We generally think of Yiddish as the pre-Holocaust shtetl language, and of its surviving speakers as having long-ago resettled across various continents. We don't tend to think about the shtetls – and the native Yiddish speakers – survivors left behind. Luckily, some researchers at the University of Indiana, Bloomington have.From 2002 to 2012, linguist Dov-Ber Kerler and historian Jeffrey Veidlinger interviewed almost 400 elderly Yiddish speakers scattered across rural Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Hungary, and Slovakia. They named their project AHEYM for its double meaning: It both means "homeward" in Yiddish, and is an acronym for "Archives of Historical and Ethnographic Yiddish Memories."The extensive online archives are broadly searchable and include such categories as Daily Life, Foodways, Historical Events, and Songs, Poems, & Prayer. Go a level deeper and you'll see that each of those categories lead to more.Upon searching for a good Purim hamantaschen recipe, for instance, you may be delighted to learn that Donia Presler's family made them with rice pudding and ate them on Shavues.If you lose yourself in their memories, just don't say we didn't warn you!
