A Vanished World

Vishniac, Roman

New York; (1983): Farrar, Straus and Giroux. First Edition. Quarto. Signed by Vishniac. 79(1)pp. With a foreword by Elie Wiesel, with black and white photographs, Commentary on each photograph follows the preface. Roman, in his commentary ask "Why did I do it? A hidden camera to record the way of life of a people who had no desire to be captured on film may seem strange to you. Was it in same to cross into and out of countries where my life was in danger every day? Whatever the question, my answer is the same: It had to be done. I felt that the world was about to be cast into the mad shadow of Nazism and that the outcome would be the annihilation of a people who had no spokesman to record their plight....iI knew it was my task to make certain that this vanished world did not totally disappear". These photographs were taken between 1934 and 1939. Out of 16,000 photographs, he managed to rescue only 2000. Many of the photographs here have never been seen before and many of the negatives(which were sewn into his clothing when he came to the US) were printed for the first time. Bound in maroon cloth stamped in blind, spine lettering gilt. A near fine copy in very nice pictorial dust jacket with just a bit of wear to head.

A Vanished World

Vishniac, Roman

Gordonsville, Virginia, U.S.A.: Farrar Straus & Giroux, 1983. Roman Vishniac's A Vanished World is an extraordinary record of the lives of German and Eastern European Jews in the years immediately preceding the Holocaust. Vishniac, a Russian Jew, began to take photographs of village life during World War I, when Russian Jews who lived near the front were accused of being German spies and were deported to Siberia. He later moved to Germany, where he witnessed the horrible events of Kristallnacht and the anti-Jewish legislation that allowed Hitler to declare his enemies stateless and therefore unworthy of international protection. As we study Vishniac's photographs--a surviving fraction of the more than 16,000 he took--we are aware that we are seeing the faces of those soon to die, witnessing a world that has all but perished. Yet that world, of shops and schools, of busy streets and quiet farms, remains with us if only as a ghostly memory, thanks in part to Vishniac's compassionate eye. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Product Description This pictorial history of Jewish life in Germany in the 1930s before the Holocaust, shows the stories of individuals, their increasing poverty, sad wisdom and enduring love in the years leading up to World War II.
