Based on recently discovered archival documents, this lecture examines amateur Yiddish music created during the 1940s in Nazi-occupied Ukraine.
The program features songs that document atrocities, as well as the stories of individuals who created the first Jewish eyewitness accounts of the Holocaust in Ukraine through music.
Presented as part of YIDSTOCK 2021 and the Yiddish Book Center’s Decade of Discovery initiative, whose theme for 2021 is Yiddish and Social Justice.
Registration is required.
Made possible with the generous support from the Stanley R. Epstein Memorial Fund For Programs.
