Yiddish column - new book about Lucy Dawidowicz

Itay Zutra edited 2Nancy Sinkoff’s “From Left to Right: Lucy S. Dawidowicz, the New York Intellectuals, and the Politics of Jewish History”, is the intellectual biography of one of the most interesting Jewish historians specializing in the Holocaust and Eastern Europe.

Born in the Bronx to Yiddish speaking left wing parents, Dawidowicz, due to the Holocaust, the Cold War, and Zionism, made the gradual switch from left to right. Her story is the story of American Jewish New Conservatism.
