Lexicon of Soviet Yiddish Writers

Our most recent publication is the late Chaim Beider's Biographical Dictionary of Yiddish Writers in the Soviet Union. Beider passed away in 2003, so Boris Sandler and Gennady Estraikh edited the final edition, now available through our bookstore, the CYCO. The volume is 464 pages, containing entries on 487 Soviet Yiddish writers, some of whom have never been mentioned in any lexicon. The book also includes a trilingual (Yiddish-English-Russian) glossary of Soviet Yiddish terms compiled by Estraikh.
