Holocaust Museum Houston
The Book Smugglers
Tuesday, May. 26, 2020 – Sunday, Aug. 16, 2020
“Would you risk your life to save a book?” That is the underlying question of Holocaust Museum Houston’s new exhibition The Book Smugglers: Partisans, Poets, and the Race to Save Jewish Treasures from the Nazis, on view May 26 through August 16, 2020.
In this video, Chief Curator of Collections and Exhibitions Carol Manley gives a tour of the exhibition, sharing 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.
