Jan Schwarz om författaren Sholem Aleichem

Jiddisch far alle

Författaren Sholem Aleichem dog för hundra år sen i år. Jan Schwarz har varit på en konferens om honom i Jerusalem. Jiddisch är inte bara en kvarlämning från ett förgånget judiskt Östeuropa. Det är också ett språk genom vilket den judiska erfarenheten rört sig från tradition till modernitet. ”Tradizie” och modernitet är ett vanligt tema hos författaren bakom musikalen Spelman på taket: Sholem Aleichem, som dog för hundra år sen i år.Thomas Lunderquist träffar jiddischforskaren Jan Schwarz.
