Front-page headlines on political turmoil in the Ukraine greet us every day, but, as is always the case in politics, the past is context for the present.

Indeed, the past 100 years has been a century of tumult for the Jews, Ethnic Ukrainians and other peoples of the region. An abbreviated list of crises, catastrophes, and critical junctures of the period includes WWI, The Russian Revolution, and the Ukrainian War of Independence; the Pogroms of the following decade;  The famine of 1932-33;  The Holocaust; and Two World Wars and the displacement and forced repatriations  that followed. Amid the devastation, communities of all stripes developed cultural, political, and religious movements and a literature to describe variously their blossomings and their annihilation, their grief and their dreams, and their outrage and their calls to arms.

We offer below an assortment of rare imprints representing various facets of life in the Ukraine, Jewish and otherwise, and its diaspora.

A particular strentgh of this collection is a large assortment of Ukrainian language material published in or near the DP camps immediately after the war, including the first Ukrainian edition of George Orwell's Anti-Stalinist classic, Animal Farm.

In the introduction for this edition, Orwell explains his experiences during the Spanish Civil war and his connection to what he describes as “the negative impact of Soviet myth in Western socialist movement.” Shevchenko first read the book in English while living in a displaced persons camp. He chose to publish it under the title “Kolghosp Tvaryn” which directly referenced collectivized farms instead of choosing the more direct translation of “Ferma Tvaryn.” “Shevchenko wrote to Orwell in London, and, working with him by letter, published Animal Farm in Ukrainian. In March 1947, Shevchenko printed around 5, 000 copies to distribute among the Ukrainian refugees in the displaced persons camps of postwar Germany and Austria. But only 2, 000 books were given out; U. S. Soldiers, suspecting the books of being anti-Stalin propaganda, confiscated the rest and handed them over to Soviet authorities to be destroyed.” (Chalupa, “Orwell and the Refugees.”) Subjects: English fiction -- 20th century -- Translations into Ukrainian.

A Ukrainian political movement dedicated to the establishment of an independent Ukrainian state. The OUN arose from the merger of the Ukrainian Military Organization (UVO) and several nationalist student associations—the Group of Ukrainian National Youth, the League of Ukrainian Nationalists, and the Union of Ukrainian Nationalist Youth[…] According to its initial declaration the OUN's goal was to establish an independent, united national state on Ukrainian ethnic territory. This goal was to be achieved by a national revolution led by a dictatorship that would drive out the occupying powers and set up a government representing all regions and social groups. The economy was to be a mixture of private ownership, nationalization, and co-operation. The OUN rejected all party and class divisions and presented itself as the dominant force in Ukrainian life at home and abroad. Defining itself as a movement, not a party, it condemned the legal Ukrainian parties in Galicia as collaborationist. Blaming the socialist and liberal camps for the failure of the Ukrainian struggle for independence (1917–20), the OUN stressed the importance of a strong political elite, national solidarity, and reliance on ‘our own forces.’ It was attracted to B. Mussolini's fascist regime, which appeared to have saved Italy from anarchy. By the 1930s differences in outlook had appeared in the OUN: Konovalets and most of the PUN were pragmatic realists who thought in terms of traditional militaristic authoritarianism, whereas the younger members were integral nationalists who espoused a romantic, irrational devotion to the nation.” (Encyclopedia of Ukraine) Subjects: Ukrainian Nationalism.

Mutual hostility of the three Ukrainian forces, warned the philosopher, creates a vacuum of power. Shlemkevych’s major position was one of a nationalist and independent Ukraine. (tyzhden.

