Bridge of Books

Yiddish Book Center Oct 25, 2011

The Story of the Yiddish Book Center: This engaging, often funny documentary chronicles the adventures of an enterprising 23-year-old named Aaron Lansky, who rallied together an international network of volunteers and set out to rescue the world’s Yiddish books. More than thirty years later, the Yiddish Book Center has rescued more than a million Yiddish books and helped save a rich diverse, and surprisingly modern literature from oblivion. A Bridge Of Books celebrates a pursuit that has become a powerful vehicle for the transmission of history, culture and identity across several generations.
