A book concerned with challenges faced by Jews in early 19th century Prussia. Until Hitler's rise to power, Breslau (now Wroclaw) had one of the largest Jewish communities in Germany. In 1814, the author's ancestor Nathan Ginsberg was born in the city when Reform Judaism was in its ascendancy. In this book, his education is described in detail to illustrate the difficulties and decisions that Jews in Prussia had to face before members of his faith were given more freedoms in the latter part of the 19th century. The author also provides a traveller's guide to some of the places that Ginsberg might have known in his lifetime, and what is left of them today. Fully illustrated with monochrome images and some maps.
