'Diary of a Young Soldier'
The daily insights of a Jewish soldier during WWI are available online.
Jack Liss was a former soldier for the British Army’s Jewish Legion in Palestine during the First World War. In his time serving the army from 1918-1919, he kept a diary that documented his experiences in Jerusalem, Cairo and other parts of the Middle East. Now, his diary can be read online.
Previously kept in an Israeli archive, Liss’ children from Houston tracked down the diary and have chosen to publish it on the Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies website. A copy of the writing can be downloaded in its original Yiddish form or in a translated version.
