This is a study of how the Breslau Jewish community, the third largest and one of the most affluent in Germany, coped with Nazi persecution from 1933 until its liquidation in 1943.


Abraham Ascher is Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Graduate Center, City University of New York. His recent works include P. A. Stolypin: The Search for Stability in Late Imperial Russia (Stanford, 2000) and The Revolution of 1905: A Short History (Stanford, 2004).


"Professor Ascher's pioneering study describes in minute detail how the Nazi authorities, over a number of years, systematically 'liquidated' the Breslau Jewish community. He also relates on the basis of much hitherto unknown or unused material how the Jews reacted individually and as a community. It is a tragic story repeated many times over in Germany and other European countries, but it has never before been told in such authoritative detail. It is much more than local history and will serve as a model for the historiography of this dark period." - Walter Laqueur"
