Stories from Old Jewish Prague - Magdalena Wagnerová
The long and thorny past of the Prague Jewish diaspora has left us with many monuments and even more stories that have won their unique place among other old Prague legends. When was the foundation stone of the Old New Synagogue laid? Was it really brought from Jerusalem by angels on their snow-white wings? Was the Golem the first artificial man in the world, or was he a man of flesh and bone, like any other mortal man? These and similar stories from the times when the Jewish ghetto began to form in the town, from the times when Josefov was thriving, and also from the times of the mediaeval Jewish pogroms, are contained in the book by M. Wagnerová mapping the history of the old Jewish Prague.
