Biographical/Historical Information

Hayim Nahman Bialik (January 9, 1873 - July 4, 1934) was one of the pioneers of modern Hebrew poetry. In 1924 he moved to Tel Aviv, where he became a celebrated literary figure and ultimately came to be recognized as Israel's national poet.

The Hebrew and Yiddish poet, writer, essayist, literary critic, and journalist, David Frischmann (born 1859 in Zgierz, now Poland; died 1922 in Berlin) was one of modern Jewry's first major writers.

The prominent Moscow artist Leonid Osipovich Pasternak (1862-1945) was born in Odessa. He emigrated to Berlin in 1921, the same year as the Hebrew poet Bialik.
