About the Event

Attempting to better understand her grandfather Avrom Sutzkever,  Israeli actress Hadas Kalderon travels to Lithuania, using her  grandfather’s diary to trace his early life in Vilna and his survival of  the Holocaust. Sutzkever (1913–2010) was an acclaimed Yiddish  poet—described by the New York Times as the “greatest poet of the  Holocaust”—whose verse drew on his youth in Siberia and Vilna, his  spiritual and material resistance during World War II, and his post-war  life in the State of Israel. Kalderon, whose native language is Hebrew  and must rely on translation of her grandfather’s work, is nevertheless  determined to connect with what remains of the poet’s bygone world and  confront the personal responsibility of preserving her grandfather’s  literary legacy.
