Itzhak Fridman


F. was born in Lublin, Poland.

He was a goldsmith and a non-professional writer, a collaborator with "Hatsfirah" as a storyteller, also in Yiddish in the [zamlbikher], issued by A. M. Weisenberg. He came to Argentina in his early sixties, and it was hard for him [tsutsupusn] to the general environs, also to the writing world. People used to therefore seldom see him in the environs of Yiddish print.

Another drama "Ikh bashuldik" was published in [ber] and more rare in the Yiddish newspapers and journals.

He composed in "the Yiddish newspaper" a number of stories and (in Spanish translation) in "Lalus" and "Israel". For a certain time he also had collaborated at [khdush]-journal "New-Vort". During the latest times he was alone, and [mitarbetershaft] with others, writing several dramas, one of them, "Komediant fun politik" (with the assistance of Biberman and Tabakshneyder) in [tsugegreyt] a Spanish translation.

He also composed a drama "Di bagabte".

On 25 May 1935 F. passed away in Buenos Aires.
