"In this magnificent collection by one of the great photographers of this century, the lost world of Eastern Europe's Jewish communities once again comes to life. Between 1936 and 1939, Roman Vishniac traveled through the Jewish settlements of Carpathian Ruthenia, Slovakia, and Poland, passionately documenting a rich and vital culture that would soon cease to exist."--Dust jacket.
