To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Subject: Romm Press and a Sutzkever poem

I am a Jewish letterpress artist in Minneapolis researching the history of
the Romm Press for an upcoming personal project. I am searching for a
specific piece of Romm's story that I am having a difficult time finding. I
have only heard that the lead type was melted down to make the bullets for
the war. I have not found any actual information on this with the exception
of a beautiful poem written by Abraham Sutzkever. Do you know of anyone who
might be able to give me some information about this or might know how to
get in touch with Abraham. I know he is living in Israel but do not know how
to reach him.

      Thank you.
