Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Mediene Remnants: Yiddish Sources in the Netherlands Outside of Amsterdam contains the table of contents and the introduction. In introduction, this inventory provides a survey of the extant Yiddish sources relating to the Jewish communities of the Netherlands in Dutch archives. While some scholars may be familiar with a section of these Yiddish sources. The principal conclusion of the present inventory, and a guiding principle in its compilation, is that it is by no means exhaustive and represents only a modest beginning. The amount of material that has survived is enormous. Because of the constraints of time it was decided to concentrate on archives of Jewish communities in the Dutch provinces, the Mediene, and to ignore Yiddish sources relating to the Jewish community of Amsterdam. The Jewish communities referred to in the present inventory are the various Ashkenazi communities in the Netherlands.

Keywords: Amsterdam; Ashkenazi community; Dutch archives; Jewish Communities; Mediene Remnants
