FRIENDS OF YIDDISH
Join us for an evening of poetry, film and conversation, organised in partnership with Manchester Poetry Library and Manchester Metropolitan University Writing School. During this event we will be exploring one of Britain’s foremost but now largely forgotten Yiddish poets Avram Nachum Stencl (1897 – 1983).
Join us for a film screening, where we will be showing ‘Truus’ Children’. The film tells the extraordinary story of the largely unknown Dutch resistance heroine Truus Wijsmuller (1896-1978), who managed to rescue more than 10.000 people from the hands of the Nazis in the years immediately before and during the Second World War thanks to her unprecedented perseverance, tact, and courage. Most of them were between 2 and 18 years old.
