Confessions of a Yiddish Writer: The Life and Work of Chava Rosenfarb

January 10 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm EST

In this new online course, participants will learn about Chava Rosenfarb, a major Yiddish novelist, essayist, and short story writer, who was one of the few writers to compose fiction about the Holocaust in Yiddish. A survivor of Auschwitz and Bergen-Belson, her works remain essential reading on World War II-era and postwar Jewish life. This course is taught by Seb Schulman, director of special projects and partnerships at the Yiddish Book Center, and Rosenfarb’s daugther and translator, Goldie Morgentaler, and will delve into Rosenfarb’s work while considering questions of translation, literary portrayal of genocide and atrocity, and the challenges of being a woman Yiddish writer. All sessions will be held live via Zoom and recordings will be made available to registrants. No knowledge of Yiddish is required.
