The Annual Else Lasker-Schüler Lecture

LBI Jerusalem

We invite you to the 6th Else Lasker-Schüler Annual Lecture on the topic of „Missed encounters: Else Lasker-Schüler, Leah Goldberg, and Zelda Mishkovsky at Cafe Zichel in Jerusalem, 1940s“

With the rise of the Nazis to power, the Jewish-German poet Else Lasker-Schüler, admired among cultured people in Germany, had to flee to Jerusalem. Having no livelihood and no knowledge of Hebrew, Lasker-Schüler spent her last days in Jerusalem as a beggar. Every day, she would come to the Zichel Cafe on King George Street, asking a different customer to pay for her. One day, the poet Leah Goldberg encountered her, a meeting she later wrote about.
