Help LBI keep the past present with a financial donation or by contributing historical materials.
From engravings depicting Jewish life in German lands in the 16th century to abstract works by German-Jewish émigrés in the second half of the 20th century, LBI's art catalog complements the archival and library collections as a visual record of German-Jewish History.
LBI presents the year 1938 through the eyes of Jews, whose personal documents detail their experiences and the hardships they suffered as well as the diminishing hope for Jews in Germany and Austria.
The LBI is located at the Center for Jewish History on the north side of 16th Street between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue.
