Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Neither a guide or a history in the narrow sense, presents the Jewish face of Budapest from medieval times to the present.

Book News Annotation:

Offers a richly illustrated history of Jews in Budapest, from medieval times to the present, and gives a comprehensive account of Jewish culture and ritual customs in Budapest. Looks in turn at each of the Jewish quarters of the city, focusing on patterns of settlement and occupation, on biographic details of key figures, and on historical monuments. Pays special attention to the usage of Hebrew and Jewish scholarship, and to the integration of the Jews into society and preservation of their Jewish identity. Includes color and b&w photos and illustrations.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
