Michael Goldfarb visits Frankfurt to learn about writers Ludwig Boerne and Heinrich Heine, whose critiques, poetry and prose inspired a literary movement.
Emancipation was an important part of Jewish history. Segregated for hundreds of years, Jews were integrated and assimilated into European society. But, because of the Holocaust, most of these ghosts have been forgotten, because the community that might have remembered them no longer exists. Michael Goldfarb travels through Europe in search of these ghosts.
In Frankfurt, Michael encounters two Jewish trailblazers, writers Ludwig Boerne and Heinrich Heine whose critiques, poetry and prose inspired a literary movement.
