Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book does a great job offering a personal perspective on life in the orphanage based on a number of interviews and the author's skill in painting the picture. But the best part is the historical/ sociological analysis that describes the large influx of E European immigrants into Cleveland and how the resident German Reform Jews responded to this. The policies of the Jewish Orphan Asylum capture their response to their newly arrived brethren which was to whitewash their faith, deny their uniqueness and turn them into some sort of ideal American blue collar worker. This book captures all of this tension with so many details. It is a good read for a Cleveland history buff or anyone else.
