Author Name    Altshuler, David; Editor.

Title   The Precious Legacy: Judaic Treasures from the Czechoslovak State Collections.

Publisher    New York: Summit Books[1983].

Seller ID   50012s

Quarto, softbound, 288 pp. Photo. illus. Tiny rip to top of spine; otherwise, Fine. ̉The collection of the Czechoslovak State Jewish Museum in Prague is a unique resposity of historic artifacts, artistic rarities, and cultural memories. These objects document the vitality and significance of Czech Jewry, which has flourished for a millennium at the crossroads of East and West and is the oldest continuous Jewish community in Europe. One hundred fifty-three local Jewish communities in Bohemia and Moravia were devastated during the Holocaust, and thus the Prague Museum bears eloquent testimony to a world virtually snuffed out just one generation ago. This book brings to American audiences their first glimpse of this extraordinary collection of Judaica in conjuction with an exhibition that is touring our nation's major museums under the auspices of the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service."
