Tide and Wreck: History of the Jews of Vardar Macedonia
"This book, which is the result of more than 30 years of research, is a detailed history of Vardar Macedonian Jews until the Final Solution in Treblinka. Until now there has been a Hebrew edition published in 1986 and a Serbian one in 1990. This English version is an expanded one, much more comprehensive and enriched with material found in new documents and presented in a clear manner. Existing and available documents in sources in many languages have been consulted, as can be seen in Bibliography at the end of the book. This is the first time there is an English-language version of the story of the Macedonian Jews. This book will be of interest not only to the descendants of Macedonian Jews who live in the United States and in other English-speaking countries who are looking for information on their ancestry, but will also be welcomed by a wider audience. Tide and Wreck is dedicated to the Jews of ex-Yugoslavia, especially to those who lived in Macedonia for centuries until their tragic end in the Holocaust. The wounds have never healed, but this book is helping to repay at least some of the debt to their memory."--Publisher description.
