Leonard Barkan, “Berlin for Jews: A Twenty-First Century Companion” (U. Chicago Press, 2016)

By Marshall Poe

In Berlin for Jews: A Twenty-First Century Companion (University of Chicago Press, 2016), Leonard Barkan, the class of 1943 University Professor at Princeton, examines the complex histories of Jewish life in Berlin. He offers a nuanced and idiosyncratic account of Jewish lives, places and legacies in this city. This book is a highly readable contribution which will accompany Jews on their trips to Berlin for many years to come. Barkan brings to light little known figures, places and stories in a very personal journey. Max Kaiser is a PhD candidate at the University of Melbourne.
