Hi out there! I am looking for a book-if it exists. That is factual, and describes to me what daily life was like for a European Jewish woman during the early 1920's. I am from a small town, so when I asked the library, they immediately pointed me to WWII, I had to explain to them that that didn't happen for another 20 or so years. I am trying to do some personal research and am coming up with nothing. It doesn't help that I am not familiar with the Jewish religion so I don't even know what personal choices a woman would make then. Would she date? Would she go out in public? Would she be the one who made the decisions for her children? That kind of stuff-daily boring stuff.
Thanks for any help,
Are you still looking for this subject? I just saw this 2 years after you wrote it - time flies. There are many books about pre-World War II Jewish women, however, like any other ethnic/religious group, it depends. Women/girls who lived in a shtetel - a country village - were primarily very Orthodox. City women/girls lived a very different kind of life. Is there a particular theme besides these two large subject areas? If you don't need any more help - nevermind.:)
