The famous Yiddish poet (among many other works, Yisroyl Partizan,
illustrated by William Gropper) wrote in English as Yuri Suhl,
probably best known for his must-read book, "They Fought Back:
The Story of the Jewish Resistance in Nazi Europe," as well as the
novels "One Foot in America" and "Cowboy On a Wooden Horse"
and the biography, "Ernestine Rose and the Battle for Human Rights,"
commissioned by and published with the aid of the Emma Lazarus Federation of
Jewish Women's Clubs -- formerly the Women's Section of the JPFO-IWO. Suhl was
also one of those who exposed (and condemned) the tendentious writing of Raul Hilberg
in "The Destruction of European Jews."
