Subject: Widze

In 1937 in Warsaw a small book of Yiddish poetry was published. _Velt
In Tsoim_ contained Baruch Gelman's poetry. He was a native of Widze in
the Vilna area, and in fact, some of the poems tell of that shtetl. He
died at the hands of the Nazis when he was only 31 years old. Several
years ago we in Israel (Winunsky in Widze until 1930) photocopied the
book and republished it, for the purpose of remembering important
personages of our shtetl.
