Jewish Studies in the Secondary School: Materials and Sources, 1881-1917: The Great Migration.
During the period covered by this annotated bibliography the Jewish population in the United States increased 10-fold to two and one half million. Approximately 90% of the immigrants came from Eastern Europe, with a large proportion of them settling in New York City's Lower East Side, or Great Ghetto. The print sources cited represent a variety of disciplines and forms of discourse: history, sociology, short stories, novels, essays, letters, reportage, etc. All items are in the New York City Public Library, Main Branch; many are available on inter-library loan and commercially. Suggestions for reproducing works with expired copyright are included. The publications were written both recently and during the 37 year period covered, both by Jewish and non-Jewish authors. Topics include Jewish life in the shtetl, or Eastern European village, and America, especially New York City. All works are in English, some being translations from the original Yiddish. (Author/DJB)
