Goldie Morgentaler is Professor of English at the University of Lethbridge. She is the translator from Yiddish to English of much of Chava Rosenfarb’s work, including Rosenfarb’s epic Holocaust novel “The Tree of Life: A Trilogy of Life in the Lodz Ghetto”. Her translation of Rosenfarb’s book of short stories, “Survivors: Seven Short Stories”, won a Canadian Jewish Book Award and the Modern Language Association’s Memorial Prize in Yiddish Studies. She is also the editor, most recently, of a collection of Rosenfarb’s essays called “Confessions of a Yiddish Writer” published by McGill-Queens University Press in 2019. This collection won a 2019 Jewish Canadian Literary Award.
