Sutzkever Essential Prose

Thursday, April 22, 2021 1 PM Online
Join us for a conversation in celebration of Sutzkever Essential Prose, a new book that brings the largely unknown prose of seminal Yiddish poet Avrom Sutzkever to English readers in new translations by Zackary Sholem Berger. In these works, Sutzkever blurs the lines between fiction, memoir, and poetry; between real and imagined; between memory and metaphor. He offers haunting scenes drawn from a vast imagination and the unique life he lived, from his youth in Siberia and Vilna, to his trauma as a partisan fighter and a survivor of the Holocaust, to his post-war life as a Yiddish poet in Israel.
