Review
"The gentle moments Vishniac's camera captured are haunting."--"Columbus Dispatch

From the Inside Flap
"Vishniac came back from his trips to Eastern Europe in the 1930s with a collection of photographs that has become an important historical document, for it gives a last-minute look at the human beings he photographed just before the fury of Nazi brutality exterminated them. Vishniac took with him on this self-imposed assignment--besides this or that kind of camera and film--a rare depth of understanding and a native son's warmth and love for his people. The resulting photographs are among photography's finest documents of a time and place."--Edward Steichen

"Not to forget, not to allow oblivion to defeat memory: That is his obsession. Defying all dangers, surmounting all obstacles, he travels from province to province, from village to village, capturing slums and markets, a gesture here, a movement there, reflections of hope and despair, so that the victims will not wholly vanish into the abyss--so that they will live on, past torture and past massacre. And he has won the wager: They live still."--Elie Wiesel
