Beyond Fiddler: Teaching Representations of Jewish Eastern Europe on Film

Sarah Ellen Zarrow

Sarah Zarrow discusses and reflects on her course “Representing Jewish Eastern Europe in Film” in which she asks students to think historically about the images of Jewish life in Eastern Europe, using films as primary sources that speak not only to a historical reality of their subject matter, but that also to the ideology and historical circumstances of the filmmaker and of Jewish life in the time and place the film was made.
