Pour Out Thy Wrath is a compilation of short stories that have been translated from Yiddish by Bella Szwarcman-Czarnota. The author, Lamed Shapiro, was a Jewish writer who was previously unknown in Poland. He was originally from Ukraine and began his literary career in Warsaw. Later, he moved to New York and Los Angeles, where he spent the rest of his life.  The collection of his short stories is being published in Poland for the first time. Shapiro’s stories cover difficult topics such as Jewish pogroms and relationships with neighbours, as well as universal themes like love and loneliness, particularly in the context of relationships between men and women.
