Location: Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archives


When we study the Holocaust, we remember…loss, tragedy, relationships. We see a world taken from us that was warm and comforting. We think of ‘der alteheim.” the old home and all the sweet memories that were part of it.

This semester, we are most fortunate to once again have Bob Spiotto, playwriter and actor, who was introduced to the members of the KupferbergCenter’s 2011 program as Primo Levi in "And When We Started Singing." This time Bob Spiotto takes us back to early 20th century Eastern Europe in his work Shalom/Sholom, Celebrating Sholom Aleichem. Come enter a world we know, but no longer exist.

Join us as Bob Spiotto offers a nostalgic collection of stories we have heard, but love to hear again as they create the same precarious balance of humor, tragedy, pathos and philosophical insights that have become part of who we are. Bob Spiotto’s gift for narrative and voices takes us on this journey to the past.
