From Sepharad to Sarajevo: A Journey of Persecution, Survival and Reconciliation
From Sepharad to Sarajevo: A Journey of Persecution, Survival and Reconciliation is an event jointly sponsored by the Pasadena Museum of History and the Pasadena Jewish Temple and Center. Edward Serotta, an expert on Balkan Jewry, will be there to lecture on the themes of Sephardim, the Balkans, and memory, woven through Geraldine Brook's People of the Book, the 2012 winner of Pasadena's "One City, One Story." The lecture will explore different periods of Sephardic and Balkan Jewry, the role of cultural memory, and the complex fabric of multi-ethnic and interfaith relations.With Ladino music courtesy of Cantor Ruth Berman Harris of the Pasadena Jewish Temple and Center. Rebecca Golbert, a visiting professor of Jewish Studies at Pepperdine University and Associate Director of the Glazer Institute for Jewish Studies, will be moderating.
Serotta will also be in conversation with SEE Fest's very own founder and director Vera Mijojlic! This is an event not to be missed!
