Avrom Sutzkever, Celebrated Poet,
to Be Honored Here on Thursday
A celebrated Yiddish poet liv-
ing in Israel, whose literary
career and adventures started
in Siberia, endured the Vilna
ghetto, and reached a climax at
Mount Sinai during Israel's 1956
campaign against the Egyptians,
will be the guest of honor at a
city-wide tribute in his honor
sponsored by the Detroit Israel
Histadrut Campaign next Thurs-
day evening at the Hayim Green-
berg Center on Schaefer.
Avrom Sutzkever, the partisan
fighter, will make Detroit one
of his first stops on a nation-
wide lecture tour as an emis-
sary of Histadrut. He was a
fighter in the Vilna ghetto,
where the remnants of 80,000
Lithuanian Jews held out against
overwhelming odds from 1941
Born in a small town near
Vilna in 1913, Sutzkever is the
scion of a renowned rabbinical
family. When he was scarcely
two years old, during the first
World War, the German army
burned his home town and the
Sutzkever family fled to Siberia
where they lived in the city of
Omsk. Sutzkever spent his early
childhood from two to nine years
of age, in the Siberian outpost.
He has vivid recollections of
that period, and composed his
first major poems in Yiddish on
the theme of that childhood. His
lyric poem, "Siberia," composed
in 1936, appeared in book form
in 1953 with an introduction and
illustrations by Marc Chagall.
In 1961, the United Nation's
Educational, Scientific and Cul-
tural Organization issued an
English translation with the
See Commentary, Page 2
Chagall, in his introductory
remarks, called Sutzkever "a
Yiddish poet who created lines
and forms with which he has
reached out to the greatest
heights of the Jewish soul . . .
whose poetry is not just Jewish;
it is Jewish poetry of a new
kind, modern in manner and
subject-matter, and free from
the usual limitations of our
poetry . . . his poetry appeals
to the eye, not only the in-
In September, when Sutzkever
celebrated his fiftieth birthday,
a special tribute was arranged
for him by the Hebrew Uni-
versity. Israel's President Zal-
man Shasar, who had just that
day given a state reception to
the King of Nepal, alluded to
the two receptions as of similar
stature in the eyes of the Israeli
people and government.
Sutzkever rescued large quan-
tities of Jewish literary and his-
torical works from the Vilna
ghetto before he himself escap-
ed that trap in September 1943.
Living in Israel, Mr. Sutz-
kever has full freedom Of writ-
ing in Yiddish.
The Sutzkevers have two
daughters living with them in
Israel, the older one now serv-
ing in the army.
Tribute chairman of the eve-
ning will be Rabbi Morris Adler.
A musical program has been
arranged under the direction of
Cantor David Bagley of Beth
Aaron Synagogue, who will be
accompanied by Mrs. Bella Gold-

rector of the Detroit Campaign,
