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.
