A best seller in Germany and Austria, the English translation of Kahn & Engelmann was published to great critical acclaim. The novel tells the story of a Jewish family from rural Hungary; their immigration to Vienna in the great days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire; their loves, business ventures, and failings; and their eventual tragic destruction. Narrated by one of the characters, Peter Engelmann, who wishes only to forget his past, this highly original novel recreates a vanished Vienna with salty humor and humanity. In a voice which is appealing without being sentimental, Peter describes his escape from the Nazis through snowy woods, his attempts to start a new life in England and Canada, and his decision to immigrate to Israel.

Written by an eminent scholar, himself a survivor of Nazism, Kahn & Engelmann is both an entertaining novel and a major work of Holocaust literature.
