More on Eliach's Eishyshok book #yizkorbooks

Martin Kessel <mkessel@...>

Over the past few days, there has been a flurry of discussion about Yaffa
Eliach's book on Eishyshok (Eikiskes), Lithuania. Although the book
describes one particlar shtetl, it apparently gives a picture of shtetl
life that is of much broader interest. I'm extracting the following two
messages >from the Litvak SIG Digest:

Well not quite, as I was hoping to announce that Yaffa Eliach's book on
Eyshishok won the National Book Award. Still it is remarkable that a
900 year chronicle of a Lithuanian shtetl was a finalist.

I just heard today that Ms. Eliach will be a guest on the Diane Rehm show
(on public radio) on Monday, Nov. 23. Check with your local NPR affiliate
for details or the NPR web site <>.
