Documenting how Berlin was the center of Jewish life in Germany for centuries, this history demonstrates how Jewish citizens strongly influenced the city's cultural and literary life and led the way in the natural sciences. Life after World War I is also studied, including the economic crisis, hyper-inflation, and depression that provided rich soil for the growth of an aggressive form of anti-Semitism, which ultimately led to the death camps of the Holocaust. This richly illustrated book depicts the history of Jewish life in the German capital, with a last chapter that focuses on new beginnings in the post-Shoah age.
