The celebrated Yiddish writer Chava Rosenfarb visited London in 1949. And, thanks to the Yiddish cultural historian David Mazower and to Goldie Morgentaler, Chava’s daughter, we have photographs of a gathering of London-based Yiddish writers and journalists assembled in what is possibly a café, in March 1949 to hear her give a reading of her poetry.
