Tsemach Shabad

  Mėsinių/Dysnos     more than a year ago

A statue of Vilnius-born Tsemach Shabad (1864-1935), famous for his tireless political and social activities as well as being the leader of the city’s branch of the Folkspartei, or Jewish People’s Party, stands in the territory of the former ghetto, his posture conveniently allowing passers by a quick embrace and selfie. Worth a look if you’re in the area or are particularly interested in the Russian children’s author and translator Kornei Chukovsky (1882-1969), who based his infamous character Dr. Ouch on Shabad, the identity of the girl holding the cat who accompanies Shabad remains a mystery.
