The Lionhearted, a novel about the Jews in Medieval
England. JPS , 1944. 243 p. $2.50.
The author chose his theme from the age of the Crusades, when the position
of the Jews in Europe was similar to their present day plight. England, and
more particularly London, furnish the locale. The chief events center around
the coronation of Richard I, and the bloody pogroms th a t followed. The
novel achieves a well drawn contrast between the dashing and daring crusaders,
and the peace loving, but even braver Jews. (14-16)
