Alter Kacyzne His parents' poverty made it impossible for their son to receive the mixture of traditional and secular education that so many Yiddish writers drew upon in their writing After his father's death, when Kacyzne was 14, his favorite uncle took him on as an apprentice photographer. This was to be the main source of Kacyzne's livelihood for his entire life. As a photographer, Kacyzne traveled around Poland, Palestine, and North Africa, capturing incredible images of Jewish life. Kacyzne became widely recognized by the Warsaw literary scene as the "successor" to Peretz. He consistently published new and engaging work: essays, short stories, plays, as well as translations of world literature into Yiddish Kacyzne was an editor of numerous literary journals and eventually the editor, writer, and publisher of his own bimonthly magazine, My Talking Film, in which he printed essays on current events, art, and culture, as well as his own plays, screenplays, and translations of world literature.
