I'm pleased to announce that the Stanford University Libraries have digitized a complete set of the rare (and fragile) avant-garde Yiddish literary and artistic journal Yung-Idish. All three issues were published in Lodz, 1919, and the digitized versions are found at the following URLs:
For background on the Yung-Idish (or: Yung-yidish) group, see the entry in the YIVO Encyclopedia
"The founding of Yung-yidish, the first Yiddish artistic avant-garde group in Poland
, grew out of a meeting in 1918 between poet Moyshe Broderzon
and a group of visual artists centered around Yitskhok Broyner, Yankl Adler
, and Marek Szwarc. Eventually, the group included some 20-odd members including Yitsḥak Katzenelson
, Yekhezkl-Moyshe Nayman, and Hershele, as well as younger people discovered by the group, such as the artist Henekh Bartshinski and the writers Elimelekh Shmulevitsh, Khayim Leyb Fuks, and Yisroel Shtern
Yung-Idish was also the subject of a scholarly monograph by the Polish art historian Jerzy Malinowski: Grupa "Jung Idysz" i żydowskie środowisko "Nowej Sztuki" w Polsce, 1918-1923. Warszawa: Polska Akademia Nauk, Instytut Sztuki, 1987.
In addition, I see that there is a Facebook page
devoted to the group:
Stanford's set of Yung-Idish is part of the Ezra Lahad Collection, which was acquired by Roger Kohn for Stanford in 1998. The issues, on crumbling thin cardboard stock, were painstakingly conserved by the Stanford Libraries' professional conservators in 2012, prior to their digitization.
