Name: Labour In The West Of Ireland

Subtitle:

Author: Cunningham, John

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 1995

ISBN: 0 85034 075 6

Contents: Drawing on police intelligence reports, contemporary accounts and government publications, John Cunningham produces a comprehensive and compelling narrative on the condition of labour in the counties of Connacht in the decades before World War I. He examines the working conditions of herdsmen, dressmakers, dock labourers, shop assistants and other groups of workers in the province, before describing their attempts to organise themselves, their strikes and other struggles. John Cunningham uncovers the first faltering political steps of rural and urban labour, detects an emerging class consciousness, and considers the reaction of political and religious establishments to the nascent labour movement. Preface by Alderman Declan Bree, T.D. 208 pp. Illustrations. Bibliography. Index

Name: Lord Downshire And The United Irishmen

Subtitle: A Selection From The Downshire Papers, 1793-1799

Author:

Editor: Clifford, Brendan

Category: United Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 1998

ISBN: 0 85034 082 9

Contents: "Lord Downshire And The United Irishmen" is a selection from the Downshire Papers for the years 1793 to 1799, the years that saw the rise and suppression of the United Irish movement, and the first steps in the move to merge the Parliament of the Irish Protestant Ascendancy into the British Parliament. The Hill/Downshire family at Hillsborough was the chief aristocratic family in County Down, and was one of the pillars of the British state constructed after the Glorious Revolution of 1688. The Papers reproduced here consist chiefly of letters sent to Lord Downshire, about the growth of the United Irish movement in the County and the measures taken against it. The core of this book consists of 86 of those letters, which are now published for the first time. To this is added a review of the militaristic, slave-owning, aristocratic state created by the Glorious Revolution in the name of Liberty, which led in Ireland to all that is conveyed by the words Seventeen Ninety-Eight. With an historical review of the British Constitution by Brendan Clifford. 120 pp. Index to letters.

Name: Lord Hankey: How We Planned The Great War

Subtitle: Issues 19-20

Author: Walsh, Pat

Editor:

Category: Periodical

Publisher: Problems Of Communism Committee

Published: 2015

ISBN: 1365-7887

Contents: Lord Maurice Hankey gave unparalleled service to the State he served over more than three decades. He was much more than just an Imperial Senior Civil Servant. It would be no exaggeration to say that he kept the British State together over a generation. ‘The Supreme Command’ (1961) by Hankey, though largely ignored today, is the most complete inside description of Britain’s Great War on Germany. It contains details of the planning for that war by the person who oversaw it, coordinated it and put it into operation from August 1914.

Name: Memoirs Of My Jewish Great Grandfather (Karl Holzer)

Subtitle:

Author: Holzer, Karl

Editor: Abukhalil, M.A.

Category: German-Irish Collection

Publisher: Belfast Historical & Educational Society

Published: 2002

ISBN: 1 872078 07 8

Contents: Karl Holzer—a successful Jewish businessman in Vienna—wrote down his Memoirs for his children and grandchildren in the 1920s. His daughter, fleeing Nazism in the late 1930s, brought them to London. A copy of them was sent to her niece in Israel—and eventually came into the hands of his great-grand-daughter—M. A. AbuKhalil—back in London. Nothing too unusual there. What is curious is that his great-grand-daughter is Arabic, as well as Jewish—excluded from Palestine by a military campaign in which her Jewish uncle played a leading part.

Confused? You soon will be!

Many refugees have published their experiences. What is unusual about this book is that it tells the story of a family which had to start life again three times over.

Hedi Aufrichtig was Karl's grand-daughter. She escaped from Europe on an illegal refugee ship to Palestine, where she offended her Jewish milieu by marrying a Palestinian Arab. The fulfilment of the Zionist dream by the Jews of Palestine forced her to start a second life in Cyprus, and then a third in London.

This book contains Karl Holzer's Memoir, in both the original German and an English translation by Angela Clifford. It is introduced by M.A. AbuKhalil. An Epilogue continues Hedi's story, while an Appendix examines how a huge swathe of Hedi's in-laws were driven out of their homeland in 1947-1948.

The story provides a unique insight into the position of Jews in the Austro-Hungarian Empire and into the Palestine / Zion conflict.

Extracts: No extra online material at this time.

Errata: Family information: Hanna Ibrhim Khalil of Bethlehem and Jerusalem married Hedi Aufrichtig of Vienna. They had three daughters, the eldest of which - Angela Khalil Clifford - compiled this book.

It was Hedi Aufrichtig Khalil's grandfather who wrote the memoirs which are reproduced in this book.
