Avrom Sutzkever

In honor of one of the greatest poets of the 20th century and doyen of Yiddish poetry Avrom Sutzkever, z’’l (1913-2010), all events in Yiddish Summer Weimar 2010 are named after Sutzkever poems, and his work is also a major subject of this year’s Yiddish song workshop. Sutzkever saved Jewish and Yiddish cultural treasures while being forced to work in Vilna ghetto’s “paper brigade”, as a partisan, he fought in the woods – and always, even under the harshest conditions, he used his pen to record his world, using an innovative, musical language for a great variety of topics. With every workshop participant and every single warmly invited guest, new links are added to "the golden chain" of Yiddish (Sutzkever's name for the Yiddish literary magazine he published from 1949-95, "Di goldene keyt").
