Moi Ver (Moshé Raviv-Vorobeichic). Ein Ghetto im Osten (Wilna). Zürich : Orell Füssli, 1931

“The book with both Hebrew and German text, featured his photographic record of the Jewish ghetto in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, documenting a way of life that would soon disappear under terrible circumstances (…) He combined elements of imagery, sometimes by double-printing negatives, sometimes by repeating identical or similar pictures, sometimes by pasting different photographs together, often with self-conscious free-form edges. Strangely, all this modernist-formalist tinkering does not detract from the book’s documentary value.”
