Nyu York [New York]: Der "Frayhayt" 1939. Item #42634

8vo; 1st edition. Original Wrappers bound into publisher's cloth. 4to, 64 pages each issue (x 10 issues, = 640 pages total). 29 cm. In Yiddish. Yiddish title translates as, "Communist Monthly Magazine."
Holocaust-era publication. Final volume, complete, covering the defining year of 1939. Monthly magazine, running from Merts (March) 1926 to October 1939, published by the Frayhat, the Yiddish Communist daily run by the Jewish branch of the International Workers Order and closely aligned (but not identical, especially on Palestine) with the Communist Party. Volume 7 was repeated in numbering (for 1933 and 1934).
Jewish Communists founded an “earnest theoretical journal for Marxism-Leninism,” Der Hamer, under the editorship of Leon Talmy (original name, Leyzer Talmonovitsky) in 1926 (“Yidishe Prese in Amerika,”Icor yor-bukh - ICOR Year Book 1932, 193 [Yiddish section]). Israel Ber Bailin became editor of Der Hamer, taking over from Talmy when the latter left for the Soviet Union, and remaining as editor until that journal was discontinued in 1939.
“The Yiddish-speaking community played a prominent role in leftist political activism in the U.S. during the early twentieth century. Der Hammer (The Hammer) was a Yiddish-language monthly magazine associated with Morgen Freiheit (Morning Freedom), a communist daily established in New York City in 1922.” (MetMuseum.org: "Art for the Millions: American Culture and Politics in the 1930s," Sept.–Dec. 2023, which included issues of Der Hamer).
