ROCHMAN, LEIB (1918–1978), Yiddish journalist and novelist. Born in Minsk Mazowiecki (Poland), he began his career writing for Warsaw's Yiddish daily, Varshever Radio. His diary of the perilous years 1943–44 was published in Paris as Un in Dayn Blut Zolstu Lebn ("And You Should Live in Your Blood," 1949). In 1950, he settled in Jerusalem, where he worked on the Yiddish broadcasts of Israel radio and as a correspondent for the New York daily, Forverts. His novel Mit Blinde Trit Iber der Erd ("With Blind Steps across the Earth," 1969) deals with the wanderings of Jews through Europe before reaching Israel. -BIBLIOGRAPHY: M.
