Description
In Yiddish. Translated Summary: Article describing how he sold 250 copies of Naylebn in less than two months. "I believe," Zinger writes, "in the power of the printed word, above all at this time." Dos Naye leben was originally associated with Dr. Chaim Zhitlowsky: this Naylebn (Nayelebn) was a publication of IKOR (ICOR), the Association for Jewish Colonization in the Soviet Union, Gezelshaft far Yiddishe Kolonizatyse in Ratn-Farband. The word "Shlogler" translates to "Stakhanovite", a Soviet worker who is exceptionally hardworking and productive. פאַרשפּרייטער "farshpreyter" indicates a distributer or promoter. Based on Singer's correspondence with Rubin Saltzman, his preferred address after September 1942 is 2007 Union Street, Brooklyn, New York.

Most likely written towards the end of World War II
