As a tour guide who regularly shows visitors around the Jewish Quarter (Josefov) in Prague, I thought this book might add some stories and some insight to what I talk about on the tour.

However, what I found was inaccuracy after inaccuracy. Just as an example, in the story about the Pinkas Synagogue, the author declares that it was built by Pinkas. Actually, the synagogue was built in 1535 by the Horowitz family.

There are more errors.

The book is not particularly well written, thus making it a bit difficult to read.

I'm about half way through. Some of the stories are only a few pages. It is interesting how many of the legends come from the same timeframe of the kingdom. I was hoping to learn more about the Golem through this book. Some of what I read was just silly in regard to the abilities of Golem. I guess he was their bigfoot of their time. Entertaining read. It was disturbing to learn some of the history of Prague and the apparent hardships of the Jews living in the city. I wish I would have read this before I made my trip to Prague last year, it would have made an excellent guide, as the book mentions many of the sites and buildings are still standing today. Read this, then go to Prague and check out the sites; it will be a neat tour!

It is so sad but then the truth most often is not pleasant or pretty. The German people (most) closed their eyes to what was going on in their own backyards.
