Auras

Feast your eyes on the latest addition to the library’s digital projects page. A visual treat and a historic artifact, the Memorbuch is an example of the renaissance of the art of manuscript decoration in Central Europe in the 18th century.  The Memorbuch was written and illustrated by Binyamin Ze’ev (Wolff Jacob) of Kempen in Breslau in 1765.  It was dedicated in the neighboring community of Auras in 1803.
