Aaron Bernstein (1812–1884)

Bernstein, Aaron (bern’sīn). A German publicist and novelist (1812–84); born at Dantzic. He was in politics a radical and in religion a reformer, and his life was a continued battle against obscurantism and conservatism. Yet he wrote some charming stories of life among the Jews, among them ‘Mendel Gibbor’ (1860). He wrote also some notable historical sketches, as ‘The People’s Years’ and ‘The Years of Reaction.’
