Author Reading |
In November 1939, a group of sixty Polish-Jewish refugee authors and journalists who had managed to escape to still neutral Vilnius from recently occupied Poland clandestinely founded the Komitet tsu zamlen materialn vegn yidishn khurbn in Poyln, 1939, the "Committee to Collect Material about the Destruction of Polish Jewry 1939." It would be the earliest known Jewish collective effort in Eastern Europe to document German atrocities against Polish Jewry, preceding every other known comparable activity by roughly a year. Its archive had been lost in the depot of the Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust and Genocide in London for almost eighty years and was only recently unearthed by Miriam Schulz. Her book provides the first analysis of the genesis, agenda, activities, and achievements of the Vilnius Committee as the cradle of Jewish Shoah historiography and includes a Yiddish to German translation of the Komitet’s six bulletins.

Dance Performance |
Protestors for civil rights across the United States in the 1950-60s offered up—and sometimes sacrificed—their bodies for the greater good. By exercising their right to public assembly, under the constant threat of violence at the hands of other civilians and the state, their very bodies were both a threat and were threatened. In protest, the strength of the individual was multiplied by that of the collective; public gatherings formed composite bodies of solidarity against racial discrimination and systematized inequality. In Halt, a new solo dance piece, dancer and choreographer Jamar Roberts examines the language of the body in protest. His work will focus on what it means for human beings—the committed individual and the organized collective—to be equally the subjects of progressive change and the targets of unjust corporeal punishment. The performance will be followed by a Q&A session with Roberts.
