"In the same year that his Paris was published, Moï Ver - under his real name of Moshé Vorobeichic - produced Ein Ghetto im Osten (A Ghetto in the East). The book, with both Hebrew and German Text, featured his photographic record of the Jewish ghetto in the Lituanian capital of Vilnuis, documenting a way of life that would soon disappear under terrible circumstances. Even more so than Paris, ein Ghetto im Osten was ostensibly a documentary book, but as he has done in his view of the French city, Moï Ver could not resist pushing the envelope of the documentary form. Once again, he used a variety of New Vision strategies, the most obvious being to take many images from upstairs windows looking on to the narrow streets of Vilnius's old Jewish quarter. This creates odd angles and a dynamic mise en scène for his pictures of people going about their everyday business on the street...But Möi Ver didn't stop here. He also introduced cinematic cutting and montaging techniques to heighten the interest...A poignancy has been added in hindsight : it was made at the beginning of a desperately traumatic time for European Jewry." Parr/Badger, The Photobook
