This chapter focuses on Shmerke Kaczerginski, who was a familiar figure to Yiddish speakers worldwide for almost a decade following the Second World War. It discusses the publication of the Ondenk-bukh a year after Kaczerginski's death in 1954, which is a memorial volume commissioned, edited, and financed by a committee of his admirers in Buenos Aires. It also gathers fifty tributes to Kaczerginski, including several personal reminiscences that add telling details to his biography. The chapter talks about how Ondenk-bukh remains the best source for information on Kaczerginski's life and works even after several years since its publication. It looks at how Kaczerginski's first published writings talked about class struggle and the living conditions of Polish workers, and were submitted, presumably under a pseudonym, to the underground press.
