April 4, 2011 - Our cousin Vivien Lang in Philadelphia recalls Leah 
Kapilowitz Hofman's story "Hent oyfn Meine Oygelach," "My Hands upon My 
Little Eyes," which she and our cousin, her late brother Ygal Roodenko, 
read as New York kids in the latter 1920s. She hopes someone has a 
translation. I hope someone has the story!

Posted are the story collection Kleyne in der Groyser Velt (1920, 194 
pages, 25 stories), the poem collections In Kinderland (1918, 226 pages, 5 
collections) and Mon Blumen (1941, 114 pages, 5 collections), Teatr-Shpiln 
(1930, 98 pages, 8 plays). Dem Zeydn's Tabik Pushke (1946, 8 pages) is 
another of the books downloadable from 
http://www.archive.org/details/nybc213373 .

Any recollection or other information referring to the "Little Eyes" story 
by Leah Kaprilovich would be welcome.
