Text Description

This fascinating volume authored by Yisrael Kaplan documents the changes in Jewish verbal expression during the years of Nazi persecution, analysing poems, jokes, popular expressions, proverbs, slogans, common curses, secret codes, and more.

Before the war, Yisrael Kaplan was a teacher in various Hebrew schools in Lithuania. After the liberation, he worked at the Central Jewish Historical Commission in Munich and edited the periodical Fun letstn khurbn (English: Of the recent destruction). In this short and fascinating volume published in 1949 he documented the changes in Jewish verbal expression during the years of Nazi persecution, analysing poems, jokes, popular expressions, proverbs, slogans, common curses, secret codes, and more.

We hold both the Yiddish original copy and the recent translation published by Yad Vashem in 2018.
