The New York Public Library will display some rare historical items from its collection in commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance Day.
They include a 1939 Warsaw telephone directory published shortly before World War II. The Polish capital had the largest Jewish population in Europe at the time. Other items include a picture of the Warsaw ghetto soon after the 1943 uprising.
The exhibition also features a 1946 booklet for U.S. servicemen stationed in Germany during the first Pesach after the war. It compares Adolph Hitler to Paroh while Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower is compared to Moshe. The free exhibit runs through May 7 at the Fifth Avenue building.
