Yiddish Publishers in Warsaw #poland


Clifford S. Goldfarb
 

I am looking for information on two Yiddish publishers in Warsaw. The first is S. Goldfarb, 31 Dzika [sp.] Street, who was active at least between 1923-1926. He published a number of translations of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes tales (possibly retranslated from a Russian translationi, rather than the original English). The second is L.Goldfarb, who was active in 1937. I don't have an address for him, but he also published a translation of detective fiction in Yiddish. Any information on who these were, whether they were related, the scope of their business, etc., would be gratefully welcomed.

If you search my website, www.museumoffamilyhistory.com (Museum of Family History), under "Goldfarb publishing," you will find eighteen mentions of a Goldfarb publishing group in Warsaw. I don't think it gives much more than a citation in a bibliography, but it's something.

Thanks for that tip, Steven. Although there were no details of the publisher in the listings, I can add M. Goldfarb to my list. I can also try to find copies of the books listed to see if there is more information about the publishers.    Cliff Goldfarb   <cgoldfarb@...>
