In this final episode of the second series of Treasures from the Rabbi’s Library, Rabbi Dunner concludes his survey of material relating to Rabbi Ahron of Belz and his escape from Nazi-occupied Europe, and then goes on to display a fascinating range of photographs of rabbinic luminaries from his collection.
