Kariv's engaging pictorial memoir notes: "Most of the Jews in the cities and towns of Lithuania were plain working people, engaged in the many trades and crafts that provided the necessities of daily life...They were millers, bakers, tailors, harness-makers, plasterers, glaziers, blacksmiths, wagon drivers and porters..."

A "Shtetl" was a small, rural town or village in 19th century Eastern Europe in which Jewish communities lived separate from the mainstream population. In spite of the poverty and low status of most shtetlakh (pl.), Jewish culture flourished there. Baruch Mairantz reflects this vibrancy in his sculptures of individual and street life.
