Mendele Personal Notices and Announcements
March 9, 2017

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

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text to victor.bers at yale.edu 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.

I am associate Profesor of Yiddish literature in the Institute of Jewish
Studies at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland.

I am going to publish soon an anthology of Yiddish literature written and
published in Lodz shortly after the WW II  (1945-1949). I want to reclaim
all selected poems / short stories  / essays from oblivion and this is why
I would like to identify and contact the copyright owners of the following
poets / prose writers / journalists:

Ashendorf Isroel (1909 -1956 Argentina?),

Berlinski Shloyme (1900-1959 Tel Aviv),

Guterman Gute (1911-? Israel?),

Guterman Itskhok (1907- after 1967 Brazil or Israel?),

Yonasovitsh Itskhok (1909-1989 Israel / Holon),

Kaganowski Efroim (1897 -1958 Paris),

Katsherginski Shmerke (1908-1954 Argentina)

Knapheys Moyshe (1910-? Argentina?),

Kupershmidt Leybl (1910-1987 Israel / Holon),

Kviatkovska-Pinkhasik Rivka (1920- ?? Israel),

Mark Ber (1908-1964 Warszawa)

Morgentoy Leyb (1905-1979 Halon, Israel),

Okrutny Yosef (1906-after 1981 Argentina?),

Olitski Leyb (1895[97]-1975 Israel),

Vogler Elkhonen (1907-1969 Paris),

Zak Avrom (1891- Buenos Aires),

Varshavski Itskhok – pseudonym?  (not I.B. Singer!)
