This book is the first look at Jews in Wales to draw extensively on oral history, bringing the voices of Welsh Jews into a field of history that has largely focused on formal studies rooted in synagogues and institutions. Cai Parry-Jones focuses in particular on the impact of World War II on Wales's Jewish population, as well as the importance of the Welsh context in shaping the Welsh-Jewish experience. The book concludes with a look at the numerical decline of Wales's Jewish communities through the twentieth century and their situation in the early years of the twenty-first.
Cai Parry-Jones is a curator of oral history at the British Library.

Editorial Reviews

“Cai Parry-Jones’s book provides the first comprehensive study of the Jewish diaspora in and from Wales. He uses the widest possible range of sources, including oral histories, to broaden our picture of Jewish life the length and breadth of the principality. The Jews of Wales will be an essential text for anyone studying Welsh history and its treatment of its minorities, as well as for anyone wishing to learn more about Jewish life in the United Kingdom.”
