RE 1946 World Jewish Congress Survey section on Transylvania

I am trying to locate the Archives of the 1946 WJC Survey of Transylvania- Cluj, Oradea,and Carei in Israel.                                                                                          Would appreciate finding out where in Israel I might access them.

I don't think a fair reading of my post would lead to the conclusion that I believe "demonizing of Jews is limited to ultra-Rightists."  Quite the contrary, as history has documented all too well.

Hank Greenspan faults me for not mentioning rightists who are antisemites in my two blogs that criticizes tendencies toward populist antisemitism among social democrats.

Hi Clare,

I understand that a blog post can't include a lot of nuance.  But how does the role Jews played in creating/leading labor movements and related in the U.S. and (when possible) in Europe--thus becoming the internationalist Left menace rather than the Right one--fit your theory?
