Summary/Abstract: THE BOOK IS READYBLE ONLY BY READERS BEING FAMILIAR WITH GERMAN FRAKTURA CHARACTERS !! ... "I would solve my task in a very imperfect way if I content myself with only describing the position and circumstances of the Jews in general. Just as the history of the German people and German law only comes to life through the detail, just as rarely the same is true of the south as of the north, of the cities as of the flat country, so the Jews as well in different places found very different destiny. Everywhere they were considered to be in need of protection, but in one place they were really granted protection, in the other they were completely abandoned to arbitrariness. So it is not enough to give a general description, not even to communicate the laws and privileges enacted for them; it is rather to show how far these legal rules have been realized in life. And I hoped to do this best by collecting as much detail as possible about the history of the most important communities, even at the risk of repeating myself here and there." (from the author’s introduction)
