      Family Papers: A Sephardic Journey through the Twentieth Century

      For centuries the port city of Salonica was home to the large Levy family. As leading editors and publishers, they chronicled modernity as it was experienced by Sephardic Jews across the Ottoman Empire. The wars of the twentieth century, however, redrew the borders around them, while global migrations cast them in many directions. Award-winning historian Sarah Abrevaya Stein shares the true story of a frayed and diasporic Sephardic Jewish family preserved in thousands of letters in Family Papers, recently honored with a Kirkus Star. At the Skirball, Stein will be in conversation with race and gender scholar Brenda E. Stevenson.

      “A masterful multigenerational reconstruction of a family’s life.”—Kirkus Reviews

      Presented in partnership with the UCLA Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies.
