Wexler Oral History Project

The Yiddish Book Center’s Wexler Oral History Project is a growing collection of in-depth interviews with people of all ages and backgrounds, whose stories about the legacy and changing nature of Yiddish language and culture offer a rich and complex chronicle of Jewish identity. In our collection you'll find native Yiddish speakers, world-renowned klezmer musicians, grandmothers, descendants of Yiddish writers, students, and more.  The interviews are focused life histories, covering family background, involvement with Yiddish language and culture, Jewish identity, and the transmission of culture and values across generations and communities.

About Short Films

Short films produced by the Yiddish Book Center's Wexler Oral History Project that tell personal stories about Yiddish culture: the compelling life of a master klezmer musician, the Yiddish roots of a Jewish celebrity, reflections from the children of Yiddish writers, and more.
