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

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

The luck of the (Jewish) Irish?!

In 2016, an extremely significant yet little-known resource was acquired by the National Library of Israel…

The journal of one 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 journal offers us a valuable glimpse into the experience of Jewish migration to Ireland during the so-called mass emigration period (1881-1914).

The 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.
