SINGER'S WARSAW - WARSZAWA SINGERA (FESTIVAL)

I. B. SINGER'S WARSAW
THE SIXTH ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF JEWISH CULTURE
29 August - 6 September 2009, Prozna street and Grzybowski square

The 100th anniversary of Isaac Bashevis Singer's birthday was the reason to organize the first edition of the Festival of Jewish Culture in Warsaw in 2004. This city was not chosen accidentally - the Nobel prizewinner was born in Poland and grew up in Warsaw, which had a special place in his heart throughout his entire life. Isaac Bashevis Singer loved Warsaw as much as he loved the Yiddish language, which was spoken in Warsaw by one third of its prewar citizens. Although he emigrated to the United States, he did not stop writing in Yiddish; his works were translated into English from Yiddish. It was aptly commented by American writer Kevin Horwarth that "Singer did not stop writing in Yiddish, just as if he had never left Warsaw".

The premiere of the Festival of Jewish Culture, "Singer's Warsaw" was in 2004. Since there, always at the beginning of September, a following edition of it takes place.
