2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;and 
write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has

Subject: Song Khane Khaytin's song from the Shavl Ghetto

Song from the Shavl Ghetto

In a book forthcoming from the University of Nebraska Press, I would like 
to quote from a song by Khane Khaytin (or Khana Kheytin, or Khane
Kheytin-Weinstein), who was a resident of the Shavl Ghetto.  Her song "A 
yidish kind" ("In a litvish derfl vayt...") is well-known.  I plan to 
quote from a
different song, addressed to the Jewish ghetto police.

Khane Khaytin is no longer alive.  Does anyone know of an estate or heirs 
who could grant permission for the quote?
