Book Description:

“This is a wonderful book, imaginatively researched, highly informative, and daring. In describing the storied Jewish community of Worms from its earliest advent to the present, Roemer has tackled a millennium of history and has demonstrated, more convincingly than any book I know, the continuities of Jewish memory. Controversially, he also shows how the construction of Jewish memory borrowed from Christian memorial practices and reshaped them.” (Helmut Walser Smith, Martha Rivers Ingram Professor of History, Vanderbilt University)

“Nils Roemer’s new book brings together theoretical questions that pertain to local history, history and memory and Jewish-Christian relations in medieval, early modern and modern Europe. It opens up an exciting new way of telling the story of one city, providing thoughtful insights on how conceptions of time, place and community changed over a period of a thousand years. This book will be enjoyed by those who are interested in medieval and modern history alike.” (Elisheva Baumgarten, Bar-Ilan University)
