The Picture and Price of Jewish Assimilation in Documentary and Feature Silent Film

Hosted By: YIVO

Focusing on documentaries as well as feature silent films, 2019 Jan Karski & Pola Nireńska Award recipient Professor Daniel Grinberg will analyze the changing character and perception of Jews in both the United States and Poland. This analysis will be compared with sociological theories and observations, as well as with literary presentations of the subject (I. Zangwill, A Yezierska, A Gordin). This talk will also consider the price of assimilation for Jewish communities of this period, the persistent “myth of America,” omnipresent in Yiddish culture before World War II, and anti-Semitic stereotypes and clichés popular in films of the 1920s and 1930s.
