Dovid Bergelson



Dovid Bergelson (12 August 1884 – 12 August 1952) was a Yiddish language writer. Ukrainian-born, he lived for a time in Berlin, Germany. He moved back to the Soviet Union when Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany. He was ultimately executed during an antisemitic campaign against "rootless cosmopolitans".

Bergelson is best remembered for his moody, Yiddish fiction set in turn-of-the-century Europe. In a series of novels and short stories, Bergelson explores the social and psychological worlds of European Jews: his early work deplores the loss of commitment in the shtetl, or village, while his later work promotes the possibilities of Communism.
