Working with Holocaust Documents: A Personal Perspective

Rebecca Wolpe has a BA in Hebrew from Wadham College, Oxford, and an MA and PhD in Yiddish from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She has worked at Yad Vashem for around nineteen years in various capacities, including guiding in the museum and translating/editing various books. She has also translated documents from the Ringelblum Archive as well as other private memoirs.

About the lecture: Over the years I have had the privilege of working with a lot of Holocaust documents, including some in Yiddish that have only now been translated. I would like to share some of the amazing stories I’ve encountered, including a look at the original Yiddish manuscripts, some difficulties we’ve encountered and some startling coincidences.
