What Now? A JTS Podcast

This One Goes to Eleven—David Fishman

July 25, 2019

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.
