Review

"This beautiful and melancholy book is more than a guide to great Jewish cities: it is a book of tales." -- Elie Wiesel, author and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

I was lucky to find this book in the library and used it extensively while in Warsaw, Cracow and Prauge. The detail is incredible, the writing style excellent with a lilt of humor. This book -made- my trip so I'm buying my own copy. If you take this book to Europe with you don't bother hiring a guide or taking a tour. It has more than any individual could offer.

This book is a gem! I pick it up and settle down in my chair and am transported in time and place to Eastern Europe. I was in Prague before I read the book (it had not been published yet) and now when I read the Prague sections everything comes to life. Mr. Valley has a way with words. He supples the reader with his dense knowledge of his subject in an easy to read, matter of fact style. I would recommend this book to anyone whether or not they are planning to travel to the cities described. I am eagerly awaiting his next book.

Having known Eli many years ago at University, I couldn't wait to read this book to re-establish spiritual contact. What I wasn't prepared for was the depthand passion that Eli had written on the subject. This is a masterpiece that once you have picked up you will not put down until you have seen the cities and experienced the tours first hand. My only regret is that the vast majority of those reading this book may never actually visit Prague.

For anyone interested in the Jewish history of Eastern Europe, this book is compulsory. It also presents conceptual and detailed history of over a thousand years and up-to-date descriptions of what the traveller will find now. Don't leave it behind despite its heft.

Format: Hardcover
When I purchased this book for a recent visit to Prague and Cracow, I thought it would simply point me to the places of Jewish interest. To my delight, the book did so much more. It's filled with stories, anecdotes, and insider information that made our trip a personally uplifting experience. I had no idea there was so much to still see in these cities. My only complaint is that the book is so big - over 500 pages - that it can become a burden for light travelers. But it's a must-read for any visitor who wishes to see and to learn about how the Jews lived in Europe throughout the centuries. We returned from Europe last week, and I'm still re-reading the book for the memories.
