Cabaret Culture in Interwar Poland:  multimedia presentation by Jewish music specialist Ellie Shapiro, PhD

Jewish musicians played a significant role in shaping the popular culture of the newly independent Poland after World War I. Familiar with the modern sounds coming out of New York’s Tin Pan Alley and the alleys of Buenos Aires, they created a cabaret scene that brought tango, jazz and so much more to excited audiences. This multimedia presentation offers a window into this unique world that tragically ended in 1939.
