⫷ Easy reader  ✓ Outwitting History: The Amazing Adventures of a Man Who Rescued a Million Yiddish Books  ❡ By Aaron Lansky ⇸ ⫷ Easy reader ✓ Outwitting History: The Amazing Adventures of a Man Who Rescued a Million Yiddish Books ❡ By Aaron Lansky ⇸ Lansky was a 23 year old graduate student in 1980 when he came up with an idea that would take over his life and change the face of Jewish literary culture He wanted to save Yiddish books With few resources save his passion and ironlike determination, Lansky and his fellow dreamers traveled from house to house, Dumpster to Dumpster saving Yiddish books wherever they could find themeventually gathering an improbable 1.5 million volumes, from famous writers like Sholem Aleichem and I.B Singer to one of a kind Soviet prints In his first book, Lansky charmingly describes his adventures as president and founder of the National Yiddish Book Center, which now has new headquarters at Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass To Lansky, Yiddish literature represented an important piece of Jewish cultural history, a link to the past and a memory of a generation lost to the Holocaust Lansky s account of salvaging books is both hilarious and moving, filled with Jewish humor, conversations with elderly Jewish immigrants for whom the books evoke memories of a faraway past, stories of desperate midnight rescues from rain soaked Dumpsters, and touching accounts of Lansky s trips to what were once thriving Jewish communities in Europe The book is a testimony to his love of Judaism and literature and his desire to make a difference in the world Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Lanskys quarter century quest not only helped keep Yiddish literature from slipping into history, but also provided him with plenty of terrific material for his first book Granted, a story about collecting old volumes in an obscure language initially sounds less than thrilling But thanks to Lanskys storytelling skills, this memoir lives up to the amazing adventures advertised in its title its quickly clear why hes been dubbed the Yiddish Indiana Jones and the Otto Schindler of Yiddish literature Lanskys recounting of his personal mission may come off as self aggrandizing to a few readers But most will likely view the book as a great tale filled with memorable anecdotes and a rich cast of characters who reflect the endangered culture theyre trying to save Copyright 2004 Phillips Nelson Media, Inc.
