Scope and Contents

Scrapbook, apparently kept by Shor himself, of a serialized memoir, "Fun Lemberg biz Filadelfya"; and a typescript of the same memoir (68 pp.), including an introduction by A. Frumkin. The clippngs are dated 16 April to 2 July 1933; on the last page of the scrapbook is an inscription from Shor to the YIVO Institute in Vilna. The installments represented appear to be incomplete, since the last one refers to a continuation to come. According to Zylbercweig (IV: 2918), the memoir was published in the Philadelphia newspaper Idishe velt, in 1933-1934. 2 items.
