Description

Between 1870 and the end of World War II, a number of prominent French Jews invested heavily in France's cultural artifacts and were rewarded by being plundered and murdered. James McAuley shows the central role that that art played in the assimilation of French Jews--and how collecting objets d'art was their response to anti-Semitism.
