ABOUT Bridge of Books

“A Bridge of Books” is an engaging, often funny documentary film produced by Sam Ball for the National Yiddish Book Center. It chronicles the adventures of an enterprising 23-year-old named Aaron Lansky, who rallied together an international network of volunteers and set out to rescue the world’s Yiddish books. Twenty years and 1.5 million Yiddish books later, he has helped save a rich, diverse, and surprisingly modern literature from oblivion.
