Tsukunft publishing operations in Poland after 1945

ABSTRACT. When resuming its activities in postwar Poland, Tsukunft’s aim was first and foremost to reconstruct its pre-1939 structures, including the renewal of its publishing operations. After 1945, the youth organization revived the publishing house SIB and its main press organ, “Yugnt Veker”. The main purpose of these efforts was to bring back the Yiddish language, to mark its presence, and to resume work on the “Jewish street”. Attempts were also made to attract new members and sympathizers for the Bund’s youth organization. Brochures published by SIB and articles in “Yugnt Veker” provided information on the history of Tsukunft and the Bund, while periodicals also described the activities of regional Tsukunft organizations, were a platform for the political views of members of the youth organization on the current political situation of Jews, and polemicized against the Zionists.
