In this chapter the author continues the account of his activities with the Loan Bank in Palestine. Frieden seems to have considered his work to be at the core of his existence, and so the story of his life remains structured around a de- scription of his work. Here there is much detail about the operations of the Loan Bank and about its relationship with other financial institutions in Palestine, making Frieden’s memoir a very valuable source of information about the economic history of the Yishuv from an insider’s perspective. This section also provides unique glimpses into subjects such as Warsaw Jewish life in the interwar period; the inner workings of the Yishuv; and the violence that frequently accompanied the development of the Jewish community in Palestine between the two World Wars.

Keywords:   Loan Bank, Palestine Economic Corporation, economic history, Yishuv, Poland, Arab riots of 1929, Emanuel Mohl
