Around 30 Jewish chaplains served with honour and distinction in the German army during the First World War, providing spiritual care for about 100,000 Jewish, as well as non-Jewish, soldiers, and also Jewish refugees made homeless by the TsaristMoreAround 30 Jewish chaplains served with honour and distinction in the German army during the First World War, providing spiritual care for about 100,000 Jewish, as well as non-Jewish, soldiers, and also Jewish refugees made homeless by the Tsarist army. This book details the writings of these Jewish chaplains, and includes original translations of memoirs and diaries, annotated with historical, religious and literary notes. In spite of their loyal service, between 1918 and 1941 all of these rabbis died or were driven out of Germany, and at least four were murdered during the Holocaust.
