”Natasha Solomons’ novel House of Gold chronicles the life of the Goldbaums, an influential European banking family, at the outbreak of the First World War.
The family are rich beyond belief but they discover that their wealth cannot shield them from the rampant anti-Semitism that is taking hold across the continent.
Jenni talks to Natasha about the challenges of tackling such a fraught historical period amid more recent European political turmoil and reports of anti-Semitism.”
