Fishman of The Jewish Theological Seminary. This lecture, hosted by the Tam Institute for Jewish Studies at Emory University, will be conducted virtually via Zoom. 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. Registration required. + Online Campus Events
