Abstract

Noether, Hermann Cohen (the philosopher), Issai Schur, Max Planck, among others. Fraenkel did his doctorate at Recollections of Marburg, publishing his thesis, ‘‘On zero divisors and decomposition of rings,’’ in Crelle’s Journal in 1914. He did aJewish his work for the habilitation in Breslau, although the habilitation itself, an extension of his doctoral work on Mathematician rings, was submitted to Marburg. Fraenkel served as a medic in the war (1914–1918). He in Germany describes some of his various tasks, notes the difficulty of by Abraham A. Fraenkel; edited by maintaining a kosher diet, mentions that he almost died of dysentery, and much else. Though nothing like the Holo- Jiska Cohen-Mansfield caust, WWI was hard on Jews. Often, especially on the BASEL: BIRKHAUSER, 2016, XX + 234 PP., US$ 89.99, ISBN 978-3-319- eastern front, local officials or advancing armies expelled 30845-6 Jews. This greatly distressed Fraenkel and prompted him to think seriously about Zionism and the future of Judaism. REVIEWED BY JAMES ROBERT BROWN The only good thing about war is that between periods of stark terror there are often significant intervals of free time. During such periods Fraenkel wrote an elementary book on set theory, published in 1919. This
