“[T]he Vilna Almanac is more a document of achievements- of its rich political, communal and cultural life and growth- than a dry account of its troubles and humiliations. The reason being the well-known ‘Litvak’ endurance, belief and constructive daily work ethic. There once was a large community of 60,000 Jews, living on Polish- Lithuanian land; now Vilna is only a place in Jewish memory” (from English foreword). SUBJECT(S): Jews -- Lithuania -- Vilnius. Almanacs, Yiddish. Juifs -- Lituanie -- Vilnious. Almanachs yiddish. Ethnic relations. OCLC: 28634787. Ex-library with usual marks, spine wear at label, otherwise Very Good Condition. (YIZ-22-10B).
