German-Jewish Bookdealers

For those who are seeking books on German-Jewish history, there are a few sources that have been found to be especially useful.  We have no personal interest in any of these, and are presenting them as an aid to researchers.

  • Literatur Handlung: It is often referred to by the name of the owner, Dr. Rachel Salamander.  Their main store is in Munich, with branches in Berlin and Vienna.  They specialize in Jewish books and have many books on the histories of Jewish communities, as well as a host of other German, Jewish and Israeli books, CDs and tapes.

  • Amazon:  In Germany it has many books relevant to German-Jewish history that are not sold through their US-based website.
