Dear Litvaksig enthusiasts,
I'm trying to find publications of my great-great aunt, Sophia
Warszawczyk Smolian, originally >from Kovno and Lodz, sister of my
great-grandmother Anna Warszawczk Markel.
In her death, notice published in the NY Times on 11/23/1933, it stated
"Sophia Smolian, Yiddish poet and philosopher, widow of Oscar Smolian,
New York merchant, died yesterday at the home of her son... She was
born in Kovno, Lithuania, seventy six years ago. Her writings include
two volumes of poems and one volume of philosophy."
In researching yiddish poets and philosophers, I can not find any
records of her work. Does anyone have any knowledge of her
publications? I would be most appreciative.
