Red Star Over the Shtetl - Soviet Nostalgia in the Post-Soviet Jewish Culture
Lecturer: Anna Shternshis, professor of Yiddish and Diaspora Studies at the University of Toronto
March, 4 2013
From Klezmer remixes to “Aidishe Mame” in Russian - we dove into the rich world of the Russian pop culture and explored the way Soviet past influences the modern music scene. Took a stroll down Odessa alleys and marveled at the Victory Parade in the Red Square in the company of famous Russian Jewish performers.
This event was part of the Russian Culture week at Brandeis University and was sponsored by the Brandeis-Genesis Institute for Russian Jewry and the Brandeis Russian Club. The event was made possible with a generous support of the Genesis Philanthropy Group.
