This is a great idea for a book and a great gift. For some months, I have trolled through ebay and Amazon auctions, clicking on but never buying copies of old standard and Jewish postcards. The co-author of this book has one of the largest archives of Jewish postcards and images, and he has compiled them into this amazing collection of old Shtetl and Jewish life postcards. They provide the reader with an glimpse of what the Yiddish world was like and what images people wanted to retain. In the words of Gerard Silvain, "Collecting of postcards has become the second largest type of collection in the world...More moving than any other type of collection for the Jew in search of his roots, the postcard collection is still little known by the general public.

This extraordinary book describes that place known as Yiddishland through a f a collection of postcards from many geographical and cultural corners of the world. Whether Yiddishland is real or mythical is unimportant: what is significant is that these photographs depict a place which no longer exists, but which was held together by the common thread of the Yiddish language. Each photograph is more stunning than the next with a never before seen images of the people, places and things that make up the Yiddish culture. Tears actually welled up when looking at some of these photos as I realized that this beautiful place from our pasts exists no more except here in these pages. This is a book is a great gift idea, and a must for anyone interested in photography, Yiddish culture or just plan beauty. I am so very happy that someone had the skill and courage to undergo this amazing project which speaks like a sparkling work of art.

Verified Purchase
I finally found this book at a reasonable price from this seller. It is an excellent book--a visual record of lost people. Delivery was prompt and the book was in the condition described. I would be happy to buy from this dealer again.
