This chapter examines works published by the Library of Jewish Writers. The Library of Jewish Writers has become an excellent means of popularizing Yiddish culture among Polish readers. Through this great literature, consciousness of the ties binding the two peoples living on the same land reaches the reading public, and the various stereotypes and legends that have arisen in circumstances of ignorance can be overcome. There can be no doubt as to the worthy contribution of the publishers in Wrocław. The majority of these books were translated by that indefatigable popularizer of Yiddish culture Michał Friedman, who has translated many books for other publishers as well.

Keywords:   Wrocław, Library of Jewish Writers, Yiddish literature, Polish translations, Michał Friedman, Yiddish culture, Polish readers
