<<A Complete Set of the Historic She’eirith Hapleitah Shas. >> This edition of the Talmud was published, with Herculean efforts, by the American Military Command together with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee in Germany, soon after the Liberation of Europe from Nazi tyranny. It was dedicated to the United States Army “[who] played a major role in the rescue of the Jewish people from total annihilation.” See A.J. Karp, Library of Congress Catalogue pp. 52-5 (illustrated) for details of this monumental publishing feat, produced under extraordinary historic circumstances.
