Talking Memory: The Last Years of Yitzhak Katzenelson
Marking Holocaust Remembrance Day
Sunday, April 24, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
Guest Speaker: Professor Samuel Kassow
Few Jewish Poets were better able to convey the horror and the anguish of the Holocaust than Yitzhak Katzenelson. Mordecai Tennebaum wrote that in the Warsaw Ghetto he became “like our brother”, someone who surpassed the great Hebrew poet Bialik”.
This talk will examine his Holocaust writings in the Warsaw Ghetto and later in the Vitel internment camp in France.
This program is in partnership with the Institute for the History of Polish Jewry and the Jewish Historical Institute.
