Just Reel Education: Black Honey, The Life and Poetry of Avraham Sutzkever

3:00PM - 4:00PM  


Contact Jeremy Lisitza

A Just Reel Education film discussion for "Black Honey, The Life and Poetry of Avraham Sutzkever," with a post-film discussion with film producer, Yair Qedar and CWB Scholar, Avi Ben Hur. 

The link to the film and the Zoom instructions will be sent out approximately one week before the discussion.  Black Honey tells the incredible story of the man who led an underground movement that saved Jewish manuscripts from the Nazis, survived WWII after Stalin sent him a private rescue plane, and testified in the Nuremberg Trials. After immigrating to Israel in 1947, he led a spirited revival of Yiddish culture, writing poetry that coursed with a sense of vibrant humanity that staved off the dark memory of the Holocaust.
