Resumen

DAVIDOVITCH, Nadav  y  ZALASHIK, Rakefet. "Air, sun, water": Ideology and activities of OZE (Society for the preservation of the health of the Jewish population) during the interwar period. Dynamis [online]. 2008, vol.28, pp.127-149. ISSN 0211-9536.

This paper follows the social and political history of OZE, the Society for the Preservation of the Health of the Jewish Population, in the interwar period. We focus on two campaigns against typhus and favus, the first two disease oriented efforts by OZE, in order to reconstruct the operational approaches, considerations and obstacles faced by OZE as a Jewish organization and transnational participant in the discourse on the health and politics of minorities between two world wars. The analysis of OZE as a transnational Jewish relief organization has a wider significance as an example of international organizations originating from civil initiatives to promote the health of minorities through field work and politics.

Palabras clave : interwar health; Jewish relief organization; transnational public health; typhus; ringworm.
