To celebrate his fiftieth birthday, in 1932 David Ezechiel Cohen presented his family with a book which he had researched and written about the history of his family. This celebration of Dutch Jewish heritage, long known to the family simply as the Cohen Book, is now available in this volume in English, with additional notes and several original illustrations. Some will enjoy it for its delightful vignettes, for others it provides genealogical data, yet above all it offers an insight into a bygone world, a world which Dr Cohen was extraordinarily proud, a world as yet untainted by the Holocaust.
