dc.description.abstractRecent research on Jewish migration and ``Jewish spaces'' usually asks for the relevance of ``Jewish spaces'' in Jewish life. This article looks the other way and examines how the changing conditions of Jewish life altered emigrant's perceptions of their ``old home'' in East Europe. It argues that in Jewish memory East Europe functioned as a mythscape which changed from a repressive and revolutionary over a progressive to the lost ``old home''. As a result the article calls to more carefully historicize processes of Jewish memory and spatial semantics as expressions of relations between conflicting groups.
