Summary During the era of Jewish mass migration from Eastern Europe (from the 1880s until the First World War), Switzerland with its liberal policies on foreigners became a key destination for students, revolutionaries, and travelers. The micro-studies and more general approaches of this volume interweave and facilitate a novel take on the transitory spatial history and the Lebenswelt of East European Jews in Switzerland. Topics range from the location of Switzerland on the map of East European Jewish politics, modern Jewish literature, and the Russian-Jewish students?'‚ colonies in Berne and Zurich.
