Yisroel Shtern (1894 -
? 1942) was one of Warsaw's leading poets and essayists in Yiddish, in the period
between the two World Wars. An eccentric and modest man, a portion of his work was assembled for the
first time posthumously in New York in 1955. Very little has appeared before in English translation.
The Yisroel Shtern Project aims
to present all of his work in Yiddish on the net, together with
English translations. The project has been supported by the voluntary
work of gifted translators on two
continents, and by the Australian Centre for the Study of Jewish
Civilization, which has a special interest
in Polish Jewry between the world wars. Read More
