Yiddish literature-Translations into English, Volf Vevyorke, Chil Aronson


This project translated five short stories into English from the writer Wolf Wieviroka (also spelled Volf Vevyorke) from his Yiddish book Mizrekh un mayrev [East and West] (1936). This project also translated a chapter from Bilder un geshtaltn fun Monparnas [Scenes and figures of Montparnasse] (1963) by Chil Aronson (also know as Khil Aron) about Helena Rubinstein. The translations are accompanied by a short biography of the authors and the Yiddish literary scene in interwar Paris.
