Product Overview

The memoir of Gluckel of Hameln, widely viewed as one of the earliest major published works written by a woman, has become a classic. Born in the Hamburg ghetto in 1646, Gluckel presentas a compelling account of 17th-century Germany and its Jewish community. Gluckel''s aim in writing the memoir was to survive the long nights that tormented her after the death of her beloved husband, and to record a family history of her 12 children. The Life of Gluckel of Hameln is the only English translation of Gluckel''s sory from the original Yiddish. Widely regarded as the most accurate and complete translation available, it was out of print for many years until this reissue by JPS. Beth-Zion Abrahams, a British scholar, also wrote numerous scholary articles on English Jewry and Jewish authors.
