Celebration of Gift of a Holocaust Sefer Torah to VCU Libraries

Join us for a celebration of this generous donation. Beginning in the lobby of the library, the scroll will be paraded through the building to the accompaniment of a klezmer band. We will then arrive at the library lecture hall (room 303) and have brief remarks.: This Torah scroll, on parchment scribed in the customary Hebrew, was composed in Romania around 1750. During World War II, it was confiscated by the Nazis. It is believed to be from an area of Transnistria, known as the Romanian Auschwitz. It was repatriated to Israel in 2003. Israeli authorities released the scroll for private ownership, and the scroll was then presented to VCU Libraries by alumni Martin L. Johnson, M.D., and Olinda Young, to be held and safeguarded by VCU Libraries’ Special Collections and Archives.
