A riveting account of life and death in the Vilna Ghetto by one of the great Yiddish poets of the twentieth century.
Abraham Sutzkever (1913-2010) was an acclaimed Yiddish poet. He achieved international recognition as a young writer in interwar Poland and later settled in Tel Aviv. Justin D. Cammy is professor of Jewish studies and world literatures at Smith College and a 2018 Yiddish Book Center Translation Fellow.
"From the Vilna Ghetto to Nuremberg acquaints the English-language reader with an important document about the Holocaust. It's especially worthwhile to read the afterword, which reveals in detail the complicated process of creating this remarkable book, an exemplary scholarly feat." Forward Reviews
