The Pierce Street Gallery
in Birmingham will open a
month-long exhibition to-
morrow of 35 prints from
the 16,000 photographs
taken by Dr. Roman Vis-
hniac of Eastern European
Jewry before the Holocaust.
Dr. Vishniac was a
speaker at the Jewish
Community Center's Book
Fair in November. Of the
16,000 photographs he took
between 1936 and 1939,
only 2,000 negatives sur-
vived World War II.
His photographs, now
published in book form,
include pictures of
Jewish life in the villages
and cities, at homes, in
synagogues and heders.
Now 87, Dr. Vishniac con-
tinues to lecture widely on
Eastern European Jewry
and the Holocaust. The ex-
hibition of his prints will be
at the gallery, 217 Pierce,
through Feb. 18. Gallery
hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m.,
Wednesday through Satur-
day.

The Greek and Arab sci-
ences were first intro-
duced to Europe by Jewish
scholars from Spain.
