Yiddishtown: East End Jewish Life in Yiddish Sketch and Story
This week The Shmooze goes transatlantic for a conversation with London-based Vivi Lachs, a social and cultural historian, Yiddishist, and postdoc research fellow at Queen Mary University of London. The author of several books including White Chapel Noise, Vivi translated the newly released London Yiddishtown: East End Jewish Life in Yiddish Sketch and Story, 1930–1950, a collection of previously untranslated short stories and sketches by Katie Brown, A. M. Kaizer, and I. A. Lisky.
