A Time to Gather: Archives and the Control of Jewish Culture


By Jason Lustig
University of Texas at Austin

Forthcoming in November 2021 from Oxford University Press, A Time to Gather is the first systematic history of twentieth-century Jewish archives. It argues that collecting and preserving archives was not only about the past, but also about the future. Jewish archival projects and initiatives in Germany, the United States, and Israel/Palestine show how the question of who could claim to “own” history was a contentious battleground, both before the Holocaust and especially in its aftermath in the context of the restitution of Nazi-looted archives.
