“Roman Vishniac’s photographs are some of the most well-known images of pre-war Jewish life in Europe. Now, an extensive archive of his six decades of work is available online, the fruits of a partnership between the International Center for Photography,  which holds the Vishniac archive, and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial  Museum.

According to a statement from the Museum, the digitized archive includes all of Vishniac’s 9,000 negatives—most of which have never before been printed or published”, – writes Stephanie Butnick:
