As World War II raged through Europe, a group of Soviet Yiddish scholars embarked on an ambitious goal to preserve Jewish culture of the 1940s.
This Thursday, August 23rd at 9pm ET on The New Classical FM we broadcast Yiddish Glory: The Lost Songs of World War II. This radio documentary from Dan Rosenberg features newly discovered Yiddish songs written in the Soviet Union by those who lived during the darkest chapter in modern Jewish history.
Find out how the songs were lost and then rediscovered by a University of Toronto professor, learn about their authors, their history, and hear the haunting and defiant music.
