Chapter Summary

This chapter examines these events: the rise to power of the Nazi movement in Germany, the breakdown of German-Jewish relations, the mass emigration of German Jews, and also the situation of these new immigrants in a yet non-existing Israel, beyond their significance for historical developments and the current European and Middle Eastern political situation, in Max Weber's words, "from the point of view of their cultural significance. The emigration of things can be analyzed in the terms of "cultural transfer". Washboard is part of the work ethic, punchbowl is part of consumer culture and therefore, seemingly, unnecessary. A second important element of this immigrant narrative is food. The guides to household organization, health care, education and other fields of life in home were organized alphabetically, from A like "Aberglauben" to Z. The R was for "Region," giving useful hints about the climate, the outer conditions of life in Palestine.

Keywords: emigration; German-Jewish relations; Palestine; punchbowl; washboard
