Exhibition curated by Sem C. Sutter, Bibliographer for French, Germanic, and Italian Languages and Literatures.

Born in Munich in 1904, Ludwig Rosenberger left Germany in 1924 and spent four years in Palestine before immigrating to the United States. This exhibition explores the ways in which Rosenberger's life and reading shaped his vision as a collector of books and other materials portraying the history of the Jews. Sem Sutter, bibliographer for French, Germanic and Italian Languages and Literatures, curated the exhibition, which was organized in conjunction with "Building Collections," the Regenstein Library's twenty-fifth anniversary exhibition.
