  • Whitechapel Noise by Vivi Lachs

    Folks, I have just come across the book "Whitechapel Noise: Jewish Immigrant Life in Yiddish Song and Verse, London 1884-1914".
    It seems to be a overview of Jewish life in the East End.

    I've got the ebook, but haven't started it yet.
    It may be one to consider reviewing in Ripperologist.

    It's a bit expensive, but your local library would probably consider buying it.

    I attach a link to the book's Amazon page.

    That looks an interesting one Barn. But as you say, it’s not cheap. Have you been spending Christmas present book vouchers?
    Regards

      Yeah Herlock, my house is where books come to die.
      Still got lots of book tokens to spend...oh bliss!

      Re the "Whitechapel Noise" book; there is no mention in the index of anything relating to the Whitechapel murders.
      I think it's a book which will add some relevance to anyone trying to understand Jewish culture in the East End, but possibly a bit too "niche" for general readers.

        Pretty sure that Der Arbeter Fraint would be mentioned.

        IWMEC was an important club in many ways.

          Hi DJA, yes you'r right, Der Arbeter Fraint is listed.
          It is indexed as "Arbayter Fraynd, Der", I only had a quick run through the index and was looking for "Der Arbeter Fraint", not under "Arbayter Fraynd, Der".

          The IWMC is listed as the "Berner street Club" and is mentioned a few times in the body of the book.
          Nothing that strikes me as anything new (but I'm certainly not an expert on Jewish Whitchapel).
