Joshua, you forgot to mention that Yermye Hescheles is a poet. That is how
he is primarily known in the Yiddish world. He basically went into
seclusion once he retired in the early 70s. He was a journalist for the
Tog/Morgn Zhurnal from the 40s to the 60s, but I believe that was his "day
job", and poet was/is his "real" job. He is an amazing source of
information and insight, may he be well till 120. - Itzik
