Playing cards made from desecrated Torah scrolls.
Germans and Lithuanian “partisans” also targeted Jewish religious institutions and cultural treasures. In the early days of the war, many of Kovno’s synagogue and houses of learning were ransacked and destroyed. Torah scrolls, the most revered writings in the Jewish religion, were desecrated. Often the parchment scrolls were reused for mundane purposes.
