Photographer
Roman Vishniac

Photographer Roman
Vishniac, whose photographs
of Jewish life in Europe before
the Holocaust immortalized a
vanished world, died Monday.
He was 92.
Vishniac was born in St.
Petersburg (now Leningrad),
in 1897. Trained as a
biologist, he was known in
the world of science and
photography as a micro-
photographer, taking pictures
of microscopic forms of life.
But it was his work as the
Jewish photographer that
garnered him a lasting place
in the pantheon of chroniclers
of Jewish life in Eastern
Europe, before it was
decimated by the Holocaust.
He took about 16,000
photographs between 1932
and 1939.
He made his way through
Poland, Lithuania, Latvia,
Germany, Hungary, Romania
and Czechoslovakia, with the
express purpose of immor-
talizing Jewish life. Frequent-
ly using a hidden camera, he
photographed Jews in the
cities and tiny shtetls.
Vishniac recorded the vi-
sions of poor and persecuted
Jews as his way of preserving
their lives for posterity. He
once said, "I was unable to
save my people — only their
memory."
He took pictures of Nazi
demonstrations in Germany
and preserved as proof
photographs of Jewish vic-
tims of the Nazis. To avoid
suspicion, he often dressed as
a Nazi to take the pictures.
