This site will present a fresh selection of the best Yiddish poetry of Poland during the golden period between the two world wars, together with translations into English, French, Polish and Hebrew, and Yiddish sound files: most poems are being recorded by native Yiddish speakers. Poems are being selected solely for their quality, and for their appeal to today's readers.

Based in Melbourne Australia, the site uses the services of Yiddish poetry readers and translators worldwide. Read more.
