He Must Go on, He Can’t Go on, He’ll Go on

Everything was doomed [in 1943]: [Yankev Glatshteyn’s] people, his tradition, its language, his artistic freedom, his chances of contributing to a continuing literature. Even his awesome responsibility as the chronicler of the last days of Eastern European Jewry was infused with an ironic futility: [he would write about it] but who would read it?  

–Janet R. Hadda, Yankev Glatshteyn
