• HHBD update: new budgets from Palestine, 1940s

    April 14, 2016

    The HHB Project is enriched by a new source that investigates the economic conditions and food consumption of more than 4,000 Jewish households in Palestine, 1942-43 and 1946.


    Sarah Bavly (1900-1993), a Dutch-born nutritionist, authored "Family food consumption in Palestine, a comparison of consumption by the Jewish urban population in 1943 and 1946, and a study of methods conducive to improvement of food selection", published in 1949 and reporting mainly aggregate data.


    The HHB team is now faced with the challenge to retrieve the family-level records underlying this publication. In case you can help, do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
