Most widely held works by Aaron Lansky
Sholem Aleichem laughing in the darkness ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A portrait of writer Sholem Aleichem, whose stories about Tevye the milkman became the basis of the Broadway musical Fiddler on the Roof. Aleichem (1859-1916) was a rebellious wordsmith who created a new genre of literature and used his remarkable humor to encapsulate the realities of the Eastern European Jewish world in the late nineteenth century. Using a rich collection of archival footage, the film recreates a time in czarist Russia when Jews were second-class citizens and frequent scapegoats in times of social and political unrest

Outwitting history : the amazing adventures of a man who rescued a million Yiddish books by Aaron Lansky( Book )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1980, a 23-year-old student named Aaron Lansky set out to rescue the world's abandoned Yiddish books before it was too late. 25 years and one and a half million books later, he's still in the midst of a great adventure. Filled with poignant and often laugh-out-loud tales from Lansky's travels across the country as he collected books from older Jewish immigrants--books their own children had no use for--Outwitting History also explores brilliant Yiddish writers and enables us to see how an almost-lost culture is the bridge between the Old World and the future
