For years, the Yiddish culture was associated with images of ghettos and a sad, lost world. Now the Yiddish language, culture and music are back in the spotlight.
Dutch singer Shura Lipovsky is one of the driving forces behind the global rebirth of the Yiddish songbook. For the documentary "Yiddish is my instrument”, the singer has been followed around the globe for over a year, teaching and performing Yiddish songs.
The 45 minute documentary will be aired on April 1st, 2012, 14:10, on Nederland 2.
