Summary"Khane Bushel Solow was a Yiddish poet. She was born in Slonim, Belarus in 1892 and emigrated to America in 1910. During her lifetime, she published over eighty poems in New York Jewish newspapers and was the author of two books: Meine Bleter (My Pages) and Gedikht (Verses). Her poetry encompasses a lifetime that began during the heyday of the shtetls of Eastern Europe and continued through the great migration of Jewish immigrants to America in the early twentieth century. In her poems, Khane memorialized her family and the life they led in Slonim before the war. She bore witness to World War II and the Holocaust, and to the society of Yiddish writers living in New York City in the first half of the 20th century." —Publisher
