Stolen Words: The Nazi Plunder of Jewish Books

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will present highlights from the epic story of the largest collection of Jewish books in the world – tens of millions of books that the Nazis looted from European Jewish families and institutions. Rabbi Mark Glickman, author of the recently released book, Stolen Words: The Nazi Plunder of Jewish Books, will describe the Nazis’ decision to loot the books of Jewish Europe, how they went about their plunder, and what happened to the books after the end of World War II. The story is also one of Jews’ love affair with books, with the way a modern nation-state relates to the treasures of its enemies, and how the Jewish people redefined itself in a world torn asunder by war and mass murder. This session promises to be a fascinating exploration of a largely unknown chapter in the history of the Holocaust and World War II.
