It should be very interesting discussion!

The Flushing library of the Queens Library will present: Birobidzhan:
Stalin's Forgotten Zion Branch.
Created by Stalin in 1928 as a region of former USSR,
It was created in 1934

it was a center of Yiddish language and culture.
It never was any center of Jewish life and culture. In the best years there
were not more then 10% of Jews in the district population, that is, about 10
thousand Jews. I have met several Jews who made alia >from Birobidzhan - they
don't speak Yiddish. Yes, there was the newspaper "Birobidzhner Stern", they
had some kind of Jewish life, but it was far >from being "the center" of.

Nikolai Borodulin, teacher at Birobidzhan Teachers College, will discuss
Jewish life there.
It would be interesting to hear Mr. Borodulin.

Shavua tov! (Have a good week!),

Let me clear something up:

I just saw the announcement of this talk at a Queens Library branch in NYC.
I simply posted it as a public service. I have no interest in the area or
knowledge of it beyond rudimentry.

But for those of you who live in or near Queens you can check for the
activities on their website http://www.queenslibrary.org. Queens has a very
large Uzbeki Jewish community as well as Russian Jewish (not to mention
large communities >from all over and every background) so they are always
having something that might be of interest (culturally) to some of us.

They dreamed of building a red Jewish homeland in collaboration with a
Soviet regime. I believe a handful of Jews >from America even went there.
It would indeed be interesting to hear how Nikolai Borodulin presents this.
