Best known for his pre-World War II images of Jews in Eastern Europe, Russian-born photographer Roman Vishniac (1897-1990) left behind a body of work that carries great artistic and historical significance. Tonight at 6:30, the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue (600 I St. NW ) will display photographs taken in Berlin between 1920 and 1939 that have never been seen in America. The opening reception will include remarks by German Ambassador Klaus Scharioth and Aubrey Pomerance, chief archivist of the Jewish Museum of Berlin. The exhibition will be on view through June 27. Call 202/408-3100 or visit www.sixthandi.org.
