Dr. Eddy Portnoy, YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, will discuss his new book, which exposes the seamy underbelly of Pre-World War II New York and Warsaw. True stories of Jewish drunks, thieves, murderers, and more, plucked from the pages of the Yiddish dailies, provide a window into an unknown Yiddish World.
