$18 - $25

The Sisterhood of Har Zion Temple and the Jane Fishman Grinberg Religious School present Open A Book…Open Your Mind

Dr. David Fishman, professor of Jewish History at the Jewish Theological Seminary, with a Ph.D. from Harvard University, will visit the Main Line to speak about his newest book, The Book Smuglers: Partisans, Poets, and the Race to Save Jewish Treasures from the Nazis. It recounts the nearly unbelievable story of Vilna ghetto residents who rescued thousands of rare books and manuscripts by hiding them on their bodies, burying them in bunkers, and smuggling them across borders.
