The Melting Pot: Russian Jewish New York

Case 3: Writers: Mirra Ginsburg > Introduction



A distinguished translator from Russian and Yiddish, an active member of professional associations (American Translators Association, Authors Guild, Authors League of America, and PEN), a winner of numerous awards, and a devoted New Yorker, she bridged  three cultures: Russian, Yiddish, and American. New York's bookshelves would not have been the same without her.

Materials desplayed in this case are from the Mirra Ginsburg Papers donated to the Bakhmeteff Archive by Barbara Frenchi in 2002
