A Lecture with Professor Anna Shternshis

November 4, 2018. Tamari Hall, Lipa Green Centre, Toronto.

In her lecture, Professor Shternshis discusses her discovery of previously unknown material in Russian archives unsealed after 70 years about the Holocaust in Soviet-occupied territory. Most intriguing is the Yiddish music created by women and children in Soviet Central Asia, as well as in German-occupied Ukraine.
