In Brief ...
The current year (2001) is outstanding for its remarkable dates in the history of hard-suffered Mame-Loshn in the former USSR and after its collapse. First of all it is the 75-th anniversary of the period when Yiddish was in full swing (1926-1936). The second date is younger. It is only 40. The period starting from 1961 can be called the second blossoming. It ends in 1991, from which the third period, the youngest, began. The latter is only 10 years old. It is the "fading" period of Yiddish against the revival of the overall Jewish culture in independent Ukraine since the USSR collapsed.
