"The Story of the Jewish People in the Twentieth Century. By Berel Wein. This is the story of the Jewish people in the most turbulent century in history. As the world became smaller and more interconnected, it became harder and harder - and finally impossible - for any nation to segregate itself from the events swirling around it.
