    Through interviews with contemporary Viennese Jews and rare archival film, this video traces Jewish life in the Austrian capital, chronicling a history of alternating toleration and expulsion dating back to the tenth century. Profiling both former residents and expatriates, including Sigmund Freud, Theodore Herzl, Franz Kafka, Gustav Mahler, and Billy Wilder, as well as artists, writers and other members of today's Jewish community in Vienna, this video reveals how much Viennese and world culture owes to its Jewish citizens.
