burning of chometz before
Passover, or simply
"Pesach," Passover, when it
is forbidden to see or find the
forbidden chometz in one's
possession.
The "shtarke-layt" con-
trolled access to the better
work assignments by
dispensing "protektsia," or
protection or favoritism,
which was often called vita-
min P, for it was an unseen
but vital nutrient.
In political discussions,
there were numerous slang
substitutions. Germans were
Ashkenazim, Yekes,
"Daledn" (D's) or "Indikes,"
or turkeys. Hitler was the
"kapelushmakher," the hat
maker, "shmirer," or
painter, Haman, "Ashme-
day," or Asmodeus, "yemach
shemo," or "may his name
be obliterated," and
"kvitsher," or screamer.
Joseph Goebbels was
"Yosele Roshele," or Joey
the little villain, "der bal
darshn," or preacher,
"fishke," after the crippled
character in Mendele
Mocher Seforim's novel
Fishke der Krumer, or the
anagram BEYGELE.
Hitler's deputy or Stellver-
treter Hermann Goering
was known among the Baltic
Jews as the "gezaltsener,"
or salted herring, while
Polish Jews referred to him
as the "drekfartreter," ,or
garbage deputy.
In the Bavarian camps,
Heinrich Himmler was
"shomayim," or heavens. In
the same camps, the English
were the "machetonim," or
in-laws, referring to the
British control of Palestine;
President Franklin
Roosevelt was "Feter
Ruven," or Uncle Reuben;
America was "Mume Mehr,"
or Aunt More; and the Rus-
sians were "reyshlekh," or
R's.
For inmates of the German
concentration camps, air-
raid sirens brought good, if
deadly tidings. Bombers
were "feygelech," or birdies,
delivering explosive
"kneydlech," or matzah
balls. Soviet planes were
"royte hiner," or red hens.
To Vilna Jews, a bombing
was a "remont," or
renovation.
Israel Kaplan was one of
the "sheyris hapleyte," the
surviving remnant of Euro-
pean Jewry. Even after leav-
ing Germany, he continued
to gather examples of ghetto
and camp Yiddish slang,
which he published in an
augmented edition of his
pioneering little book of
1949. The book appeared in
Tel Aviv in 1982 under the
same title. El
