Opis: Strassmanns - W. Paul Strassmann, P Strassman

Across six generations and two hundred years, this book tells the story of a German-Jewish family who emigrated from Rawicz, Poland, first to Prussian Berlin, and then to America. In Berlin they found success in politics, medical science, theatre, and aviation and considered themselves German patriots. With the catastrophe of the First World War and its aftermath, they suffered rejection, threats, and persecution as their fellow citizens became unhinged by Nazism, forcing them into exile in America where they again made their mark and rebuilt successful careers. Populated by extraordinary characters, such as Wolfgang, the doomed revolutionary of 1848 who then led urban reform; Ernst who directed an anti-Nazi resistance movement; and Antonie, actress, celebrity, and sport pilot, the book will have special appeal to many readers; Strassmann highlights both the large-scale and the very personal dramas of this period in world history. The volume is enhanced by many photographs, offering fascinating documents of the fate of a remarkable family. There is much to recommend in this family history for interested students and scholars of modern German and German-Jewish history and the Holocaust. It is a penetrating look into the culture of successful upper-middle-class German families of Jewish descent prior to Hitler's assumption of power in January 1933 - It is an inspiring story of the survival of a strong, loyal, forward-looking, albeit well-placed and well-connected family under the most difficult circumstances.A" * Central European History W. Paul Strassmann's genealogical account of his own family's history is an excellent case study detailing the successes and setbacks of a single remarkable German-Jewish family during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries - The most valuable contribution of his book is the wide range of personal sources he gathers - Strassmann's book makes important contributions to the source basis for the study of fields such as migration, Jewish history, and medical history. This work will be especially useful for breathing life into the larger narrative of Jewish and European history. In this respect, it stands as an invaluable tool for instructors and lecturers.A" * H-Net Reviews This book shows once again how significant was the contribution of the small Jewish minority to the achievements of the German bourgeoisie before the devastation of the Nazis barbarism - W.Paul Strassmann tells [his family's history] soberly, without pathos, yet with much warmth.A" * Berliner Tagesspiegel What this book offers is a thick description of German-Jewish everyday life in the 19th and 20th centuries. Mild irony is a great stylistic device, used here to great effect by the author who observes his forebears with empathy but also with scholarly detachment.A" * Archiv fur SozialgeschichtePreface : Family History and Working with the Past Jutta Lange-Quassowski Chapter 1.
