    FREE DOWNLOAD ï The Borscht Belt The Borscht BeltI love the essays love learning about American Jewish cultural history I think my interest in this Borscht Belt history is like my interest in pre Stonewall LGBT history or about Idlewild I like learning about periods when groups had to create their own worlds before becoming integrated into broader societyThe essays in this book were really interesting but the photos made me super sad though all the essays in the book told me not to feel that way It felt a little like ruin porn like Pruitt IgoeHonestly I just wish I could have been there in the heyday 😔😔😔
