The Saga of a Jewish Family By Ron Chernow (608 Pages)Publisher: Vintage Books, 1994
The tragic, haunting tale of the most powerful Jewish banking dynasty in Germany and America. The Warburgs were financial advisers to Kaiser Wilhelm II and titans of German business. A glamorously seductive clan, they entered the spheres of business, politics and society previously forbidden to Jews. By intermarrying with the Schiffs and Loebs of Wall Street, they emerged as the royalty of American Jews, only to be defamed by the Nazis as the international cabal and to have their paradise torn apart.
