Wednesday, May 11, 2022 - 9:00am to Wednesday, August 31, 2022 - 5:00pm

UCLA Library's International & Area Studies Department presents a digital exhibit that tells the story of six Judaica books that were looted by Nazis during World War II and rediscovered decades later at UCLA. The exhibit contextualizes the books' histories, investigates their international journey from Europe to the United States, and documents the library's process for returning the books to their rightful stewards at the Jewish Museum in Prague, Czech Republic.
