The Encyclopedia of Jewish Life Before and During the Holocaust represents the fruit of more than three decades of labor at Yad Vashem. Based on a thirty-volume encyclopedia published only in Hebrew, this accessible edition reclaims in illustrations and prose the distinctive culture lost during the Holocaust and makes this invaluable resource available in English for the first time. The encyclopedia features more than 6,500 communities, clarifies precise locations of settlements, traces their development, and shares small details of everyday life; 600 photographs and illustrations; 17 pages of maps; chronology; glossary; complete bibliography; indexes of communities and personalities. Winner of the 2001 Reference Book Award from the Association of Jewish Libraries.
