Film, Music and Literature

Aftereffects: The Representation of the Holocaust, its Universal Moral Implications and the Transgenerational Transformation of the Trauma, based on the Israeli documentary film ‘Oy Mama’. Liat Steir-Livny examines the claims that the Holocaust shaped the identity of the second and third generation of Jews born after WWII.

Seekers of Happiness: Jews and Jazz in the Soviet Union. Victoria Khiterer explores the contribution of Jewish composers, singers and musicians to the popularization of jazz in the Soviet Union.

Casting a Shadow Backwards and Forwards: The Para-Holocaust Fiction of Charles Reznikoff, Isaac Bashevis Singer, and Bernard Malamud. Jacek Partyka reconsiders critical reception of three historical novels by Bernard Malamud, Isaac Bashevis Singer and Charles Reznikoff in the light of Alvin H. Rosenfeld’s assertion that “all novels about Jewish suffering written in the post-Holocaust period must implicate the Holocaust, whether it is expressly named or not” (A Double Dying, 1980: 68).

Fighting for the Rosenbergs. The Polish Staging of Leon Kruczkowski’s Play ‘Julius and Ethel’. Leon Kruczkowski was one of the few Polish writers to publicly protest about the treatment of Jewish people by the Polish Government in the years preceding World War II. Barry Keane analyses his play as an exploration into, and assessment of, the events and circumstances which led to the arrest and subsequent execution of the Rosenbergs. He also endeavors to illustrate how the reception of the play in Poland ignited discussion about the place and role of Jewish writers and intellectuals in post-war Poland.
