the social sciences in general.
