Beschreibung

(FT) Original Wrappers. 12mo. 79 pages. 17 cm. Undated edition. In Yiddish. "Song of the Murdered Jewish People" by Itzhak Katzenelson (1885–1944) , a Hebrew and Yiddish poet. "Katzenelson’s world fell apart when in August 1942 his wife Hanna and two younger sons, Ben-Tsiyon and Binyamin, were deported to Treblinka. From then on, his literary creativity was piercingly shaped by lamentations over the loss of his family. Nonetheless, with his oldest son, Tsevi, he found the strength to join the Jewish Fighting Organization and took part in the first uprising of January 1943. After the ghetto was destroyed in April and May 1943, he escaped to the Aryan section of Warsaw and obtained a Honduran identity document. Nevertheless, he was sent to a German detention camp for foreign subjects in Vittel, France. He was imprisoned there until April 1944, and devoted most of his time to writing. Two important works were produced during that period: Pinkas Vitel (The Vittel Diary) , a Hebrew composition that uses the language of an incensed diarist and reconstructs the days of terror in Warsaw during the mass deportations; and Dos lid fun oysgehargetn yidishn folk (The Poem about the Murdered Jewish People) , a pathos-filled Yiddish poem that laments the destruction of the Jewish people and of the poet himself, who has been become bitterly angry with humankind and God. These two works are among the boldest and most lofty literary expressions to emerge from the Holocaust. All of Katzenelson’s works from his Vittel period were either buried in hiding places or were given to people he trusted; consequently, they were saved and published shortly after the end of the war. In the middle of April 1944, Katzenelson and his son Tsevi were sent to the Drancy transit camp, and from there one month later to Auschwitz, where they were murdered. In 1950, the Ghetto Fighters kibbutz built a museum and an institute for research about the Holocaust that bear Yits? Ak Katzenelson’s name.
