god fucking damn it. david shneer passed away. he was one of the best professors i ever had, and taught me so much about the history of jews in eastern europe, and taught me so much about yiddish and its history and how jews in the area related to it

he taught me how both yiddish and hebrew thrived part and parcel together, how every famous jewish author from that time related to each other and to jews across the world…goddamn. fuck. i met one of my most cherished friends in his class.

i wouldnt know anything about soviet jewry without him. i wouldn’t know how jewish anti fascists were murdered at stalins orders. i wouldnt know about the JAO and stalins insults to jews about it. i wouldnt know about pasternak, or peretz markish, or solomon mikhoels without him
