Ver Vet Blaybn? (Who Will Remain?)

The Initiative in Holocaust, Genocide, Memory Studies is honored to host three incredible speakers and one incredible film on the occasion of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, 27th January, 2021, 2-4pm Central US Time, over Zoom.

From 2-3 we will screen the film Ver Vet Blaybn? (Who Will Remain?) which traces the story of the amazing Yiddish poet Avraham Sutzkever. From 3-4 we will first hear from Sutzkever’s granddaughter Hadas Kalderon, then filmmaker Christa P. Whitney, and then Sutzkever scholar Justin Cammy. After these speakers, we will open up to Q & A from the audience.
