"Vilna—A Jewish Commun-
ity in Times of Glory and in
Time of Destruction," an ex-
hibit which the Yivo Institute
for Jewish Research opened last
March in New York, has at-
tracted widespread attention
and large audiences, the Insti-
The aim of the YIVO is to
present to the American public
the unique a n d distinctive
character of the Eastern Euro- -
pean Jewish community.
More than 500 years of Jew-
ish life in Vilna played a lead-
ing role in the spiritual, eco-
nomic and social life of the
Jews in Eastern Europe. Vilna
was a city in which Jewish
ideologies took shape and as
such, it played a leading role
in the development of the Zion-
ist movement and a pioneer
role in the history of the Jewish
It was also a key center of
Yiddish literature and Yiddish
press, and was the home of the
Yiddish Scientific Institute,
YIVO, and a center of secular
and religious schools.
This was the important role
of Vilna, often called the "Jeru-
salem of Lithuania," from the
beginning of the 15th century
until Sept. 1944 when the last
semblance of Jewish life was
destroyed by the Nazis.
In the exhibition are shown
more than 1,000 documents,
paintings and memorabilia pre-
senting a panorama of Jewish
Vilna over a period of five cen-
turies. The exhibit will con-
tinue to be open ' throughout
the summer months at the
YIVO building on Fifth Avenue
and 86th Street in New York.
