Life in small villages #austria-czech

Dear Genners

Charles Nydorf's message reminds me that the novel *Geld und Gut
oder Erziehung und Bildung: Juedisches Familien-und Culturbild aus
dem ersten Drittel des vorigen Jahrhunderts* (Brno, 1902) by Emanuel
Bondi (1819-1908) gives, as its title claims, an idea of life in a
small Jewish community in Bohemia in the early nineteenth century,
with a strong emphasis on the consequences for individuals of the
Familianten laws. Copies of the book are to be found in selected
libraries, such as the Library of Congress.
