Yiddish literature grappled with the questions the Holocaust raised for the Jews and the wider world. How did they understand what was happening? What did it mean to be “the chosen people?” Were the promises of the Enlightenment—liberty, equality, fraternity—now at an end for Jews? In this lecture, Dr. Anita Norich will discuss a range of Yiddish literary responses to these questions in an online Zoom Webinar.
Date: Tuesday, June 16, 2020
Time: 7 p.m.
