Roman Vishniac provided to the world memorable and poignant photographs of Jewish life in Eastern Europe taken in the years immediately before World War 11 and the Holocaust.  These photos, many of which are reprinted in the text, A Vanished World, have come to influence how the American public perceives Jewish life in Poland in the interwar period. Academy award winning cinematographer,  Janusz Kaminski, had this collection in mind when he filmed the noteworthy scenes in the movie, Schindler’s List. Using the Vishniac photos as a starting point, Nova Southeastern University’s Associate Professor, Stephen Ross Levitt, will address the question of the legal, political, religious, and economic circumstances of Jews in Poland between the wars.  Pending time, Levitt will also consider some of Vishniac’s photos that illustrate life in Berlin during the 1920s and 1930s as well as immediately after World War 11.
