Rather, Kobrin deftly creates a complex portrait of economic and geographic mobility within Eastern Europe; of the creation of a power and financial center of Bialystoker Jews in New York, the single major destination of those who left the home city; of the charitable, political and affective ties that bound New York Bialystoker to their regional fellows at home and in various other Bialystoker "colonies," especially Argentina and Australia; of the local social gains that accrued to the philanthropic efforts of Bialystoker elsewhere; and of the political and social differences that marked and sometimes disrupted Bialystoker diasporic solidarity.
This process entailed, among other things, extensive migration to Bialystok from the countryside and older shtetlekh, along with extensive entrepreneurship--experiences that twentieth-century publicists of the Bialystoker diaspora drew on (especially in Argentina) to create an image of the Bialystoker Jewish character as uniquely both extremely loyal and pragmatically innovative.
In the case of Bialystok, those reimaginations involved shifts and tensions in primary loyalty, between philanthropy aimed at the Jewish community left behind in old Bialystok, the population of Bialystoker in New York and elsewhere in its diaspora, the larger Jewish emigre community in New York, and eventually Palestine/Israel.
Many wonderful facts emerge: there is a town in Argentina called Bialystok; one of the most extensive reports on the Bialystoker kuchen came from Australia; the inventor of Esperanto, Ludwik Zamenhof, came from Bialystok; finally, now, after all, there is a bialy bakery in Bialystok, aptly named the New York Bagel Bakery.
The main direction of local memory politics, mutually reinforcing the collective memory of modern Bialystokers, is to highlight the period of the second half of 18th century, when Bialystok, as a private town of Jan Klemens Branicki, experienced a period of prosperity.
Zamenhof does not go with the promotion of his ideas or even Esperanto language, which for most Bialystokers remains unknown.
Bialystokers are obviously proud of Branicki period.
