[History/Solo] History of the Jews in Russia and Poland, Volume 1 [of 3] From the Beginning until the Death of Alexander I (1825) by Simon Dubnow (1860 - 1941). Translated by Israel Friedlaender (1876 - 1920)


Simon Dubnow was born in 1860 to a poor Jewish family in Belarussian town of Mstsislaw and later became authority of Jewish history and an activist. Due to his Jewish origin, he had to move to St.Petersburg, Odessa, Vilna(Lithuania), St.Petersburg(2nd time), Kaunas(Lithuania), Berlin and finally Riga(Latvia) after Hitler came to power. When Nazi troops occupied Latvia 1941, he was moved with thousands of other Jews to Riga ghetto and was eventually killed. His life is a symbol of Jewish suffering in Eastern Europe in the first half of 20 century. This book is one of the most extensive and thorough study of the glory and suffering of the Jews in Russia and Poland for 2000 years.

This project is looking for prooflisteners. A DPL (Dedicated Proof Listener) would be preferred, but until one is found, we need prooflistening for completed sections.

Greetings Sir SS Kim
Thank you for taking on this task which yields history of this nation of people struggling between traditional Judaism and the first-century church.

When I first began to listen, I had to reduce the volume due to your rich booming voice. Then, you settled into a comfortable volume as you traversed the challenging terrain of the passages of this printed history. I am glad to take this course with you; for on my own, I could not have fared as well. Thank you.

I am new to the forum and may not have the experience to be a PL or DPL. However, I would like to go further with you on this journey.
