Stolen Books: Recovering Our Family's Legacy

Date: Wednesday, December 7, 2022
Time: 1:00 pm EST
Location: Zoom
Speakers: Adam Krupnick
Belf library

The Belf family ran a book store and publishing company in the late 19th and early 20th century until the Nazi invasion. From a mainstay of the Viennese Jewish community – supplying books for holiday rites, history, liturgy, and children’s literature, the story of the Belf family echoes the experience of so many other Jewish proprietors and entrepreneurs during the war. In this session, Adam Krupnick, the spouse of a Belf family member, will discuss his remarkable experience researching the Belf family and recovering looted items from the Belf book store, as well as the great work he has accomplished during his collaboration with Monika Schreiber at the University of Vienna Jewish Studies Library.
