Re: life in small villages: Amschelberg #austria-czech
Peter Lowe <Peter.Lowe@...>
Charles Nydorf's email on this subject, reminded me of a book, >from
which one can glean a lot about life in a Bohemian village, with a
substantial Jewish population.
The village is Amschelberg (now Kosova Hora in Czech Republic) and the
Amschelberger Jugenderinnerungen (1855-1875-1880) by Dr. Markus Lowy (1909)
Pages relating to HUEBSCHER, FUERTH, ADLER, REICHENSTEIN, FRANK & KOHN
can be seen on my website; I have a copy of the whole book if anyone is
The book contains a humerous account of each family, often giving
details of trade and standing within the village & Jewish Community.
Requires ability to read German!!
MODERATOR NOTE: Queries about the book should be addressed
directly to Peter.
