Overview

"A feast for the eyes...bringing alive a long vanished world that's still eerily present."—Daniel Czitrom, New York Post


The premiere national Jewish newspaper has opened its never-before-seen archives, revealing a photographic landscape of Jews in the twentieth century and beyond. This extraordinary volume features classic photographs of the history one has learned to associate with the Jewish Daily Forward—Lower East Side pushcarts, Yiddish theater, labor rallies—along with gems no one would expect. The book also features essays by Leon Wieseltier, Roger Kahn, and Deborah Lipstadt, and a rousing introduction by Pete Hamill.
