A Focus On Kadya Molodovsky
This month, in conjunction with Professor Anita Norich's recently published Pakn Treger article, Kadya Molodovsky: A Woman Novelist Rediscovered, we're focusing on the celebrated Yiddish writer. Our selections include a Molodovsky story from our Steven Spielberg Digital Yiddish Library, Norich's Pakn Treger article, in which she recounts her discovery of two long-forgotten novels by the Yiddish author, and a remastered recording of Molodovsky in conversation with Abraham Tabachnik.
