FishmanEvent Open To: All (Public)Cost: FreeContact Name: Danielle PitroneContact Email: dpitron@emory.eduOn March 19 at 7:30 pm, Emory's annual Tenenbaum Lecture will explore "The Book Smugglers of the Vilna Ghetto: A Story of Spiritual Resistance," with guest scholar David E. Fishman of The Jewish Theological Seminary. In Vilna, the city Jews called “The Jerusalem of Lithuania,” a group of ghetto inmates risked their lives to rescue thousands of rare books, documents, and works of art from the Nazis. In an operation that lasted eighteen months, they smuggled the materials past guards and buried them in bunkers. Those members of the group who survived the War returned to Vilna after the city’s liberation and dug up the materials. They eventually smuggled the books across Europe until they reached the United States and Israel. What did they rescue, and why did they do it? This event is free and open to the public. Please join us for a reception following the lecture. Copies of David E. Fishman’s book, The Book Smugglers: Partisans, Poets, and the Race to Save Jewish Treasures from the Nazis, will be available for purchase. + Oxford Presentation Room, Oxford Road Building<br>1390 Oxford Road, Atlanta GA 30322 Campus Events
