Simon Dubnow: Buch des Lebens

Simon Dubnow, born 1860 in Mstislawl in White Russia, murdered in 1941 by the Nazis during the violent forced evacuation of the Riga ghetto, is the greatest chronicler of Eastern European Jewry.

 

Author of the famous 10-volume »World History of the Jewish People from Its Earliest Beginnings to the Present,« he is considered one of the most eminent Jewish historians of all time. His memoirs, written in Russian in Berlin between 1920 and 1933, entitled Das Buch des Lebens, are published here for the first time in German translation. This three-volume edition, edited by Verena Dohrn at the Simon Dubnow Institute in Leipzig, returns the personality and work of this great Russian-Jewish historian, publicist and educator to the German-speaking world.
