A Focus On Yiddish Women Writers

In conjunction with Women’s History Month, we’re focusing on Yiddish women writers—their lives, the breadth of their work, and their contributions to Yiddish literature. Our selections include an interview with Miriam Oles, granddaughter of Yiddish writer Eliezer Schindler; an episode of The Shmooze, where we discuss the 2017 Pakn Treger Translation Issue, which was devoted entirely to Yiddish women writers; and a short piece of translated fiction by Yente Serdatsky.
