Fishman’s book — The Book Smugglers: Partisans, Poets, and the Race to Save Jewish Treasures from the Nazis — tells the heroic, little known story about a group of poets and partisans known as the “Paper Brigade,” living in the Vilna Ghetto, who worked to save Jewish books and Jewish culture from Nazi destruction.
