Wed, 11. Jun 2014, 19:30-21:30 The Rothschilds. A European Family and the Railroad Lecture by Dr. Fritz Backhaus, Frankfurt am Main (in German)

The most famous Jewish family of the 19th century were the Rothschilds. With there name connected is the myth of wealth, luxury and power. Lesser known is the fact that they belonged to the pioneers of the European railway system. It was them who developed the first railroads in Austria and France. How they installed the greatest European bank (in the course of only two decades), how the contributed to the acceleration of transport of goods, people and information, how they had to fight against all kind of resistance – all this will discussed in this presentation.
