Vienna: [Der Kval](1920-1921). 1st edition. Bound in Period boards with all original paper covers bound in, tall 8vo, 32 pages per issue [total of 288 pages here]. In Yiddish, with "Kritik" in dramatic modernist typeface. Moshe Zilberg (1884-1942) "was living in Vilna where he was arrested for belonging to the Bund (1912) and sat in a prison cell together with Dovid Eynhorn. After being freed from prison, he was forced to leave Russia. Until WWI he lived in Cracow and Lemberg. Over the years 1918-1923, he lived in Vienna where he was a Hebrew teacher and one of the editors of the publishing house of "Der kval" (The source) . He was also editor of the monthly journal Kritik (Critic) --ten issues appeared, February 1920-April 1921--around which assembled the writers: Moyshe Grosman-Tsimerman, Mendl Zinger, Meylekh Ravitsh, Dr. Meylekh Khmelnitski, and A. M. Fuks, among others. In 1923 he returned to Vilna. He subsequently served as co-editor (with N. Mayzil) of Literarishe bleter (Literary leaves) in Warsaw (1926) , and he became an internal contributor to Ekspres (Express) in Warsaw--first issue, January 3, 1927. At the beginning of WWII (September 1939) , he escaped from Warsaw to Bialystok, later settled in Vilna, suffered enormously from want, made several unsuccessful attempts to save himself from the Nazis, and then was murdered in Ponary.... Zilberg had a deep understanding and stern attitude toward artistic literature. He would revise and polish his stories, and out of necessity did not have sufficient time to concentrate on his own original creations; his writing talent was used primarily on translations. Falling strongly under the influence of Perets's struggle for national progress and against assimilation, he wrote his series of articles entitled: "Vos ikh hob aykh tsu zogn" (What I have to say to you) , running in several issues of Kritik; the articles aroused a strong reaction among younger writers with whom he remained in close contact for many years. " Additionally, Moyshe Gross (Moshe Gross-Zimmermann) "was a cofounder of M. Zilburg's monthly magazine Kritik (Critic) , in which he published a series of articles entitled 'Form-problemen in der yidisher literatur' (Problems of form in Yiddish literature) " (Translated from article by Zalmen Reyzen in Yidishe Leksikon, vol. 1) .
