We were treated to a virtual tour of the vanished Jewish world before the mass migrations of the early 20th century, as seen through never-before-shown historic stereo photographs more than a century old. These images, taken between 1860 and 1915, will be shown in actual 3-D as they were originally meant to be seen.
A Jewish universe of diversity and tradition will be revealed in its complexities and contradictions, spanning the cities of Western Europe, the shtetls of Eastern Europe and Russia, the borderlands of the Ottoman Empire, and the dusty towns of Palestine. You see what they saw, and walk with them on their migrations, through the magic of this little-known but deeply immersive form of photography.
