Click play icon below to stream this episode.
Tamara Filyavich was 3 years old in this picture taken in the city of Yalta in Crimea where she was born. For 20 years she’s lived in Montreal. Today on Shtetl we talk Ukraine, being a Jew in the Soviet Union, Crimea, “integrating” into Canadian life and Quebec’s Charter of Secular Values.
Tune in for this conversation plus, lots of Ukrainian music- from traditional to ska.

Music by Med Heads, FLIT, Magical Crimea, Arkady Gendler and two folk songs for which I don’t have performer info: Tumbalalaika (Yiddish) and Tsvite Teren (Ukrainian).
