In her first book, Gold, co-chair of the Washington Jewish Film Festival and senior editor at Moment, the largest independent Jewish magazine in North America, applies her skills as a former BBC investigative reporter to tracking the fate of her family’s Berlin property both during the Reich and in the city’s post-war Soviet sector. Built by her great-grandfather in 1910 to house his fur company, the property was seized by the Nazi head of the Victoria Insurance company—a man also connected with German Railways, instrumental in Auschwitz transports. With the fall of the Berlin Wall, however, the dreams of reclaiming the property became a successful fight for restitution, and Gold’s chronicle is the rare story of determination and justice.
