Kenneth Collins, the leading chronicler of Scotland’s Jews, and a medical historian, tells the story of his family from its origins in Ukraine in the first half of the century. He follows the descendants of his great-grandfather Zev Kagarlitsky in Russia, America, Argentina, France, England and Scotland. Zev was born in a village near Kiev in 1854 and died in Tel Aviv in 1931.
There is a cast of colourful characters including Marxists in Russia, a Holocaust survivor in France, an unexpected death of a Soviet commercial agent in London, as well as early Zionist pioneers and businessmen in Scotland and America.
This is a warm and lively account of an international family that has succeeded in maintaining close links over generations, from Buenos Aries to Moscow and from the West Coast of the United States through Glasgow and London to Jerusalem.
