Berek, a young penniless Jew of eighteen is struggling to make a home of Turk Place, a desolate street that, in 1873 Vienna, was little more than a Gypsy encampment. But Berek believes fiercely in his own power to forge miracles. Taking the caretaker's daughter as his bride, Berek is confident he can thrive on faith. When a mysterious piece of stone comes into his possession, he and his wife believe their prayers have been answered; the stone may be a holy fragment of Jerusalem's Wailing Wall. This relic, no larger than a brick, proves to transfigure the couple's lives. They make Turk Place their home and three generations of Turk Place residents share the legacy of the Brick. For six decades, the family perseveres in the face of tumultuous events -- World War I, the shattering of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the Great Depression. But Hitler's "final solution" forces them to make an impossible choice: flee the Nazis or remain and perish

Long regarded as the most magical of the European dynasties, the Rothschild family remains one of the most powerful and wealthy in the world. No family in the past two centuries has figured so constantly in Europe's great events or has featured such varied and spectacular personalities. Here you'll meet characters as lively as you can imagine, from Mayer, the long-time advisor to Germany's princes who rose from the ghetto to place his family on the road to wealth and power, to Lord Alfred, who maintained a private orchestra which he conducted himself and a private circus of which he was ringmaster. The family has been at the center of some crucial moments in history, from Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo to the introduction of Jews in the House of Lords. Through it all, the Rothschild name has continued to represent the family ideal: shrewd business sense, activity in the Jewish community and the arts, and an always luxurious--and often eccentric--lifestyle
Runaway waltz by Frederic Morton( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and German and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most revered essayists and novelists of his generation, Frederic Morton has captured with matchless immediacy the glamour of Vienna before World War I and the storied opulence of the Rothschild family in his bestselling and award-winning works. Now, in his first book in more than fifteen years, he delivers a luminous look at his own unique pursuit of the American dream. Like many Austrian boys in 1936, the author idolizes Fritz Austerlitz, the Austrian American who went to Hollywood and emerged as Fred Astaire. When his family is forced to flee Vienna, Fritz Mandelbaum becomes Fred Morton and immigrates to New York City. Though he does not learn English until he is sixteen years old, Morton nonetheless goes on to succeed as a writer. The author sets out ten scenes from his pilgrim life and his remarkable road to success: from watching a poorly dubbed Astaire in Vienna to delivering apricot tarts as a baker's assistant in New York; from Salt Lake City where as a young English instructor he met Vladimir Nabokov to a Christmas spent with the Rothschilds at ChAteau Mouton. Runaway Waltz is a soulful, beautifully written portrait of one man's extraordinary quest for fulfillment and enduring transformation