About the life and poetry of Olena Teliha written by Dmytro Dontsov, a fellow member of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists. Olena Teliha was a Ukrainian Nationalist poet and leader. “From 1933 [Olena Teliha] contributed to the nationalist journal Vistnyk (Lviv). In Cracow from 1939 to 1941, she headed the literary-artistic society Zarevo and together with Oleh Olzhych worked in the cultural sector of the Leadership of Ukrainian Nationalists. With the outbreak of the war between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union she moved to Lviv and then left with the OUN expeditionary groups for Kyiv in 1941. There she became head of the Writers' Union and editor of the literary weekly Litavry (Kyiv). When the Nazi regime closed down Litavry's parent newspaper, ‘Ukraïns’ke slovo’ (1941), and replaced it with the pro-regime ‘Nove ukraïns’ke slovo’, Teliha refused to co-operate. She was arrested by the Gestapo and shot, together with other Ukrainian nationalists.” (Encyclopedia of Ukraine) In 2005, researcher Kateryna Kryvoruchko discovered previously unknown poetry written by Teliha. Included in the collection is “I Drained That Goblet Thousands of Times” believed to have been written as late as 1940, two years before Teliha’s death. “‘I Drained That Goblet Thousands Of Times’ is a symbolic poem written in response to the allegation that the poet led on the theoretician of Ukrainian nationalism, Dmytro Dontsov. […] The newly discovered poem contains a response to Olena’s ill-wishers: she and the unnamed man (most likely Dontsov) are friends, comrades in arms, and nothing more.” (Tysiachna, The Long Return, 2005, Dmytro Dontsov was a political journalist, editor, literary critic and theorist for the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists. After emigrating to Canada in the late 1940’s, his strong opposition to Russia, and unending support of Ukrainian independence was still present in his writing and work in continued support of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists.

A detailed scholarly study of the terrible Ukrainian pogroms in 1919 written by “Elias Tcherikower (1881–1943), historian of Russian Jewish life and anti-Jewish violence. …The 1919 Bolshevik suppression of Jewish autonomy and the simultaneous wave of violence and mass murder against Ukrainian Jewish communities by nationalist, White, and other forces (‘the Ukrainian pogroms’) strongly shaped Tsherikover’s subsequent scholarly career. He helped compile an essential collection of documents and testimonies on Jewish autonomy and its dissolution (Di idishe oytonomie un der natsyonaler secretariat in Ukraine; 1920) and later edited a related volume of documents and memoirs on revolutionary-era Jewish life, In der tkufe fun revolutsye (Berlin, 1924). From 1919, Tsherikover devoted himself especially to gathering evidence about pogroms. By the time he left Russia for Berlin via Kovne/Kaunas in 1921, he had compiled a massive archive (now housed at YIVO). Settling in Berlin, he began a massive scholarly project on pogroms with other Jewish scholars and activists, including Simon Dubnow, Yosef Schechtman, Nokhem Shtif, Jakob Lestschinsky, and N. Gergel. Tsherikover himself wrote two historical studies on pogroms: Antisemitizm un pogromen in Ukraine, 1917–1918 (published in Yiddish and Russian, 1923) and Di Ukrainer pogromen in 1919, published posthumously (1965).

He helped compile an essential collection of documents and testimonies on Jewish autonomy and its dissolution (Di idishe oytonomie un der natsyonaler secretariat in Ukraine; 1920) and later edited a related volume of documents and memoirs on revolutionary-era Jewish life, In der tkufe fun revolutsye (Berlin, 1924). From 1919, Tsherikover devoted himself especially to gathering evidence about pogroms. By the time he left Russia for Berlin via Kovne/Kaunas in 1921, he had compiled a massive archive (now housed at YIVO). Settling in Berlin, he began a massive scholarly project on pogroms with other Jewish scholars and activists, including Simon Dubnow, Yosef Schechtman, Nokhem Shtif, Jakob Lestschinsky, and N. Gergel. Tsherikover himself wrote two historical studies on pogroms: Antisemitizm un pogromen in Ukraine, 1917–1918 (published in Yiddish and Russian, 1923) and Di Ukrainer pogromen in 1919, published posthumously (1965).

This organization is keenly interested in the struggle of the Ukrainian nation against all those neighbours who seized her lands and enslaved her population.

