Not Antigone’s eyniklekh: Soviet Yiddish Self-Will and Vernacular Holocaust Memory

Hosted By: The Center for Jewish History

AJS Dissertation Completion Fellow 2020/21 Miriam Schulz looks at Soviet Yiddish cultural agents who operated within the rather destructive post-Stalinist memory regime in which they found themselves and created their own vernacular Holocaust memory in Soviet situ. She will showcase this vernacular Holocaust memory by means of several distinct examples, looking primarily at the interplay of literature and Holocaust monuments, and the role of Yiddish within them.
