Today, April 19, marks the start of the most intense period of fighting between the Jewish resistance and the Nazi occupation during the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in 1943. In a week of Holocaust Remembrance, many around the world are celebrating the spirit of resistance against oppression that arose during the Shoah. The Workmen’s Circle/Arbeter Ring (a 100+ year old Jewish organization committed to Yiddish culture and social justice), for one, is hosting Warsaw Ghetto Uprisig Memorials today in New York, Toronto, and elsewhere.

On this week’s radio613, we speak with Adrienne Cooper of the Workmen’s Circle/Arbeter Ring. Our conversation explores Holocaust education and remembrance through themes of resistance and mutual aid, the work of AR and the Bund, Yiddish music as historical text, and much more. The show begins with the song “Di Shvue”, the theme of the Bundist movement, performed by Adrienne Cooper, The New Yiddish Chorale, and The Workmen’s Circle Chorus and concludes with a rendition of “Zog nit Keynmol” from the Partisans of Vilna album.

Adrienne Cooper is one of the most acclaimed singers of Yiddish vocal music in the world today. She has written, performed, and produced countless Yiddish theatre shows, was a key part of the “Klezmer Revival”, and worked for a decade as Assistant Director of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research.
