Union of Yiddish Writers and Journalists in Vilna
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

These records were received in 1947 from the Offenbach Archival Depot (OAD), along with other surviving collections from the YIVO in Vilna.

These are administrative records of the Fareyn fun yidishe literatn un zhurnalistn in Vilne, Union of Yiddish Writers and Journalists in Vilna. They represent a fraction of the original union records. Nevertheless, they are extensive enough to document the main activities of this organization, and the role of the Yiddish press and publishing in Vilna in the interwar period.

Included are: minutes of meetings, 1919-1939; correspondence regarding the Yiddish Pen-Club; correspondence with newspapers; memoranda to the JDC and the Vilna Kehillah regarding relief funds; general correspondence.
