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

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
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Subject: Stories by Abraham Karpinovitch

I am preparing a collection of English translations of Vilna stories by 
Abraham Karpinovitch  In the introduction to the collection, I plan to 
include a discussion of Karpinovitch's aims and methodology as a writer. 
Amongst other themes, I will look at Karpinovitch's role as a memorialist, 
particularly of the lives of the amkho/common people. I will also discuss 
the ways in which he synthesized fact~T and fiction..

I would appreciate any record of Karpinovitch's own words (either written 
or recorded) on this topic.

I would also like information on Abraham Karpinovitch's relationship to 
Birobadjan including why he went, when, and a few details of what he 
experienced there.

Any assistance with these themes would be greatly appreciated. Please 
contact Helen Mintz at hanoe22 at gmail.com. Thank you.
