5 Generations of a Jewish Family in Berlin 1770-1944
This is the story of my family. Traditional Jews coming to Berlin from central Europe and becoming within 2 generations very assimilated Germans of Jewish origin leaving their religion behind. For over 100 years they led a very comfortable middle class existence. Then of course came the Holocaust and this world was turned upside down. A fast-paced PowerPoint presentation accompanies this fascinating narrative.
