The Warburgs family stood right at the pinnacle of the German Jewry. It had people from different disciplines of life including philanthropists, bankers, socialites, scholars, politicians and artists as well.
They went on to forge the economic dynasties, built a number of estates and mansions, built libraries, setup charities and also advised a German Kaiser and a couple of then American presidents.
But, their immense success made the Warburgs the speedy bars for the anti-Semitism. This caused their sense of patriotism to get excessively dangerous in a country like Germany, which had declared the Jews people as a clear cut enemy.
The highly fascinating history told by Ron Chernow here is about a clan of family members, who were known for the culture, brilliance and their personal energy.
Despite all this, they were highly vulnerable to the irrational and the dark currents of the 20th century. Everything in the book is worth your time and makes a must read.
The author Ron Chernow has written a number of books based on some historic event and also a number of inspiring biographies of many influential personalities from the history.
