Yiddish goes digital

An innovative new project is seeking Yiddish-speakers to help create an archive of journals and newspapers from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Two archival repositories - the Kheel Center for Labor-Management Documentation and Archives at Cornell University in the United States and the Modern Records Centre at the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom - are jointly digitizing more than 1,500 digitized pages from journals and newspapers originally written for working-class Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe
