MJH Live: Yiddish Humor During WWII with Professor Anna Shternshis
Can humor be a weapon? If yes, is it effective? Based on Yiddish jokes and anecdotes recorded between 1943 and 1945, this interactive lecture/seminar tells the story of what Soviet Jews found funny and why, as they lived through the darkest period of modern Jewish history in Europe. Join University of Toronto Professor of Yiddish Studies Anna Shternshis for this illuminating lecture, followed by a Q&A with viewers.
