It's always interesting to read first-person accounts of pogroms--I think it's the most vivid way to show the hell of being hunted like that. By the way, I recently saw a filmed version of the Tom Stoppard play Leopoldstadt, which dramatizes the life of a Viennese Jewish family between 1898-1948. It may be of interest to you and Evgenia since it touches on some of the themes you're interested in, particularly the weaponization of immigrants (though the term 'immigrant' is sort of loose in this case).
