    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This two-volume work documents 11,000 individuals belonging to 10 Jewish families who were related to the Fraenkel family from 1397 to 1992. Many illustrious names are amongst those recorded: the poet Heinrich Heine, the dramatist Carl Sternheim, the philosophers Theodor Lessing, Israel Jacobson and David Friedländer, the composer Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy and the Nobel prize-winning chemist Adolf von Baeyer were all family members. The first volume contains accounts of the family’s history, as well as a bibliography and an index of persons. The second part presents 10 tables with complete family trees. These will be of outstanding value to biographers.
