Klezmer Dynasty: An Intimate History of Modern Jewish Culture, 1880-2019

Speaker: Frances Tanzer (Rose Professor of Holocaust Studies and Modern Jewish History and Culture, Clark University)

Klezmer Dynasty proposes an intimate transnational cultural history of the Holocaust and modern Jewish experience by focusing on Tanzer’s own family, the Brandwein klezmer musicians of Przemyślany/Peremyshliany in Habsburg Galicia. They innovated klezmer music and Jewish culture from 1880 to 2019 as they experienced the changes wrought by modernity, migration, the Holocaust, and its aftermath.

Sponsored by the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies
