Oral History and Food Questionnaire:

This bibliography of over 1,000 entries includes sources used for research and background for Portraits of Our Past: Jews of the German Countryside. The books and articles are available in the United States or in Germany. I have not included general histories of Germany or America, general books on Judaism, or specific village and town histories.


The Oral History Questionnaire is useful when interviewing relatives and contacts who lived in the German villages and towns or have information about those experiences. It focuses on life in the early twentieth century.

The Food Questionnaire is a guide to learning about the foods and dishes the German Jews enjoyed at the beginning of the twentieth century.
