Description
The premiere national Jewish newspaper Forverts, first published in 1897, here mines its rarely seen archives to reveal a pageant of international Jewish life in 531 black and white photographs. From shtetl beauty contests and matchmakers caught mid-deal in the Old Country to the Lower East Side pushcarts, Yiddish theater, and labor rallies of the New World, this is a kaleidoscopic panorama of the 20th century. Here are diaspora communities and Palestine during the British mandate; images of the Holocaust, the Soviet Jewry movement, and the emergence of Jewish suburbia; and personalities from Paul Muni and Barbra Streisand to Woody Allen and Madonna.

"Here is what it looked like, and how it felt, to be a Jew in the 20th Century."—Nicole Krauss
