By Sylvian Halff

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 1921

The primary goal of this article is to highlight the fidelity shown by the Jews of Alsace and Lorraine towards France during the forty-seven years (1871-1918) in which Alsace and Lorraine were controlled by Germany, and furthermore, to describe the community's happiness over the terms of the Armistice of World War I, which gave control of Alsace and Lorraine back to France. Moreover, the author also discusses many of the problems encountered by Jews in Alsace-Lorraine during German rule, and examples of condemnations against Jews by German authorities, among other topics covered.
