Review for National Yiddish Book Center, Amherst, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a second Generation Holocaust survivor. We always spoke Yiddish in my house. Now that both my parents have passed away, The National Yiddish Book Center is my source of everything Yiddish and is available for my children and grandchildren and hopefully many future generations. The National Yiddish Book Center is a miracle by its very existence and will keep alive an amazing culture that was almost extinguished. It serves as a wonderful resource for all who are interested in researching Jewish history. Digitizing these treasures and in so doing making them available nationally and internationally is awesome. Through the Yiddish Book Center I was able to collect many Yiddish films which provided hours & hours of pleasure to my parents when they were no longer mobile. They would watch them over and over and it would remind them of their shtetl and it would serve as a point of further discussion about their past. This would not have been possible without the Book Center.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I used their resource to stimulate my parents when they were elderly and homebound.
