I have just noticed on the front flap of the dustjacket of the
Yudel Flior "Dvinsk" book the following:

"He left behind sixteen manuscripts of about 80,000 words each of
which this is the first to be published. The originals are all in Yiddish."
This is astonishing! If the other manuscripts are half as interesting as
the first, this is a real treasure trove.
Now comes the question: do any of you South African genners know
about this, or know where those manuscripts might be? >>

A subsequent inquiry was directed to Prof Joseph Sherman, noted SA
Yiddishist, who knew Maurice Flior, son of Yudel, but was not aware of any
extant manuscripts. Nothing is listed in the archives fo the SAJBOD. The
book on Dvinsk was published by Dial Press circa 1959.
