For three generations, from Warsaw to Vilna to Shanghai to New York, the Mlotek family has played a major role preserving Yiddish culture and heritage. Join Zalmen Mlotek, Artistic Director of the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene (NYTF) and Musical Director of Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish, for a conversation about his family legacy and the “transforming moments” he experienced growing up as the child of a Holocaust survivor.

Mlotek will be interviewed by Dr. Eva Fogelman, renowned psychologist and author of the Pulitzer Prize-nominated book Conscience and Courage: Rescuers of Jews During the Holocaust. This program is co-presented by the Museum and Descendants of Holocaust Survivors (2G Greater New York).
