“From Pogroms to ‘Fiddler’: American Jews Remember the Old Country”
Sunday, January 26 ~ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
How did the image of the Old Country filled with poverty and violence turn into a romanticized vision of a world of tradition, family, and song? We will briefly look at how succeeding generations of Jews in America looked at the eastern Europe shtetl from the first generation of immigrants at the turn of the twentieth century to their grandchildren and great-grandchildren in the present day.
No charge. Everyone welcome.
