Defeating Hitler’s Final Solution: Preserving Yiddish Culture and Language Today
Keeping the Yiddish language alive is one of the most powerful ways to defeat Hitler’s goal of “The Final Solution”. Yiddish enables us to enter the doors of a magnificent literature and culture that helps us understand the soul of the Jewish people of pre-war Eastern Europe. Professor Riva Ginsburg will explore the history, humor, and wisdom of this language in addition to exploring where Yiddish is today and its future.
Riva Ginsburg was born in a displaced persons camp in Fahrenwald, Germany, after the Holocaust. She has taught Yiddish language and culture at Binghamton University of New York State and has taught at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. Her expertise focuses on Yiddish language and culture, Jewish Resistance and the generation after the Holocaust.
