Description

The first of its kind, this anthology showcases women’s writing previously available only in Yiddish. A book of voices from an almost forgotten female heritage, it features eighteen writers who speak powerfully of the events that shaped their lives.

About the Authors
Frieda Forman helped establish the Women's Educational Resources Centre at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education and continues to research and translate the works of important but forgotten Yiddish women writers.
