This video chronicles a visit to the Western Jewish Americana archives of The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life, which are currently housed in the processing facility of The Bancroft Library, by author Frances Dinkelspiel, accompanied by Alla Efimova, Francesco Spagnolo and Lara Michels.
The archives are now housed together, under the same roof, for the first time since they were created in 1967.
The Magnes team is currently selecting items for an upcoming exhibition, which will open in March of 2011 at The Bancroft Library, focused on the history of Jewish immigration from Germany to the San Francisco Bay Area in the second part of the 19th century.
