About this collection

The Memorbuch from Auras (Silesia/Schlesien), Germany (now: Uraz, Slask, Poland), a community twelve miles northwest of Breslau (now: Wroclaw, Poland) is similar to others in its content, but it is noteworthy for its illuminations rendered in the Rococo style. These pen and ink illustrations, with occasional gilding, were apparently drawn by the scribe of the manuscript, Binyamin Ze’ev (Wolff Jacob) ben Elyakum Getsel Kats of Kempen, who completed the work in Breslau in July 1765.
