Language was status in old Czernowitz.
The poor spoke only Yiddish,
Therefore Yiddish was strictly out,
Replaced by a German thay was a mockery,
But it was step in the right direction,

Then came Schiller ,Goethe. Bush
There were no public German schools,
Private schools were costly ,
Then we went to Rumania and found
Out that our Rumanian was not
that of Eminescu either.

I am still able to read,talk & write Yiddish but alas I am not able to
use it the environment has changed.
My father may he rest in peace wrote only Yiddish letter to me which I
still have.
I also have the book of poems by Mordechai Gebirtig "Meine Lieder "
also Psalms in Yiddish. I was brought up
on a Menu of Yiddish, German and felt richer for it.
