Through the Yiddish Looking Glass: The Art of Yiddish Children's Literature
Through the Yiddish Looking Glass features Yiddish children's book illustrations, created by artists who often contributed their work to other aspects of Yiddish culture as well, such as satirical cartoons, theater sets, and literary periodicals. The exhibit also includes "Yidishe kinder: Jewish Children and their World Before the Holocaust," a selction of toys, school notebooks, and periodicals providing viewers a glimpse into the lives of Yiddish-speaking Ashkenazi Jewish children. The exhibit is on view in the Yiddish Book Center's Brechner Gallery and Upstairs Gallery through September 2018.
Through the Yiddish Looking Glass is on loan from the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research.
This exhibit is made possible in part by the support of the Brechner family.
