Holocaust Images by Soviet Jewish Photographers

University of Colorado professor David Shneer has come out with a new book, ?Through Soviet Jewish Eyes: Photography, War, and the Holocaust,? in which he introduces readers to a group of Jewish photographers whose names might be new to people in the West. These are Soviet Jews who, remarkably, took some of the most compelling and endearing photos of the Holocaust.
