A Vanished World

Review
I hesitated to read & look at this pictorial view of Europe's Jews in the 1930's, just before most of them were extinguished by Hitler. Includes photos of the Warsaw ghetto and other Jewish areas, & descriptions of what happened to the Jews when they were forced out of work & forced into smaller & smaller areas to live. The author/ photographer describes the people & places in his photos, all of which were taken by a hidden camera, risking his own life by taking them. He often captured a moment with his camera, then approached the person to ask about their circumstances. He became good friends with some of these people. He took 16,000 photos of what he realized was a vanishing world. All but 2000 of his pictures were destroyed. A poignant book that should be seen and read, so the world will never forget.

Review
This book grabbed my attention from the 1st page, & I couldn't wait to read the rest. Two sisters leave Ireland for the United States in 1957. Their lives change significantly, & the book follows them in the past & the present. An excellent read.
