The Collaboration: Hollywood's Pact With Hitler
Hollywood's Pact With Hitler: Scholar Ben Urwand
In the 1930s Hollywood studios changed or abandoned movies that would have exposed the horrors of Nazism in order to keep the German market open for American films. Drawing on a wealth of archival documents, including Hitler's personal notes, scholar Ben Urwand tells the astonishing story of Hollywood's collaboration with Nazi Germany. Urwand, a junior fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows, will share his shocking findings in conversation with George Washington University professor Jenna Weissman Joselit as part of the Jewish Literary Festival.

Barbra Streisand stars in and makes her directorial debut (for which she won a Golden Globe) in Yentl, the musical film about a young Jewish woman in early 20th-century Poland who disguises herself as a man so she can defy tradition and continue her study of the Talmud. While at a Jewish religious school, she winds up in a romantic triangle with a fellow student (Mandy Patinkin) and his fiancée (Amy Irving). This groundbreaking exploration of religious and gender identity was adapted from Isaac Bashevis Singer's classic Yiddish short story, Yentl the Yeshiva Boy, and features an Oscar-winning score, including the memorable songs "Papa, Can You Hear Me?" and "The Way He Makes Me Feel."
