Yiddish Paris: Creating a Jewish Nation Between Two World Wars
How did Yiddish culture become the basis for Jewish life in France during the 1920s and 1930s? How did Jewish emigrants from communist, socialist, and other backgrounds come together in Paris to create a new type of diasporic Jewish nationalism through theater troupes, choruses, and a pavilion at the 1937 World’s Fair, insisting on the ability of Jews to retain their distinctive identity even in a French state known for demanding the assimilation of immigrant and minority groups? Join Professor Nick Underwood (Berger-Neilsen Chair of Judaic Studies at the College of Idaho and recipient of a PhD from the University of Colorado Boulder) and Professor Elias Sacks (Director of the Program in Jewish Studies at CU Boulder) as they explore these questions and celebrate Underwood’s new book, "Yiddish Paris: Staging Nation and Community in Interwar France" (2022).
