Can humor be a weapon? If yes, is it effective? Based on Yiddish jokes and anecdotes recorded between 1943 and 1945, this recording of our March 25 interactive lecture/seminar tells the story of what Soviet Jews found funny and why, as they lived through the darkest period of modern Jewish history in Europe. University of Toronto Professor of Yiddish Studies Anna Shternshis follows her lecture with a Q&A with viewers.
