About this Item

Sm. quarto. 11,9-1pp. (Total of 20 pages). Original wraps. English and Hebrew title-page. "The first number of "New Life" will bring out more to the fore the work and objects of ICOS. This organisation is one of a body of similar organisations carrying on the same work in 22 countries. This work is to propagate in this country the complete reconstruction of the Jewish life in the U.S.S.R. What is actually the position of the Jewish masses in the U.S.S.R.? While in Germany, Poland and Ro(u)mania new waves of pogroms and persecution indicate the terrible plight of millions of Jews in Europe, we have in contrast to this in one part of the world which covers one-sixth of the world's surface, a completely different picture. There, in the Soviet Union, where a new social order is being built the Jews have achieved an economic and political freedom which the Jews in the most democratic capitalist country have never known. Within 10 years the whole mode of Jewish life in the U.S.S.R. has been completely reconstructed. From an isolated and persecuted caste of economic parasites they have been transformed into healthy productive workers on an equal footing with all other citizens in the Soviet Union. The five flourishing Jewish National Regions and the Jewish Autonomous Territory of Biro Bidjan show what the erstwhile "Luft Mensch" has accomplished under a government which stands for the complete freedom and self-determination of all its nationalities. The new Jewish life in the U.S.S.R. stands out as a beacon for those struggling and persecuted Jews in Fascist and semi-Fascist countries. This is the task which ICOS has set itself and which "New Life" will help considerably in carrying out - of showing more and more people the way the Jewish problem has been solved in the U.S.S.R. In a period like the present, when some of the bloodiest pages in Jewish history are being written, an organisation like ICOS, carrying on such important work, should have the support of every progressive Jew in this country." Principal contents include: Editorial. Plans for Jewish Autonomous Region for 1936 by I. Orlik. 18 Years of Jewish Life in the U.S.S.R. From the Jewish regions in the U.S.S.R. Letter from Biro Bidjan. A few facts about Biro Bidjan. Greetings: A. J. Cummings, Fenner, Brockway, and others. The Road Ahead by A. R. Beiter. News in Brief, Book Reviews, etc. Text in Hebrew and English. Front and rear wrapper detached but present. Heavily chipped at edges. Front wrapper brittle with three-inch closed tear. Wraps in poor, interior in very good condition. Scarce edition of the very first issue of "New Life," published by the Organisation (Association) for Jewish Colonisation in the U.S.S.R.). Fascinating pro-Soviet propaganda publication. Bookseller Inventory # 26254
