SCHOCKEN, ON THE VERGE OF CONSENSUS
by Noemi Schory
Salman Schocken was the King of department stores in Germany. Before WWII, he owned 22 department stores with 6,000 employees. After being stripped of his citizenship and losing his empire, the family immigrated to Palestine where he founded a modern, Jewish publishing house and acquired the Haaretz newspaper which still survives on the border of consensus.
