Schocken: A Self-Made Man

A new film 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.
