From the book reviews:

“The book is a companion publication to an international exhibition with the same name as the title of the book. … It is divided into ten sections, corresponding to the ten sections of the exhibition. … The reviewer recommends the book under review for all university libraries, as well as for those individuals who have an interest in either mathematicians in modern Germany or Jewish mathematicians.” (Henry E. Heatherly, Mathematical Reviews, May, 2014)

“This is the English translation and extension of a German catalogue … . The main goal is to remind scientists and an interested broader public of the fact that mathematical life in pre-1933 Germany was to a considerable extent German-Jewish mathematical life, before it was destroyed by the Nazis. … gives literature for further study and important stimuli both for the memory of an irretrievable past and for a discussion of conclusions for the future interface between mathematics and society and culture at large.” (Reinhard Siegmund-Schultze, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1234, 2012)
