Stories of Exile- Book: The Glatstein Chronicles by Jacob Glatstein

March 5 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Glatstein Chronicles

Selection for Discussion: TBD

by Jacob Glatstein

Translated from Yiddish by Maier Deshell & Norbert Guterman

This seminal American work from the Yiddish literary canon, offers the luminous narrative of the author's journey home to his Polish birthplace. In 1934, with World War II on the horizon, Jacob Glatstein (1896-1971) traveled from his home in America to his native Poland to visit his dying mother. One of the foremost Yiddish poets of the day, he used his journey as the basis for two autobiographical novellas, together known as THE GLATSTEIN CHRONICLES, in which he intertwines childhood memories with observations of growing anti-Semitism in Europe.
