NO OF PAGES: 320 SUB CAT I: European Jews SUB CAT II: SUB CAT III: DESCRIPTION: This illustrated overview of Jewish life in Central and Eastern Europe from 1860 to WWII is a poignant and nostalgic portrait of the vanished European Jewish world from the ghettos and shtetls of Galicia to the worldly intelligentsia of Warsaw, Berlin, and Vienna; from the humble street peddlers and cramped religious meeting houses to the savants and cultural leaders and magnificent synagogues of the major cities. The diversity of Jewish life is presented here as never before--essays on significant aspects of Jewish culture are followed by pertinent short texts and quotations, accompanied by archival photographs with explanatory captions.NOTES: SUBTITLE: Texts and Photographs from Central Europe
