Mendele Personal Notices and Announcements

August 15, 2012

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;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: Seeking information on literary rights for members of Yung-Vilne

Next month I will be submitting to press a monograph on the literary
group Yung-Vilne.  In order to reproduce images and cite personal
letters in the volume I am seeking information from Mendelyaner about
individuals who might hold rights to the works of the following
individuals, most of whom perished during the khurbn.

Bentsie Mikhtom (artist)

Rokhl Sutzkever (artists)

Sheyne Efron (artist)

Leyzer Volf (poet)

Please contact jcammy at smith.edu with information.
