Black Honey Film Screening

February 24, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for a film screening of Black Honey: The Life and Poetry of Avraham Sutzkever. The film will be introduced by Prof. Sunny Yudkoff and shown in full on Monday, Feb 24 beginning at 7:00pm in Room L196 of the Education Building (on Bascom Mall).


Black Honey (2018) tells the story of Yiddish poet-partisan Avraham Sutzkever. An upstart poet in Warsaw, a member of the defiant “Paper Brigade” in the Vilna Ghetto, a witness at the Nuremberg Trials, and a Yiddish editor in Tel Aviv, Sutzkever had many different roles over the course of his life. In each, he dedicated himself to the power of words to shape history and define heroism. Read more about the film here.



This event is made possible through the support of our generous co-sponsors: the Mayrent Institute for Yiddish Culture, CREECA, Department of History, and German, Nordic, and Slavic.
