Yiddish Glory: The Lost Songs from the Holocaust with Dr. Anna Shternshis

7:00PM - 9:00PM  

Richmond Hill Central Library 1 Atkinson Street
Richmond Hill, ON

Musical Talk

In 2018, Yiddish Professor Anna Shternshis and a group of passionate musicians brought back to life Yiddish songs from the World War II that were thought to be lost. Written by Jewish Red Army soldiers and victims of Ukrainian ghettos, and lost during Stalin’s anti-Jewish purge, how are they relevant now?
Join Anna Shternshis and singer Isaac Rosenberg and learn more.

Anna Shternshis, Al and Malka Green Professor of Yiddish Studies, Director of the Anne Tanenbaum Centre for Jewish Studies, University of Toronto, author of Soviet and Kosher: Jewish Popular Culture in the Soviet Union, 1923 – 1939, and When Sonia Met Boris: An Oral History of Jewish Life under Stalin.
