Please join us for our annual Philip M & Ethel Klutznick Lecture in Jewish Civilization.

"Last Yiddish Heroes: Lost and Found Songs of Soviet Jews
during World War II"

Singer-songwriter Psoy Korolenko (Moscow - New York) and
historian Anna Shternshis (University of Toronto) bring to life
rediscovered Yiddish songs of World War II in this concert
and lecture program. Collected by Moisei Beregovsky and
other scientists at 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 program will feature performances and the
incredible stories behind these treasures.
