Description

[Note from typewritten tape log inside box:] Michoel sings a nigun, which he recalls having heard during World War I, when he was a refugee in Poland. [one listener in 2016 recognizes this as a Lubavich tune]

Michoel Yudelevitch, Sept. 1, 1966. A younger brother of Avreml Yudin [aka Avrom Yudin], who is well represented in this collection, had not seen his brother Michoel for 40 years! Now, in 1966, Michoel came to visit from Santiago, Chile, where he has been living since 1936. The two brothers recall a number of nigunim, which they knew together in childhood. It is interesting that on some, they now differ....(They were from a Koydenover home). [Handwritten note:] They were 4 brothers.
