"Yiddish Glory is a product of collaboration between historian Anna Shternshis (University of Toronto), artist Psoy Korolenko (Moscow- New York), and Toronto-based producer Dan Rosenberg. It features anti-fascist songs and music documenting Nazi atrocities that were discovered in a former Soviet archive in the Vernadsky National Library of Ukraine. The songs have been resurrected by Yiddish Glory in a jaw-dropping new recording of music written by Holocaust victims and survivors in the Soviet Union during World War II.” (yiddishglory.com)
This performance has been seen around the world and has also been nominated for a Grammy Award. Now, it comes to the College on November 10 as part of the Neilsen Lecture Series in Judaic Studies!
All events in the Neilsen Lecture Series in Judaic Studies are free and open to the public. These events bring Jewish scholars, dignitaries, and public figures to campus to speak about tolerance, diversity, history, culture, and current events. They are made possible by the generosity of the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation.
