Isidor

A Jewish Life
Published by Diogenes as Isidor
Original Title: Isidor

Dr. Isidor Geller has made it: he is a highly respected business man, an advisor to the Austrian government, a multi-millionaire, an opera lover, art collector and, after two failed marriages, is in a relationship with a beautiful singer. He has come a long way: from a shtetl in the furthest, most impoverished recesses of Galicia to the most elite circles of Viennese society. 
No one can touch him now, Isidor is sure of that – and certainly not those vulgar National Socialists.
But in 1938, everything changes from one day to the next.
