  1. Thanks for this Richard!
    I haven’t looked in depth yet, have book-marked the site.
    My ancestry is in Eastern Europe and I know next to nothing about that area and that time, but have always been drawn to it.
    I’m also sure my 84 year-old friend who used to live in Sarajevo will enjoy it too.

  2. I am not Jewish, but am always fascinated by old photographs, especially the 1900 to 1939. For some reason old photos bring a chill and some kind of pleasure to me.

    Fascinating stuff.

  3. @americangoy: With Jews & seeing such images there is both the pleasure of feeling a connection to one’s history & tradition & the sadness of knowing that not only are those pictured not with us, but likely they were wiped out & their descendants never had the chance to live.

  4. The library is truly a work of art…the architecture is stunning and so graceful. I wish that I could have visited Sarajevo before the war. It is tragic how war can destroy such beauty.
