Item description for My Opa: The Diary Of A German Rabbi by Fred Gottlieb...
My Opa is the diary of Rabbi Dr. Isaac Rosenberg, who lived from 1860 until 1940. This diary provides a glimpse into German Jewish life nearly twenty years before its ultimate destruction. The diary documents the pastoral life of a German Orthodox rabbi in the Jewish community of Thorn, a small city in Eastern Germany. By means of daily entries spanning the years of 1911 to 1920, the momentous events of the Great War are described. Rabbi Rosenberg provides an incisive commentary on the military and political aspects of the war. His predictions of what was to come had an uncanny prescience. My Opa is Dr. Fred Gottlieb's compilation and translation of the original volumes that comprised some 500 pages of tightly-spaced notes in German, Hebrew, Yiddish, shorthand, and Latin.
