The Judengasse in Frankfurt, which was established in 1462, was the first ghetto in Europe and one of the most important centers of European Jewry until it was dissolved in 1796. This book accompanies the new permanent exhibition in the Judengasse Museum. It presents Jewish history and culture from the Middle Ages to the eighteenth century. Featuring paintings, ritual objects, books and documents - and examining these in conjunction with archeological finds - it paints a rich portrait of everyday life in the Judengasse.
