TITLE-The Book Smugglers:  Partisans, Poets and the Race to Save Jewish Treasures from the Nazis by David E. Fishman
SYNOPSIS-The Book Smugglers is the nearly unbelievable story of ghetto residents who rescued thousands of rare books and manuscripts―first from the Nazis and then from the Soviets―by hiding them on their bodies, burying them in bunkers, and smuggling them across borders. It is a tale of heroism and resistance, of friendship and romance, and of unwavering devotion―including the readiness to risk one’s life―to literature and art. And it is entirely true.
HOST-Barbara Wilde
FACILITATOR-Gladwyn Leiman
