Literature as Lifeline: What Were Jews Reading and Writing in the Ghettos?
Hosted By: Park Avenue Synagogue
During the Holocaust, hundreds of thousands of Jews were interned in urban prison zones known as ghettos. Reading and writing offered a form of spiritual sustenance to these communities under siege. Explore the literature that Jews passed around the ghettos – novels, poetry, religious commentary, and even dark humor – with Dr. Edna Friedberg, a JTS Fellow and a historian at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
