Information about Lecturer

Anna Kushkova, Ethnology Department, “Petersburg Judaica” Center, European University at St. Petersburg, Russia, will discuss life and culture of the shtetls (Yiddish for “little towns”) and their importance for the identity of Eastern European Jews. Using materials collected through field research conducted from 2004 through 2007 in three former shtetls in Ukraine, she will also explore how the current residents of these communities remember and document the Holocaust in narrative practices, and how their narratives are modified for different audiences—such as Jewish charity organizations, local authorities, and researchers—in the post-Soviet era.
