The Last Bright Days is both a moving portrait of Jewish life during the 1930s in the Lithuanian shtetl of Kavarsk and the personal story of one of its inhabitants, Beile Delechky.
In 1938, with Europe on the brink of war and genocide, Beile emigrated to the United States, bringing with her hundreds of photographs and dozens of notebooks. With over one hundred compelling photographs, with Beile’s poetry and journal entries, the Last Bright Days gives us a fascinating look back to a Jewish world that was destroyed forever in the Holocaust.
