“One of the largest and most comprehensive collections of Jewish images and subjects ever to be published

Virtually every Jewish figure who has achieved anything in the fields of arts, sciences, politics and sports is in there”

Alex Kasriel, Jewish Chronicle December, 2008

“A magnificent treat of a photo album, packed with portraits of every Jew you've ever heard of - and plenty that will have you saying "Him? Never!"

The book is a delight [...] many of those included will feel their names will now be remembered down the ages simply because they are in it.”

Jonathan Freedland, Jewish Chronicle, December 2008
