This anthology, a book of 232 pages, printed by the Narod Press in Whitechapel, was edited by Avrum Nochem Stencl, the Yiddish poet and writer, to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the modern settlement of Jews in Britain.

Avrum Nochum Stencl (pronounced Shtentsel) was known in his later years as the Yiddish poet of Whitechapel. He was born in Czelad, in Poland, in 1897,

and had a traditional orthodox education, learning at the Yeshiva at Sosnoviec, where his brother, Shlomo Stencl was Rabbi. In 1921 he emigrated to Germany, where he mixed in Jewish literary and Bohemian circles. He moved to London at the beginning of the war.  A. N. Stencl died in 1983.

In the pages below I have scanned a selection, including two major works by Stencl, In a small Village in Somerset, and Whitechapel.
