Synopsis

The author leads the reader from the humble activities of Jewish tradesmen in the war-plagued Holy Roman Empire of the 17th century to their ascent to the unofficial but important status of Court Jews. Dealing with a broad array of at times sharply divergent opinions the author does not shy away from controversies. This study centers on the history of the largest international German metal concerns, headquartered still today in Frankfort on the Main. In its broader context, however, the narrative describes the economic and social evolution during more than three centuries of a section of German Jewry, focusing in particular on the Hanover Court Jews and their early involvement with banking and the silver, lead and copper industries of the Harz region. This is fascinating narrative about the evolution of the "metal chain" through three and a half centuries.
