Palestine, and later Israel, has been of foremost importance for German-Jewish immigration. Famous texts by major writers, including Else Lasker-Schüler, Sammy Groneman, Max Brod, Arnold Zweig or Shalom Ben-Chorin, were published in Palestine, not in Germany. The electronic resource contains writings of all genres of German-Jewish immigrants that were published between 1890-2000 in Palestine and Israel. It contains approximately 1,500 entries, of which ca. 250 are linked to their full texts. A classification of text genres (historical, fictional, scientific, political and religious literature as well as everyday literature) allows for the systematic use of the database.
The search can be narrowed down to “entries with full text” by clicking on the browse button.
Using the search category “subject” you can find texts from the relevant areas. The following subject areas can be selected (only in German):
See also the printed bibliography Deutsche Sprachkultur in Palästina/Israel. Geschichte und Bibliographie which opens up the material in its historical and systematic contexts.
Here you will find instructions for searching in Deutsch-jüdische Quellen aus Palästina / Israel and explanations of the individual search functions.
You have two different options for searching.
The search form allows you to search using various search criteria. To do so, select the appropriate criterion in the search field and enter your search term(s) in the search field. The following search criteria are available:
These operators can be combined with each other.
Please note: The search is not case sensitive. Truncation does not work currently in title search.
You have the option to apply several search criteria at the same time. To do this, click on "Add row" in the search form. This creates a second search field in which you can set another search criterion (or else the same one). You can create as many additional search fields as you like.
If you use more than one search field, the search will find all entries that match all search criteria (“Search for all of these terms”) (AND). Instead, you can also select “Search for any of these terms” (OR) above the search fields, which will cause the search to find all entries that match at least one of the searched criteria.
By clicking on "Add NOT" you create a search field to which you can assign a search criterion. Terms entered in this search field will be excluded from the search. You can add this search field as often as you like.
By combining the above functions, you are able to perform very specific searches.
You want to search in Deutsch-jüdische Quellen aus Palästina / Israel for all entries that mention the word "Religion" and the place “Tel Aviv”. However, you want to exclude entries that were published between “1970” and “1980” from the search. For this you use the search form as follows:
On the start page of the database you can view indices of all contained Places from A to Z. By clicking on a term you get to the results list, which shows all entries that contain the place or person. In case of a lemma the results list shows all entries which have the full lemma in their title.
The results that match your search are listed on one or more pages. The number of search results as well as the search criteria can be found above the results list.
Each search result consists of the title of the entry, author(s) if existent, access information, entry type, online publication date (print publication date in brackets, if applicable), the cover of the database as well as a button to download the PDF ("Download PDF"), if available, and a text preview showing relevant text passages and highlighting the searched term in yellow (only for Full Text search criterion).
You can access a search result by clicking on the title or cover of the database. If you do not have access to the database, please log in first.
The search results are sorted by relevancy (frequency and weighting of the searched terms). You can also sort by date ("New to old" or "Old to new") or by title ("A to Z" or "Z to A").
Furthermore, instead of the default 10 results per page, you can also display 20, 50 or 100 results per page.
The search results can be further restricted under "Filter Results". Various filter options are available for this:
All filters can be combined with each other. Filtering by certain filter options excludes further certain filter options if there are no entries which match both options.
