This caught my eye:

Further reading: Abrams, Jack. J. Aybrams-bukh dos lebn un shafn fun an eygnartike perzenlikhkayt. [Jack Abrams Book, The Life And Works Of A Peculiar Personality] Mexico City: Centro Cultural Israelita de Mexico, 1956. 329pp [via YAB] If anyone has this, and wants to write a guest post based on it, please get in touch!”

The book is available at

Fighters for Anarchism has an article – “With Jack Abrams: imprisonment and deportation, a memoir by Mollie Steimer” – which is translated by Esther Dolgoff from the above book.
