En este ensayo, que se ha convertido en referencia obligada, Joseph Roth perfila el dibujo íntimo, no siempre exento de ironía, de los judíos del Este de Europa, un pueblo que a la sazón se convirtió, a través de sus dolorosas migraciones, en uno de los fermentos constitutivos de lo que hoy llamamos Occidente. Sobre este extraordinario libro, entre recuerdos de ciudades y ...more

O meu texto sobre "Judeus Errantes", de Joseph Roth, para P3/Público.
Editora: Sistema Solar.
Ne atdheun e tij, ai (hebreu lindor) nuk di asgje per padrejtesine sociale te perendimit, per mbizoterimin e paragijykimeve qe sundon ne hapat, sjelljet dhe horizontet e europianit perendimor; ai nuk di asgje per horizontin e ngushte te perendimit... Ai shikon me zili drejt perendimit, nje zili te cilin perendimi nuk e meriton aspak. Per ate perendimi do te thote liri, mundesi per te punuar, per te shfaqur talentet, drejtesi dhe sundim autonom i intelektit. Per ate Gjermania eshte nder te tjeras ...more
This is an account of the Jews in Europe (and briefly the US) in the period between the wars. Given the subject matter it is an understandably angry book, but over c140 pages it doesn’t let up and consequently starts to lose its impact.

Roth is always on the side of the downtrodden and oppressed and strongly champions the Jews of Eastern Europe. In particular he provides interesting anecdotes and insights about life in the Shtetl and a very human understanding of the sheer grind of having to get
Clarifica la diferencia de los Judios de europa oriental y los Judios occidentales.Trata de quienes son, como viven, como llevan a cabo sus practicas religiosas. Porque deciden migrar y hacia donde.Las diferencias de su adaptacion a los diferentes paises como alemania, Francia, Austria y los EEUU. Tambien trata de los Judios Sovieticos.
Este ensayo fue escrito a los fines de los veintes del siglo XX. Asi que al leerlo hay que tomar en cuenta su contexto cuando fue escrito. Desde la caida del Impe

A brilliant angry little book. A must for anyone interested in Jewish European history and thought, though no doubt very dated since written before the Holocaust. Still, filled with insights into the relationships that Europe, both East and West, had with it's Jewish populations, and the relationship Jews had with the European countries that they lived in. Which is much too simple an explanation, since Roth by no means typifies the Jewish population of the time, I think around 1927, but instead ...more

By the author of the Radetszky March. It was very interesting to read these essay about Jews in Eastern and Western Europe written in the 1920s with an updated forward for the 1937 edition.
It was very interesting to read this book, written about the Jewish population largely immigrating from the East to the West, written in the 1920's and early '30's. He touches on topics like the growth of Zionism or colonization of Palestine and Hungary and discusses the plight of the "Wandering Jew" in a variety of locations throughout Europe and in America. It was just a great personal yet impersonal overview of the trials and tribulations of the Jewish people, their endearing qualities, and t ...more

Sad, insightful, well worth the read.
This book goes well with "When Nietzsche Wept". I read this a few years ago, and it also gives a good idea of what late-19th-century/early-20th century life was like in Vienna. While "When Nietzsche Wept" is based on upper-middle-class life, "The Wandering Jews" includes good descriptions of what life was like for the poor and struggling.

Si se quiere comprender la Shoa, es un must. Si se quiere comprender de dónde venimos lo judíos laicos es un must. Si se quiere, si realmente se desea leer un buen ensayo, debes comprar este título. Lo acaban de reeditar en Acantilado.
