Yiddish Treasures Goldie Morgentaler
Original in perspective, range and tone, Confessions of a Yiddish Writer offers a powerful and remarkable presentation of Holocaust-related memoir and careful readings of key Yiddish and European writers. Rosenfarb addresses many of the key themes of 20th century history and Jewish daily life, in her wonderfully intimate and wry way. And she sets herself apart from the crowd on any number of familiar themes. Norman Ravvin
CHAVA ROSENFARB (1923-2011) was one of the most prominent Yiddish novelists of the 20th century. Born in Poland, she survived the Lodz ghetto, Auschwitz, and Bergen-Belsen, immigrating to Canada in 1950 and settling in Montreal. Translated and edited by her daughter Goldie Morgentaler, the book is a compilation of the memoir and diary excerpts that formed the basis of Rosenfarbs widely acclaimed fiction and her experiences as a survivor in the post-Holocaust world.
