Aaron Lansky recounts the story of the Book Center's founding in A Bridge of Books, a short documentary by filmmaker Sam Ball. Rescuing a Literature In 1980, when he was a 23-year-old graduate student, Aaron Lansky stumbled upon an alarming fact: thousands of priceless Yiddish books - books that had survived Hitler and Stalin - were being discarded and destroyed. As an older generation passed on, their Jewish volumes were often thrown in the trash by children and grandchildren unable to read the language. An entire literature was on the verge of extinction.
