Elie Borowski: Founder of the Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem

 

The story of Dr. Elie Borowski's life has now been presented in a new book edited by Sir John Boardman.

The story is told through edited interviews with Elie and his wife Batya.  Elie describes his life of scholarship and collecting, but also the massacre of his family in Poland and his internment in Switzerland, and finally the moving of his remarkable collection of antiquities to Canada, thence  to Jerusalem and the creation there of the Bible Lands Museum, now celebrating Its 25th anniversary.

It is an epic tale of courage and scholarship.
