Conference Proceeding: Non-Kosher Shelves: An Insight into the Literary Offerings of Jewish Public Libraries in Interwar Poland

Nowadays, when many Jewish book collections and libraries from the interwar period no longer exist, printed catalogues are the only remaining sources which enable us to reconstruct their contents and make it possible to study reading preferences of their founders, owners and users. In her presentation, Monika will analyze the content of a few survived printed catalogues of Jewish public libraries in Poland and present the literary offer they had for a Jewish reader.
