About Dr. Simo Muir and his lecture on April 3rd, 2023, 7 - 9 pm CETDr. Simo Muir, renowned Yiddish lecturer at Lund University and Honorary Senior Research Fellow at University College in London, will deliver an online double lecture on the topic "Helsinki Yiddish Cabaret" on April 3, 2023 from 7-9 pm CET. The lecture is given in Yiddish and English. Simo Muir's research focuses on the cultural reactions to the Holocaust and post-war politics of memory among Finnish Jews. Simo holds an MA in Yiddish Studies from SOAS (University of London) and a doctorate from the University of Helsinki, which he received in 2004. He has extensively published on Jewish history in Finland and was a researcher in the Finnish Academy-funded project ‘Cultures of Silence’ between 2010 and 2014, focusing on Finnish historiography of the Holocaust.Dr. Muir's focus in his upcoming lecture lies on Yiddish cabaret performances that took place in Helsinki prior to and during World War II. By discovering the records of these performances, Dr. Muir was able to gain insight into historical events that may not have been documented in official records otherwise. „Helsinki Yiddish Cabaret“ was even made into a documentary film, with Sascha Lurje, Lorin Sklamberg and Michael Winograd.
