Book presentation: Barbara Staudinger “Salon Austria: Die großen Köpfe österreichisch-jüdischer Kultur”

![/sites/default/files/old/2146.jpg:right]("" "")In “Salon Austria: Die großen Köpfe österreichisch-jüdischer Kultur” Barbara Staudinger looks at Jewish aspects of Austrian culture and the way in which Jews influenced this culture, presenting prominent and less prominent persons who have contributed in various ways to the Austrian identity. The book includes the “great minds,” whose creativity has made them world-famous, but also less prominent people, who are often forgotten. There is the pathologist and serologist Karl Landsteiner, who won the Nobel Prize for music in 1930, the socialist unionist Käthe Leichter, the philosopher Karl Popper, the salon hostess Fanny von Arnstein, the founder of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud, the writer and doctor Marie Frischauf, the composer Edmund Eysler, the writer and journalist Berta Zuckerkandl, and the banker Bernhard Freiherr von Eskeles.
