About this Item

Quarto. XXV, 400pp. Original publisher's blue stiff paper covered boards with gold lettering on front cover and spine. The YIVO Institute for Jewish Research was founded in 1925 in Vilna as a center for scholarship on East European Jewish history, Yiddish language, and culture. The New York branch of YIVO, established in 1926, became the institute's new home during World War II when Vilna fell under Nazi rule.From the beginning, the New York YIVO Archives collected materials pertaining to Jewish life both in Eastern Europe and in the United States. In the decades after the war the archives undertook a series of initiatives to document Jewish life under the Nazis, life in pre-war Europe, the period of the displaced persons camps and the Jewish experience in the United States from the time of mass immigration. YIVO has also worked continuously to relocate and restore the pre-war YIVO Vilna library and archives. The archives now houses such diverse collections as records of the Vilna Kehillah, the American Jewish Committee, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, the Jewish Labor Bund, the Workmen's Circle, and over 700 landsmanshaftn; papers of Simon Dubnow, Max Weinreich, Horace Kallen, Abraham Cahan, Jacob Glatstein, and Maurice Schwartz; rabbinical manuscripts; photographs by Roman Vishniac, Alter Kacyzne, and Menakhem Kipnis; art works by Shloyme Yudovin, Enrico Glicenstein, Abraham Manievich, and Abbo Ostrowsky; films; posters, sound recordings; and more. Very minor rubbing and soiling to boards and spine. Binding in overall very good, interior in near to fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 24252
