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!
