The below comment is of Dovid Katz, professor of Yiddish at Vilnius University (1999-2010), editor of, author of Lithuanian Jewish Culture

“Long before it was trendy, Joseph Levinson traveled up and down the Lithuanian countryside to locate and document the Holocaust-era mass grave sites of Lithuania and the country’s old Jewish cemeteries. Without his pioneering work, newcomers could not have continued the project to discover and preserve ever more sites. Levinson is the guardian of the memory of Lithuanian Jewry and this little classic occupies a unique and irreplaceable niche in the history.”
