      EVENT DETAILS
      THE DYBBUK IN THE SHTETL - Talk

      In the early 1900s S. An-sky led an ethnographic expedition to study life in the shtetl, producing the most complete documentation of it that exists. Today it is stored in St. Petersburg and little known in the West. An-sky and his team collected photographs, folklore, songs, and beliefs from secular and religious life. In some sense, An-sky is the ethnographic counterpart to Sholem Aleichem, but his version of shtetl life has more grit than our beloved versions in Tevye and Fiddler. Drawing from the folklore of this culture, increasingly lost in the mists of memory, An-sky wrote The Dybbuk. In this talk we have a window into the life that inspired him to write this historic play.
