I am pleased to announce that a biographical sketch of the Jewish Danzig
poet and journalist Erich Ruschkewitz, by Prof. Marion Brandt of the
University of Gdansk, is now available in the Articles section of our SIG
website. Accompanying it are several poems >from Ruschkewitz's "Adlers
Brauhaus bis Leichenschauhaus" (Danzig, 1929). Thanks very much to Prof.
Brandt for this important contribution describing a Jewish contribution to
the Danzig literary environment, and to Erich's relative Frank Meisler for
supplying the poems.
Prof. Brandt would appreciate hearing >from anyone who knew Erich Ruschkewitz
personally. If you or someone you know did, please contact me.
This is also a reminder that you too can contribute biographical information
about Danzig individuals or families as an article for the SIG website. If
you are interested, please contact me with the proposed topic.
