THE CONGRESS FOR JEWISH CULTURE, THE YIDDISH FORWARD, THE WORKMEN'S CIRCLE, and the JEWISH LABOR COMMITTEE
On August 12, 1952, Stalin's regime executed many of the finest Soviet Yiddish writers. Each year, on the anniversary of their executions, we remember those writers and other artists who suffered under the Soviet regime then, during other purges, and through constant repression.
Due to a technical error the video of Jonathan Brent's speech on "The Relationship Between August 12th and the Doctor's Plot" and Boris Sandler's remarks is not available. To watch the 33-minute series of short video interviews with readings in Yiddish by Soviet Yiddish writers shown at the event, please visit the Yiddish Forward's Video Channel: http://yiddish.forward.com/video.
