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. In this program, Zalmen Mlotek, Artistic Director of the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene (NYTF) and Musical Director of Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish, discusses his family legacy and the “transforming moments” he experienced growing up as the child of a Holocaust survivor. Mlotek is interviewed by Dr. Eva Fogelman, renowned psychologist and author of the Pulitzer Prize-nominated book Conscience and Courage: Rescuers of Jews During the Holocaust.
