Book News Annotation:

Written in 1958 and published in German as Kindheit: Fragment einer Autobiographie in 2003, the memoir of poet Moses Rosenkranz (1904-2003) contains recollections of a rural childhood, from birth to age 15, lived among Jews, Ukrainians, Romanians, Poles, and Germans in the Austro-Hungarian province of Bucovina. This English translation by Dollenmayer (German, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Massachusetts) makes the work available to a broader audience.

marjef, March 10, 2008 (view all comments by marjef)
A difficult text excellently translated. Moses Rosenkranz was a poet, and his quirky way of recalling his childhood reflects his poetical sensitivity.
Rosenkranz' childhood was afflicted with poverty and disrupted by the upheavals of World War I and its aftermath. His autobiography provides insight into the kind of Jewish life that is seldom documented: close to the land, physical, and disorderly.
