September – November 2014
The Mizel Museum and Jewish Family Service are proud to present the annual Babi Yar Memorial, held at Babi Yar Park in southeast Denver on Sunday, Sept. 28, at 11:00 am. This year’s program will focus on Yiddish literature and culture in Eastern Europe, led by keynote speaker David Shneer, Director of Jewish Studies at CU Boulder. The program will include a short Klezmer concert performed by the talented Joseph Lukasik of the Boulder Klezmer Consort. According to Dr. Shneer, “After the Holocaust, Yiddish took on a memorial quality. Whether in Yizkor books, novels or poetry, Yiddish literature after the Holocaust echoed with the lives of those lost.”
The Babi Yar Memorial is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Deanne Kapnik at 303-749-5019 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
