The Yiddish Book Center announced that they have digitized and posted works of the Yiddish writer Chaim Grade, one of the great masters of modern Yiddish literature. The newly digitized works are freely available online for the first time in the Yiddish Book Center’s Steven Spielberg Digital Yiddish Library. These include many of his most famous novels and poetry collections, published from the 1930s to the 1960s.

Yiddish Book Center Founder and President Aaron Lansky notes, “Chaim Grade was one of the most original, profound, and consequential Yiddish writers of the last century. Thanks to our colleagues at the YIVO Institute and the National Library of Israel, we are thrilled to make the Yiddish originals of his most important works available in the Yiddish Book Center’s Steven Spielberg Digital Yiddish Library where they’re fully accessible for eager readers, scholars, and translators everywhere.”
