The drastic changes the world saw in the previous century have been so sweeping that the world as we know it would be unrecognizable to a person born 100 years ago. In Eastern Europe, which saw the rise and fall of communism in the last century, the changes are particularly dramatic. How did this affect the Jews in particular? Rabbi Wein exposes the bitter social conditions which led so many Jews to embrace communism and anti-religious attitudes, and though the yeshiva and Hasidic movements still preserved the Jewish way of life, because of Hitler and Stalin, Eastern European Jewry has all but disappeared.
