This event has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

Based on his groundbreaking research in archives on three continents, historian David Shneer brings Lin Jaldati, a Dutch Jewish cabaret performer, who used political satire and fierce activism to advocate for change throughout her life. Through a compelling narrative, rare photographs, archival footage, as well as live performances of her repertoire, including Yiddish songs she originally sang for Holocaust survivors in DP camps, peasants in Indonesia, factory workers in North Korea, Shneer brings her political satire to Jewish Museum audiences.

This event has been created in collaboration with Holocaust Research Institute.
