    What was life like for Jews coming of age in Poland during the interwar years? In the 1930s, scholars at the YIVO Institute set out to study Jewish life in Poland through an innovative approach—holding a series of autobiography contests for Jewish youth. Over 600 hundred Jewish adolescents responded from across the social spectrum: religious and secular, rich and poor, from large cities and small towns. In this talk, Jeffrey Shandler, Professor and Chair of Jewish Studies at Rutgers University, explores the insights that the resulting stories provide into the rich, complex lives of this singular generation. During the program, members of the audience will read excerpts from several of the autobiographies.
