Motl Murstein: Holocaust Poem Translated from Polish (new); English Yiddish Dictionary Interviews (repeat)

Aug 31, 201660 minutes


Local long-time listener and occasional contributor Mark (Motl) Murstein recited his own translation of a poem written in Polish about the Holocaust, which to our knowledge had never been translated, much less broadcast, before! Also, Mark gave sang us a "popular" song, of which we have to date not found any recordings.

Also, we replayed excerpts of the interview aired July 13, 2016, with English-Yiddish Dictionary editors, which we described as follows:
