Night of the Murdered Poets
(טרויער־אַקאַדעמיע צום 12טן אויגוסט)
On August 12th, 1952, 13 Jews were murdered by the Soviet regime in the infamous Lubyanka Prison, including 5 Yiddish writers. It was the culmination of a years-long repression of Yiddish and Jewish culture. Each August 12th, Yiddish organizations around the world remember the Yiddish writers lost that night and earlier, as well as the other victims of Soviet repression.
