About the Book

"Between 1935 and 1938 the celebrated photographer Roman Vishniac explored the cities and villages of Eastern Europe, capturing life in the Jewish shtetlekh of Poland, Romania, Russia, and Hungary, communities that even then seemed threatened. Using a hidden camera and under difficult circumstances, Vishniac was able to take over sixteen thousand photographs, many of which survived the war.

With the publication of Children of a Vanished World, seventy of these photographs are available, thirty-six for the first time. The book is devoted to a subject Vishniac especially loved, and one whose mystery and spontaneity he captured with particular poignancy: children."--BOOK JACKET. "The photographs are accompanied by a selection of nursery rhymes, songs, poems, and chants for children's games both in Yiddish and in English translation."--BOOK JACKET.
