Yiddish Language and Song: A Collision with Zionism and the Birth of Israel

I was catching up on some Yiddish video's this afternoon and ran into this fascinating documentary interview with Yiddish culture archivist, Frank Krasnowsky by PDXJustice.Org. I've only seen the first 10 minutes or so, but it bounces back and forth between Yiddish protest music, socialism and anarchism, and US and Israeli history. Great stuff. (Warning...this is a long GoogleVideo. You can see a 10 minute excerpt at YouTube.com)
