Abstract:

"This book, Vienna Stories, is Centropa's first major publication in English, and in its pages, nearly 100 elderly Jews share their snapshots, studio portraits, and wedding pictures ranging from grandfathers going off to fight for Austria-Hungary in the First World War to photos of family vacations in the 1950s and 1960s. In this book, every picture has a story. Every name has a face. Vienna stories is not a book of 20th century history. It is a compelling, deeply personal portrait of what the 20th century did to those Viennese Jews who shared their life stories with us." (page [3] of cover)
