Fate of a Jewish Family: The Erdheims in Vienna
Unser Österreich: Wien Geschichte aus der Vorstadt
In Our Austria, Katharina Heigl explores the eventful history of Vienna through the dramatic experience of the Erdheim family. A family of Jewish entrepreneurs, they prospered in Galicia, now Ukraine, and were able to fulfil their dream of moving to Vienna. But the First World War and the fall of the Habsburg monarchy meant they again found themselves in a city in a state of emergency. With hunger, unemployment, and thousands of citizens of the empire trying to build a new life for themselves.
