The Jewish Chronicle Archive is a digitised archive of the original print versions of the Jewish Chronicle newspaper going back over 175 years, to 1841.

Archive Description

Founded in 1841, the Jewish Chronicle is the world’s oldest and most influential Jewish newspaper. Its archive provides a valuable insight into the life and outlook of Anglo-Jewry covering world events, national politics, diverse Jewish religious outlooks, social change, as well as commentary and opinion from leading political and cultural figures throughout the newspaper’s history.

In the archive you can read contemporary reporting on events such as: the mass immigration from Eastern Europe in the 1890’s, the controversy over the Aliens Act in the 1900’s, the First World War, the rise of Fascism in Europe, the Shoah and Second World War, and the Foundation of the State of Israel in 1948.
