From the Forward: "A supreme witness, Vishniac evokes the sorrow and with love this picturesque and fascinating Jewish world he has seen engulfed by fire and darkness. Not to forget, not to allow oblivion to defeat memory: that is his obsession. Defying all dangers, surmounting all obstacles, he travels from province to province, from village to village, capturing slums and markets, a gesture here, a moment there, reflections of hope and despair, so that the victims will not wholly vanish into the abyss, so that they will live on, past torture and past massacre."

Roman Vishniac (1897-1990) was a Russian-American photographer, best known for capturing on film the culture of Jews in Central and Eastern Europe before the Holocaust. A complete archive of his work now rests at the International Center of Photography. Vishniac was a versatile photographer, an accomplished biologist, an art collector and teacher of art history. He also made significant scientific contributions to photomicroscopy and time-lapse photography. Vishniac was very interested in history, especially that of his ancestors, and strongly attached to his Jewish roots; he was a Zionist later in life. Roman Vishniac won international acclaim for his photos of shtetlach and Jewish ghettos, celebrity portraits, and microscopic biology. His book A Vanished World, published in 1983, made him famous and is one of the most detailed pictorial documentations of Jewish culture in Eastern Europe in the 1930s. Vishniac was also remembered for his humanism and respect for life, sentiments that can be seen in all aspects of his work.

This is one of the most moving books of any kind that I've ever seen, a priceless visual record of a world that no longer exists, thanks to the Nazis and their brutally efficient Holocaust. It's a world of extreme poverty--but lit from within by the extraordinary faith and devotion of the Jews who ...
