Details: This is a new book, not a translation.
The Jews of Kaiserstrasse were wealthy, successful, worldly and
cultured—active participants in the commercial, social, and municipal
life of Mainz. They considered themselves German citizens, a community
whose history in this Rhineland city stretched back over a thousand
years.

Starting with the author's own family, this meticulously researched
book vividly details the stories of 300 Jewish residents of a single
fabled street in Mainz—from the rise of German National Socialism to
the end of the Second World War and Germany's defeat in 1945.

Packed with history and anecdote, this book opens a unique window on
German-Jewish history. A must-read!
