Yiddish Glory: The Lost Songs of World War II , Seuss Room, Geisel Library, Wednesday, 15. April 2020

The Lou Dunst Memorial Lecture
Presented by the UC San Diego Holocaust Living History Workshop
Please join the UC San Diego Jewish Studies Program and UC San Diego Library for a joint presentation by Anna Shternshis and Psoy Korolenko on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 from 5-7 p.m. in the Seuss Room at Geisel Library. This event is free and open to the public.
At the height of World War II, a team of Soviet scholars embarked on an ambitious goal to collect recently written songs addressing the Holocaust. Lost until the early 1990s, these songs were rediscovered and recorded with an ensemble of recognized soloists. Thanks to the painstaking labor of Anna Shternshis and the talent of PsoyKorolenko, audiences worldwide can now enjoy and reflect upon this treasure trove of songs that offer a precious glimpse into an unfolding tragedy and the artistic reaction to it. Shternshis is the Al and Malka Green Professor of Yiddish and Diaspora Studies at the University of Toronto. Korolenko is a prominent singer-songwriter and a philologist who holds a Ph.D. in Russian literature. In 2018 their joint project Yiddish Glory was nominated for a Grammy.
