The Shmooze: The Yiddish Book Center's podcast

A Trilingual (Yiddish, Ukrainian, English) Volume of Two Works of Children’s Poetry

Jordan Finkin and Jessica Kirzane visit with The Shmooze to talk about their latest project, a trilingual (Yiddish, Ukrainian, English) volume of two works of children’s poetry. The poems in the volume were originally composed in Ukrainian by Yuriy Budiak, and shortly thereafter translated by Yoysef Ravin (who was later killed in Stalin’s purges) and republished in Yiddish.
