In Crossroads of Jewish Bratislava, the author identifies several key junctures
that determined the history of Jews in Bratislava between the 19th
and 21st centuries, especially in terms of their culture and way of life.
The first part of the book (History) provides an overview of historical
milestones, with a particular emphasis on the two totalitarian regimes
(the Wartime Slovak State and Communist Czechoslovakia 1948–1989).
The second part, entitled Dilemmas, examines the current situation of
Jewish cemeteries, the consequences of the Holocaust, and the ongoing
transformations of Jewish holidays. The author’s research leads to the
conclusion that traditional manifestations of Jewish culture are being
reshaped by factors of selectiveness, streamlining, and individualisation.
