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