Rothschild, Pereire, Camondo. The Jewish upper class in Paris during the 19th century

A fascinating journey throughout Paris’ history, from Napoleon Bonaparte to the World War II.

Bankers and art collectors, patrons and zionists, these families are going to remain deeply engraved in both national economy and architecture, and above all in the history of the French Judaism.

From the early 1800s, right after the foundation of the Israelite Consistory by Napoleon Bonaparte, waves of European Jewish immigrants headed France, whose freedom is enlightening the world.

Paris then became an essential European economic and artistic location, while the Jewish upper class society is moving in into brand new neighborhoods built by Baron Haussmann, such as Parc Monceau.
