This is the first book to present Roman Vishniac’s photographs of Berlin – the unknown early oeuvre of one of the master photographers of the twentieth century. The images are accompanied by Mara Vishniac Kohn’s sensitive memoirs of her father and her childhood in Berlin.
Photographer Roman Vishniac came to fame with the book A Vanished World, which features photographs of the world of eastern European Jews. Vishniac lived in the German capital from 1920 to 1939 and captured many scenes of everyday life, including people on the streets, Berlin stock characters, friends, family, and Jewish institutions.
