Jewish Humor and the Holocaust:
Amusing? Confusing? Offensive?

A lecture presentation by

Dr. Linda F. Burghardt
Scholar-in-Residence, HMTC

Friday, November 30, 2018, at 11 a.m.

Welwyn Preserve, 100 Crescent Beach Road
Glen Cove, NY

What made us laugh in the old days of Sid Caesar and Milton Berle is a far cry from the jokes and stories told by Larry David, Sarah Silverman and other contemporary comics today. But even if it seems like nothing is really off-limits anymore, do we want to hear Jewish comedians referencing the Holocaust for laughs? Join us on Friday, November 30 and you’ll see why figuring out what’s funny can be serious business.

Dr. Linda F. Burghardt, the Scholar-in-Residence at HMTC, is a journalist and author from Great Neck, NY. She worked as a freelance reporter for The New York Times for 20 years and is the author of three non-fiction books. Her articles and essays have appeared in newspapers across the U.S., and she has lectured to both national and international audiences. She holds a Ph.D. from LIU Post and is the daughter of Holocaust Survivors from Vienna.

There is a suggested donation of $10. For more information or to RSVP call (516) 571-8040 or email
