The Pogroms of 1918–1921 and the Onset of the Holocaust, with Jeffrey Veidlinger

Live, Online Event Recorded Via Zoom on October 14, 2021

Jeffrey Veidlinger discusses his newly released book, In the Midst of Civilized Europe, and explores how a Yiddish poet, a Yiddish linguist, a Yiddish children’s book writer, and hundreds of Yiddish-language testimonies awakened the world to the danger Jews were facing in Europe on the eve of the Holocaust.
