Zakhor: Jewish History and Jewish Memory
Zakhor: Jewish History and Jewish Memory is a non-fiction book first published in 1982 by the historian Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi (1932 - 2009) — a professor of Jewish history at Columbia University. It consists of four lectures that Yerushalmi gave as part of the 1980 series of "Stroum Lectures in Jewish Studies", now known as the Samuel and Althea Stroum Lectures in Jewish Studies, at the University of Washington in Seattle. Harold Bloom wrote the foreword for the publication. The title, Zakhor, is the Hebrew word for remember. The New Yorker described the book as "one of the most influential works on Jewish history" since the 1950s.
