N-Farband, 1917-1960; Jewish publications in the Soviet Union, 1917-1960. Compiled and arranged by Y. Y. Cohen; with the assistance of M. Piekarz; introductions by Y. Slutski and Kh. Shmeruk; edited by Kh. Shmeruk. Annotated bibliography consisting of 4, 152 entries. The editor, Chone Schmeruk (1921–1997) , was a "historian of Yiddish literature and Ashkenazic Jewry. Khone Shmeruk was born and raised in Warsaw, where he studied in a modern heder and in the Krinski secondary school before beginning studies at the University of Warsaw and the YIVO Institute. In the latter part of his career, he was instrumental in renewing Jewish studies in Poland. From 1939 to 1946, Shmeruk was a refugee in the USSR. He went from there to a displaced persons camp in Stuttgart, and in 1949 immigrated to Israel. He studied in the Yiddish department at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem under Dov Sadan and in the department of Jewish history with Ben-Zion Dinur, Yits? Ak Baer, and Israel Halpern, who directed Shmeruk’s dissertation on Jewish settlement in Belorussia from 1918 to 1932, for which he earned a doctorate in 1961. For many years Shmeruk was head of the Department of Yiddish at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and in that framework he founded a belles lettres series in 1969 (titled Sifrut Yidish [Yiddish Literature]) and a series of monographs in 1986 (Yidish—Mekorot u-me? Karim [Yiddish—Texts and Studies]) . He laid the foundations for the Yiddish Press catalog (Index of Yiddish Periodicals; IYP) , and for other collections and recordings, including a bibliography of Yiddish books printed between 1534 and 1750. He also initiated and established the Center for Research and Documentation of East European Jewry (1956) and the Center for Research on the History and Culture of Polish Jews at the Hebrew University (1983) , directing the latter for nine years and forming a model for a similar center, established at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków in 1986. In addition, Shmeruk served as a visiting professor at the University of Warsaw and taught at the University of Lódz.
