t) 1985 Nabisco Brands, Inc.

Spertus Museum of Judaica.
More than 180 of the photos
appear in the book.
The photographs show
interiors and exteriors of
synagogues, workplaces,
homes, cheders, seniors
studying Talmud and holiday
celebrations. He undertook
the study of the remaining
East European Jewish com-
munities for a couple of rea-
sons.
"I wanted to make the
Jewish public and general
public aware that there's still
Jewish life in Soviet Bloc
countries," he asserts, and he
has ties to Eastern Europe. It
is the homeland for both sets
of his grandparents.
His interest in European
Jewry got a boost when as a
student at the University of
Uppsala in Sweden, Strom
took a short trip to the Soviet
Union. He returned to Russia
in 1981, where he researched
klezmer music and made
"field recordings" of the
music he heard played there.
After having discovered sev-
eral small communities of
Jews, Strom decided to go
back to Eastern Europe and
document the culture of these
slowly disappearing areas.
Strom said that during his
travels he got a sense of the
East European experience by
staying in the homes of the
Jews he met. "I felt what
they went through and what
their kids went through," re-
ferring to the Eastern
Holocaust survivors' postwar
experience.
He approached some
Jewish organizations for sub-
sidies for his East Europe re-
search, but was refused. All
expenses came out of his own
pocket.
Plans are for the photo ex-
hibit to be shown in Chicago,
San Diego, Miami and in
New York. Currently, it is
not scheduled for Detroit, but
Strom has remedied that.
Wherever he goes to perform
with his klezmer band, he
always takes a few photos
with him.
The research from his
1984-1985 trip to Poland,
Czechoslovakia, Hungary,
Yugoslavia, Romania, Bul-
garia and the USSR has led
him to create a film about
the surviving Jewish
corn-
.
munities.
Using the title of his book
and calendar, the film is
aimed at high school and col-
lege students, "for them to
learn about another person's
culture after the Holocaust"
and how that culture con-
tinues. Although the film,
book and calendar have a
specific appeal to Jews, Strom
said he hopes to "hit more of
a general audience." And
what is his ultimate objec-
tive? "I want to show Yiddish
culture as it is today, in its
natural habitat."

Strom said he estimate.
the film will cost about
$50,000-$70,000 to make.
However, he is having diffi-
culty finding financing. He
describes the film, which b.- ew
ultimately hopes to air over
public television, as an "ody&,-
sey of two young men," at
seen through his partner's
perspective — looking at a
"dying culture" through 'r3_
non-Jew's eyes. There will be
on-camera interviews with
Strom and Blue, and live in-
terviews with people wb:3 -
have viewed their photo ex-
hibit. Strom will score the
film with klezmer music.
A musician for 21 of his 29
years, Strom has experience
playing classical, bluegrass7(
swing and jazz. In addition to
violin, he plays banjo, mand
lin and "a lot of tambourine-."`
He first learned of klezmer
music when he heard the<
"Big Jewish Band" play in
San Diego. He asked to play_
with the band, but was re-
fused. He then decided to gr-
to the "natural source" _
klezmorim or former klez-
morim still living in Eastern
Europe — to study this par-
ticular musical style.
Today, he has his own
group, Zmiros (Melodies), and
performs around the country
The band has two albums to
its credit, Cholent with
Huckleberry and Eclectic,
Klezz. He composes music in
the klezmer tradition, while
his other compositions bear
the blues and swing influ-
ences. .
His musical mentors are
Leopold Kolowzski, musicni
director of the Warsaw Yid=
dish State Theater, who is
decended from a prominent
klezmer family, Strom said,
and Michael Alpert of Los
Angeles, who plays in the
Kapelye band.
Strom is looking forward
his Detroit visit. Although he
has resided in California for
the past 18 years, he still is a
diehard fan of the Detroit
sports teams. In addition,
Strom is excited to be able to
play for his relatives anirl
friends.
Strom was graduated from
San Diego State University
and earned a master's degree
in Yiddish studies from New
York University. He speaks
Hebrew and Yiddish.
His current activities r(
volve around his music_,
working on the photo exhibit'
and finding funding for his
film. In January, Strom plams--
to move to New York to pur-
sue a Ph.D. degree in Jewish
studies, focusing on post
World War II Jewish cultur'
in Eastern Europe.
Although the small Jewish
communities in Eastern
Europe are vanishing, their
struggle to maintain their
traditions will remain re
corded for posterity thanks to
the efforts of Yale Strom. 0
