Mendel Rosenbusch: Tales for Jewish Children - John Burden


Tomorrow night a unique book is being launched in Charlottetown. Mendel Rosenbusch: Tales for Jewish Children has had quite a life even before it's launch. The stories were originally written in 1929 in German by Ilse Weber who was gassed in Auschwitz in 1944. The book surfaced in 1998 in Santiago Chile and the people who found the book translated the stories into English. Enter Jim Munves who lives in Charlottetown and operates Bunim and Bannigan Publishers. He got Island artist John Burden to do the illustrations - and John stopped by to talk about the project.
