    The Book Smugglers of the Vilna Ghetto: A Story of Spiritual Resistance
    Thursday, Apr 12th 7:30p to 9:00p
    David Fishman’s new book The Book Smugglers tells the nearly unbelievable story of ghetto inmates who rescued thousands of rare books and manuscripts--first from the Nazis and then from the Soviets--by hiding them on their bodies, burying them in bunkers, and smuggling them across borders. It is a tale of heroism and resistance, of friendship and romance, and of unwavering devotion to literature and art. And it is entirely true! Based on Jewish, German, and Soviet documents, including diaries, letters, memoirs, and the author’s interviews with several of the story’s participants, The Book Smugglers chronicles the daring activities of a group of poets turned partisans and scholars turned smugglers in Vilna, “The Jerusalem of Lithuania.” The Book Smugglers is winner of the 2017 National Jewish Book Award for “Holocaust”. David E. Fishman is a professor of Jewish History at The Jewish Theological Seminary, teaching courses in modern Jewish history. Dr. Fishman al
