PUBLIC LECTURE

Vilna, the “Jerusalem of Lithuania” was a very special city, and the birthplace of the Jewish Socialist Bund. No other Jewish community in Eastern Europe inspired so many poems and stories. Religion and worldliness, Hebrew and Yiddish, tradition and modernity, all came together in this lovely, Jewish city.
