Emily Rose grew up looking at two large oil paintings hanging above the fireplace mantel in her grandfather’s home in New York City. These paintings led her on a five-year journey to discover her heritage and the world of rural Germany. In the course of her research she uncovered a rich trove of documents, images, facts, and stories that paint a vivid picture of daily life. Never before has a book chronicled the experiences of Jews living in the German countryside during this period. Includes over 75 black-and-white illustrations, a guide for researchers, maps, and a bibliography. Portraits of Our Past was originally published in Germany in 1999.
