KIRKUS REVIEW

With a foreword by Isaac Bashevis Singer this is a remarkable collection of photographs of life in the shtetls of Poland, Lithuania, Rumania and Russia. The photographs cover the years 1860 to 1920; they depict such subjects as ritual baths, houses of study, Jewish stores and pushcarts -even a band of musicians dressed in military uniforms. A memorable memento.