Memorial Book for “Kolomyia (or Kolomyya; Pol, Kolomyja; Ger, Kolomea), city on the Prut River in Ukraine. Jews first settled in Kolomyja, then part of Poland, at about the turn of the sixteenth century. Although many were murdered and the community was destroyed during the Khmel’nyts’kyi massacres of 1648–1649, the Jewish population quickly reestablished itself and numbered more than 1, 000 residents by 1772, when Austria wrested the city from Polish control and made it part of the new province of Galicia. … With its high percentage of Jewish residents, Kolomea had a major impact on Jewish politics in the half century following Jewish emancipation in 1867–1868. … Jewish life in interwar Kolomyja typified the interwar Polish experience, with economic conditions steadily deteriorating for its roughly 15, 000 Jews, while cultural and political life thrived, particularly the wide variety of Zionist factions. Following Soviet occupation in 1939, all of these organizations were dissolved. Hungarian and German forces quickly conquered the town in the summer of 1941, and most of its Jews were murdered by February 1943 at the Szepariwice forest outside the city and the Belzec death camp. Few survivors returning from hiding or the Soviet Union remained after the war, although the town still had about 200 Jewish families in 1957 and 70 in 1969.” (YIVO Encyclopedia) Edited by Shlomo Bickel (1896–1969), “Yiddish writer, critic, and journalist.

  223. Steinman, Eliezer. SEFER HA-BESHT. Tel-Aviv, Hotsaat “keneset”, 1958. Original cover, 8vo, 389 pages, 25 cm. In Hebrew. Series: Beer ha-Hasidut; Variation: Steinman, Eliezer. Beer ha-Hasidut. SUBJECT(S): Hasidim -- Ukraine -- Biography. Hasidim -- Legends. Hasidism. Baal Shem Tov, ca. 1700-1760. Steinman (1892-1970) was a “Hebrew writer. Born in Obodovka, Steinman was ordained a rabbi, and began to write at an early age, but it took some time before his first stories appeared in print. Steinman pursued literary work and was also a part-time Hebrew teacher in Odessa. He contributed regularly to Ha-Zefirah and worked on translations, which were not published until a later date. During this period, he began to publish long stories, as well as essays and articles. In 1920 he left Russia. During those unsettled times, having been mistaken for the Yiddish writer Baynush Steinman, a rumor was spread of his death, and he was eulogized in the Hebrew daily press and in literary periodicals, as well as in foreign-language publications. Steinman published "Teshuvah le-Maspidai, in Ha-Zefirah. Settling in Warsaw, he continued his regular contributions of stories, essays, and articles to Ha-Efirah and wrote for Der Moment. Steinman founded the monthly, Kolot, which provided a forum for young writers. It was also the first attempt to compare the thought of R. Nahman of Bratslav and Aaron Samuel Tamares with those of St. Francis of Assisi, Ibsen, and others. During his Warsaw period he published a collection of stories, a novel, a collection of articles, and two Yiddish books of essays and stories on the pogroms against Ukrainian Jews. In 1924, Steinman settled in Tel Aviv. He wrote for Haaretz and Ha-Olam and, together with other young writers, became active in the Writers’ Union. On behalf of the Union he edited its literary collection Mesibbah and, afterward, its organ Ketuvim. Here he continued his attempts to find a synthesis between ancient and modern Jewish literature and culture, and world literature. He published stories and novels, including Zugot and Duda’im, and collections of essays: Ha-Yesod ba-Hinnukh, Meshihiyyut, Be-Mizreh ha-Zeman, and Sha’ar ha-Vikku’ah. When Ketuvim closed, he became a columnist for Davar, also contributing regularly to literary periodicals and collections in Israel and abroad. Steinman claims that the primary function of a critical essay is to improve man’s view on life and art, and that therefore it is permissible and desirable to apply present-day views in studying works of the past. His memoirs contain a great deal of literary gossip. In his reconstruction of the “conversations, ” Steinman aims at giving a very subjective account of the conversants’ views rather than a stenographic recording of their actual remarks.
