About
Sit down and listen to a story. It starts a long time ago in Eastern Europe with a suitcase bound for the United States. Among the precious items inside were books written in Yiddish, the language of generations of European Jews. That suitcase never made it to its destination, but its owner did. And she inspired a man with an extraordinary mission.

Aaron Lansky never forgot the story of his grandmother's suitcase. It helped to stir in him a deep desire to save the world's Yiddish books. His quest took him on rain-soaked dumpster dives, excursions through musty basements, and tours of cramped attics.

The Book Rescuer tells the true story of how Aaron Lansky preserved culture and history. It celebrates the power of an individual to bind past and future generations through language and literature.
