Summary:
"This book is a biography and an intellectual biography of Leo Baeck. The book treats him as a community leader and also as an intellectual figure. Baeck is synonymous with German Jewish intellectual life. During the Weimar years, he was very engaged in the integration of Jews in German society. After World War II, his opinion was the opposite: he felt that there should be no Jewish life in Germany"-- Provided by publisher.
