The effect of transportation on Jewish convicts in Van Dieman's Land
Kelly, NR (1994) The effect of transportation on Jewish convicts in Van Dieman's Land. Honours thesis, University of Tasmania.
The history of the Jewish convicts in Van Diemen's Land is one that
provides the researcher with a wide area to consider. The most important
question however would be, what effect did transportation have on the Jewish
convict? Was their sense of identity overwhelmed by the artificial Christian
emphasis 'offered' by colonial penal society? The evidence perhaps in most cases
would suggest that assimilation, induced by environmental factors was the end
result of transportation.
