March Series of the Month: History of the Jews by Heinrich Graetz - in Memory of Anne Frank

In memory of Anne Frank, who died in March 1945, at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany, Cosimo's Series of the Month for March is History of the Jews by Heinrich Graetz.

A landmark work of Jewish history and a worldwide phenomenon when it was first published, this masterpiece of Jewish history was translated in multiple languages and instantly become the de facto standard in the field. German academic Heinrich Graetz brings a sympathetic Jewish perspective to the story of his own people, offering readers today an affectionate, passionate history, not a detached, clinical one. 

Backed by impeccable scholarship and originally published in German across 11 volumes between 1853 and 1875, this six-volume English-language edition was abridged under the direction of the author, and brought to American readers by the Jewish Publication Society of America in 1891. It remains an important work of the study of the Jewish religion and people to this day.
