Inside the Peretz Salon: The Engine Room of Modern Yiddish Culture, with David Mazower
Hosted By: Yiddish Book Center (Amherst, MA)
How did a small apartment in turn-of-the-century Warsaw—the home of writer I. L. Peretz—come to be the most formative space in modern Yiddish cultural history? That question was the starting point for our re-creation of Peretz’s Salon—one of the most popular displays in the Yiddish Book Center’s new permanent exhibition, Yiddish: A Global Culture. Join them as chief curator David Mazower takes participants on a virtual tour of Peretz’s Salon and explores the unique alchemy that occurred in the Warsaw apartment.
