From the Vilna Ghetto to Nuremberg

A discussion of the ghetto memoir (1946) and testimony of Sutzkever, one of the great Yiddish poets to emerge from the Holocaust. Why was the memoir ignored by critics and even by the author himself for so long? And why should we look anew at early post-liberation efforts to document events that established a foundation for both justice and collective memory?

Join Prof. Justin Cammy (Smith College, USA) for a discussion of Sutzkever's text, available for the first time in his award-winning English translation.
