This definitive guide to the treasures of Jewish Europe is, in the words of Elie Wiesel, "superbly written and illustrated [and] packed with dramatic tales and picturesque details." Edited by a 16-member team of esteemed journalists and historians, this unique guide invites readers to discover a Europe off the beaten tourist-track. In addition to important historic sites such as the ghetto of Venice, the old Jewish quarter of Prague, and the Anne Frank house, the authors explore the hidden gems of Jewish culture typically absent from other travel guides, from synagogues in Provence to cobbled village lanes in Romania, from a Sephardic museum in Toledo to a Jewish bakery in Budapest. Plentiful anecdotes and historical essays paint a rich narrative of Jewish life and culture from antiquity to the present day, making for fascinating reading on the road or at home. Practical, thorough, and packed with photographs and a wealth of information in a compact trim size, this comprehensive guide is every traveler's passport to discovering Europe's estimable Jewish heritage.
Published with the assistance of The Jacques and Jacqueline Levy-Willard Foundation, dedicated to the advancement of the artistic and cultural Jewish heritage.
