Chaim Grade Memorial on the 100th Anniversary of his Birth
Oct 4 2010

On the 100th anniversary of the birth of Chaim Grade, one of the great Yiddish poets and novelists of the 20th century, Ruth Wisse discussed Grade's works; Allan Nadler discussed the milieu that Grade grew up in; Jonathan Brent shared his experience examining Grade's library and papers; and recorded remarks by Curt Leviant were shown (not included in this video).

The symposium was preceded by a screening of the English-language film The Quarrel (Canada, 1991) based on Grade's story "My Quarrel with Hersh Rasseyner."

An exhibition of Grade's books, manuscripts, and letters from the YIVO archives and library is on display.
