Regina's book list

Regina Kopilevich led an amazing 3 1/2 hour tour of the little and big ghettos in Vilna. It was a whirlwind, with layer upon layer of cultural and humanitarian history. We got a sense of how Vilnius earned its reputation as the center of the universe of jewish intellectual life. A birthplace of writers and musicians (Jascha Heifetz) and also a place sought out by famous writers including Dostoyevsky. Pushkin, Gunther Grass. Home of two early printing presses brought from Rome.

I was very happy to meet Regina because she was active in the Keidan Jewish cemetery project to translate and document names.
