As far as I know many Jews in South Africa were involved in the struggle for liberation in the apartheid decades in South Africa. Many Jews had fled oppression in European countries, and now they (or their children) were fighting again. A new book on the position of the Jewish community in South Africa has been published. It covers the period of 1930 – 1948. The story has been written by Milton Shain, who is the emeritus professor in the History of South African Jewry and Antisemitism. This is not his first book on the history of the Jews in South Africa.
