This review is from: Last Waltz in Vienna: The Destruction of a Family, 1842-1942 (Paperback)
The discovery of this book was serendipity! The author's obituary in 'The Times' persuaded my wife and me to buy the book. It is a truly horrific tale of the plight of the Jewish population in the Hitler years, but before that, the everyday life of a prosperous Jewish family in Vienna is explained vividly.
For a marvellous readable record of one man's family over a hundred-year period of fortune and misfortune , this is a magnificent piece of writing.
