Sara Beth talks with Dr. David Fishman, Professor of Jewish History and Director of Project Judaica at JTS, about a tragedy that’s an 11 on a scale of one to 10. Professor Fishman describes the inspiration he’s found in the Vilna ghetto heroes of his recent book, who risked their lives daily to save artifacts from destruction, and who refused to let their tragedy define them.The Book Smugglers by David Fishman: https://www.upne.com/1512600490.htmlCover art: Aura LewisTheme music: “Jat Poure” by Blue Dot Sessions (www.sessions.blue).Funding: The Louis Finkelstein Institute for Religious & Social Studies at JTS.Contact us at [email protected], and find other JTS podcasts at www.jtsa.edu/podcasts.
