Dialann Deoraí (Diary of an Exile): Jewish Migration and Settlement in Ireland through the Lens of Personal Experience

Dr. Natalie Wynn

Dialann Deoraí (Diary of an Exile): Jewish Migrationand Settlement in Ireland through the Lens of Personal Experience
Dr. Natalie Wynn
, Herzog Centre for Jewish and Near Eastern Religions and Culture, Trinity College Dublin

This talk will examine the experience of Jewish migration to Ireland during the so-called mass emigration period (1881-1914), using a little-known resource acquired by the National Library of Israel in 2016: the journal of Myer Joel Wigoder, who left Lithuania in 1889 and ended up in Dublin around a year later, by way of Antwerp, Amsterdam and Leeds. Wigoder’s memoir provides rare, personal insight both into the process and the experience of migration and resettlement at a time of great upheaval in the Jewish world, allowing us to reconsider both the bigger picture of Jewish migration and the importance of local and personal detail.

Natalie Wynn is a postdoctoral researcher affiliated to the Herzog Centre for Jewish and Near Eastern Religions and Culture, Trinity College Dublin, and specialising in Irish Jewish history in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. She is currently working on a number of projects to re-evaluate the history of IrishJewry within its bigger national and international contexts. These include a monograph on Jewish Ireland: Community, Identity and Conflict (1881-1914); an international online conference on ‘Jewish Immigration in Myth and Reality’; and an edited collection, New Perspectives on the Limerick Boycott.
