Yiddish Glory - Lost and Found Songs of Soviet Jews during World War II

Wednesday, February 21, 2018,
  • Location: Sarrat Student Center - Cinema

Program in Jewish Studies Lecture Series

Talk description:

Singer-songwriter Psoy Korolenko (Moscow - New York) and historian Anna Shternshis (University of Toronto) bring to life “lost” Yiddish songs of the World War II in this all-new concert and lecture program. Collected by Moisei Beregovsky and other scientists of the Kiev Cabinet for Jewish Culture, these previously unknown Yiddish songs were confiscated and hidden by the Soviet government in 1949, and have only recently come to light. The lecture/concert  features the performance and incredible stories behind these treasures.

Co-sponsored by the Max Kade Center for European Studies.
