<FONT COLOR="#000099">Whilst this site was originally made available for the interest of relatives interest has now extended well beyond that, and so has the content of the site. </FONT>

<font color="#000099"> The site touches on some related 4,000 families with more than 1,200 . But the site is focussed on two families (Cassirer and Cohen) of Jewish origin, beginning in a small area bounded by Schweinfurt, Dessau, Berlin, Schwientochlowitz, and Crakow. The CASSIRER family became extremely prominent in Berlin prior to World War II. The COHEN family became extremely prominent in Australia. Both made interesting intellectual, commercial and political contributions. Since the Holocaust, relatives can be found spread across the world (to see more on this click on ).</font>

<font color="#000099">The site has grown to include more than 5,600 people

    (see [[Attach:WC_TOC.HTM Δ|family
      tree]]). It gives an account of how key events - whether the Holocaust
      or transportation to the colonies - confronted and scattered them, and
      the ways they responded and rebuilt their lives across the world.  It
      includes a collection of images of original documents, including family
      trusts, photographs, and convict records amongst others.</font>

<font color="#515229"><font size="2" face="Times New Roman, Times, serif">This
      comment is primarily for indexing purposes: These pages are about a few,
      not all members of the Cassirer, Cohen and Falk families, some of them
      living for centuries in Germany. Most prominent and now most looked after
      members are the philosopher Prof. Ernst (Alfred) Cassirer (1874-1945),
      galerist Paul Cassirer (1871-1926) and publisher Bruno Cassirer (1872-1941).
      Of course it's impossible to write about any jewish family of the 19th
      and 20th century without mentioning if and how they escaped antisemitism,
      humilation and extermination. Whereas the Cohens under consideration here
      were already in Australia, the Cassirers and Falks, as families who once
      migrated from the Russian Empire (Poland) and Austrian Empire (Galicia,
      Bohemia, Hungary) to the German Empire (Prussia), lost some of their dearest
      in the Holocaust. For more information about these please look at the Yad
      Vashem site of the Jewish Holocaust Museum . The Cohen family which is
      the subject of this site escaped the Holocaust since they were already
      in Australia. The fate of the Falk family in the Shoah is less well known.
      The oppression unleashed by the Nazi regime caused the Falk and Cassirer
      family members to leave Berlin or face death. We have identified family
      members who were killed in the Holocaust. Erich Falk escaped the Holocaust
      and ended with his family in Israel. The site author is 
      Jim Falk, currently Director of the [[http://www.acsis.unimelb.edu.au| Australian
        Centre for Science, Innovation and Society]] (ACSIS) at
        the University of Melbourne.</font><font face="Times New Roman, Times, serif"><font size="2"> Details
