Etgar Keret: A Mother’s WWII Bedtime Stories

Hosted By: Maven

Etgar Keret’s first exposure to making up stories was his mother’s bedtime stories. Sometimes fictional, sometime real, his mother’s stories were influenced by her experience growing up in a Poland ghetto during WWII. In this deeply personal talk Keret discusses the magical childlike world of his mother, juxtaposed by the horror of the war around her. In trying to tell his mother’s stories, Keret seeks to find an understanding of the forces that had impacted his family and himself.

In March of 2020, as the pandemic took hold of our local communities and safer-at-home orders were issued, American Jewish University shifted the delivery of our adult education and community programming to digital formats. Dedicated to providing Jewish learning to our communities, AJU understood the importance of showcasing original content that was not only easily accessible, but also fostered a sense of connection amidst the isolation that many faced.
