History / Biographical
Born in 1897 in Lodz, Poland, Haim Leib Fuchs was at the center of its literary life, which he described in a number of essays (e.g.,Dos Yidishe Literarishe Lodzh in Fun Noentn Over,3 (1957), 189- 284). During World War I, Fox was a labour conscript in Germany. After a brief period in the Bund, he joined the Labour Zionist movement and lived in Palestine, 1936-1938. During World War II he was in the Soviet Union (1940-1946), then returned to Lodz. From 1948 to 1953 he lived in Paris, and from 1953 in New York. Fox wrote for many periodicals, and contributed over 3,000 articles to the Leksikon fun der Nayer Yidisher Literatur. A poet of intense religious and national feeling, he published four volumes of verse: Dorshtike Lemer (1926), Zingt Mir di Velt (1936), Sho fun Lid (1951), and Di Teg Neygn di Kep (1969)
