SHOLEM PATRON (1906-1943)
            He was born in Lodz, Poland.  Until age twelve, he studied in religious elementary school, later becoming a textile worker.  Until WWII he lived in Lodz, and he was active there in the Bund, in his trade union, in the “Kultur-lige” (Culture league), and in the great library there.  He contributed to Lodzher veker (Lodz alarm) (1926-1932), in which, aside from reports on the unions, he published accounts, sketches, reportage pieces, and impressions of poor and laboring life in the Lodz region.  He also wrote under such pen names as Sh. P.  He died of hunger in the Lodz ghetto.
