For every person’s story, Cohn provides copious amounts of background information on the location, the history, and how Jews were treated in the region in the past few centuries. I realize this is done in order to place each story in the proper context, but I ended up skimming most of it. Even the stories themselves lost a lot of the immediacy for me because they are filtered through Cohn. There seemed to be very few direct quotes (that I could see at least). Add in the numerous grammatical errors and typos, and odd turns of phrase, and this was not as good a book as I was expecting it to be.
