Chava Rosenfarb was one of the great Yiddish writers of the second half of the 20th century. Burn in 1923 in the Polish city of Lodz, she began writing poetry in the ghetto. After barely surviving Auschwitz, she was homeless and stateless for several years before immigrating to Canada. She was married to the abortion rights activist and physician Heniek (Henry) Morgentaler. Rosenfarb's wrok and life will be introduced by her daughter Goldie Morgentaler, a literature professor at the University of Lethbridge and the translator of her mother's works into English.

The talk is preceded by a free screening of the film Chava Rosenfarb: That Bubble of Being (2015, Yiddish with English subtitles).
