The Lost Library: The Legacy of Vilna's Strashun Library in the Aftermath of the Holocaust
"...a serious contribution to the history of Jewish Vilna, ....this book will be read with great interest and profit by anyone interested in Jewish or Eastern European history, Vilna/Vilnius, or the intricacies of intellectual property restoration after World War II."
—Theodore R. Weeks, The Polish Review
"Rabinowitz demonstrates a mastery of his subject...and effectively deploys the Strashun Library as a lens through which to examine wider cultural and geopolitical forces in the 19th and 20th centuries."
—John R. Hodgson, Reviews in History
"Dan Rabinowitz’s The Lost Library (Brandeis) ... reminds us that not only “of the making of many books there is no end,” but that the collecting of those books, and the stories they tell as cultural agents, is similarly endless."
—Tradition: A Journal of Orthodox Jewish Thought
