Peter Tammes of the University of Southampton reviews Points of Passage: Jewish Transmigrants from Eastern Europe in Scandinavia, Germany, and Britain 1880–1914. In this book, the author explores a number of questions including the exact causes of emigration of Jews from the Austro-Hungarian empires, the organization of mass transit migration, why and for how long Jews stopped over in transit countries, and the transit experiences of migrants, especially those who had to return. The seven chapters in this edited volume shed light on these understudied subjects, making a valuable contribution to this field.
