Sholem Asch

a.k.a. Sholom Asch

Author Code: OSHA

Born: Nov. 1, 1880 - Kutno, Poland

Died: Jul. 10, 1957 - London, England

Educated at the Kutno Hebrew school, Asch received a traditional Jewish education. He taught himself German and was very well-read. In 1900, after having relocated to Warsaw, Asch began writing stories in Yiddish, publishing his first, Moyshele, in the journal Der Jud. In 1903 he married Mathilde Shapiro, daughter of the poet Menahem Shapiro. He published his first play, Mitn Shtron (With the Current) in 1904. In 1908, he visited Palestine for the first time, then traveled to America the following year, spending over a year there. When World War I began in 1914, Asch settled in New York and became a regular contributor to Forverts, the most popular Yiddish newspaper in America at the time. He became a naturalized American citizen and helped to found the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC). In 1916, he published Motke the Thief which was well-received. Following the war, he returned to Europe under the auspices of the JDC on a fact-finding mission to Lithuania. He returned to Poland in 1923 with a solid reputation in literary circles and during the 1930's was very productive and often controversial in his subject matter. In 1938, he again visited Palestine and from there returned to America because of the threat of war following Hitler's rise to power. He lived in Israel near Tel Aviv for the last two years of his life. He died during a trip to London. His many works include God of Vengeance (1907),Mary (1917), Kiddush ha-Shem (1919), Death Sentence (1924), God's Captives (1933), The Mother (1933), The Nazarene (1939), Children of Abraham (1942), East River (1946), Salvation (1951) and The Prophet (1955).
