A Journey Of Discovery

Over the past twenty years or so, Jewish communities around the world have become increasingly interested in their European ancestry with many visiting the lands once inhabited by thriving communities which had existed for many centuries.

For many, this journey of rediscovery is often very painful and traumatic as the full evils of Ha-Shoah or Churban Europa are still vividly present throughout mainland Europe, not merely monuments to the millions who perished, but an enduring testament to life and survival. This journey is essentially one of survival, not just of the Holocaust, but of centuries of pogroms, discrimination, banishment and wars.

The history, heritage and legacy of Jewish Europe or, if you prefer, European Jewry, stretches beyond those areas of the continent that were engulfed by the madness and human misery of the holocaust or devastated by the earlier tsarist pogroms. In fact, we must not forget that our contribution to European history touched all parts of the continent over many, many centuries.

However, one aspect of that long history that is frequently overlooked is the fascinating story of the western migration of Eastern European and Russian Jews to Great Britain and Ireland in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Whilst the Jewish presence is Great Britain is well documented and therefore, largely accessible to researchers around the world, Ireland is a totally different story, only now being revealed in detail.

Stuart Rosenblatt, a Dublin based genealogist and social historian, has amassed an enormous collection of the archival heritage of the Irish Jewish Community spanning approximately three centuries and containing details of over 52,000 (04/2014) individual records. He has collated this information in nineteen huge bound volumes which he has donated to the National Library of Ireland, the National Archives of Ireland, the Genealogical Society of Ireland and the Irish Jewish Museum in Dublin.

This unique project has taken Stuart nearly twenty years and brought him to every city, large town and county in Ireland in the quest for the archival heritage and history of the Irish Jewry, many of whom, spent only one or two generations in Ireland before moving on to North America or further afield. Their short sojourn in the Emerald Isle is frequently unknown to their descendants – a story untold.

Stuart Rosenblatt is now the unrivalled international authority on the history and heritage of the Irish Jewish Community and, in particular, on their archival heritage. Stuart has lectured extensively in Ireland and Great Britain on his research and on the archival heritage uncovered during two decades of painstakingly meticulous and dedicated genealogical research.

The potential application of the fruits of Stuart's work is becoming widely appreciated by academics, genealogists and other researchers, many of whom, have invited him to deliver lectures, seminars and workshops on Jewish Genealogy, Irish Jewish History or on the wonderful archival heritage itself.

Stuart's passion for his work is an inspiration to all and indeed, his deep appreciation and love for the archival heritage that he uncovered is wonderfully infectious. He always endeavours to make himself available for academic conferences, genealogical events and radio or television interviews, for which, he asks no appearance fee, save travel and subsistence for attendance.
