Documents from the Moreshet Archive
Monday, Apr. 27, 2020 – Sunday, May. 31, 2020
Dr. Daniela Ozacky Stern, Director of the Moreshet Archive in Israel, describes original documents from the Moreshet Archive that are currently on view in The Book Smugglers exhibition.
The Book Smugglers is the nearly unbelievable true story of ghetto residents who rescued thousands of rare books and manuscripts by hiding them on their persons, burying them in bunkers and smuggling them across borders. Set in Vilna, Lithuania, also known as the “Jerusalem of Lithuania” for their robust Jewish culture rich with art, music, literature, poetry, theater and opera, a small group of partisans and poets risked everything to save Jewish cultural treasures.
