The Paper Bridge. Cultural resistance in the Vilna Ghetto. Current exhibit at Center for Jewish History, NYC
Zelig Kalmanovitch, Avrom Sutzkever and Shmerke Kaczerginski, among others, risked their lives for rare Jewish books and other artifacts central to Jewish culture. Between 1941-1943, these poets and intellectuals smuggled countless documents out of the Strashun library and the YIVO building in Vilna.
