Michael Wolffsohn – German-Jewish children of fortune. A world history of my family

The Author Speaks to Julia Franck (in German)

Despite severe blows of fate, the majority of the family Wolffsohn was lucky. In the broadly scattered German-Jewish family, Jewish and world history are reflected on the family level.

Michael Wolffsohn, who has just been awarded the "University Lecturer of the Year" by the German University Association, has just written the story of his family over five generations spanning a whole century.
