    Mikhail Y. Pinchevskiy
    Mikhail Pinchevskiy was born in 1894 in Telenesti, Bessarabia (Moldova), and received a traditional Jewish education. In 1913 he discontinued his studies in the Odessa Yeshiva and left for Argentina. His first book of poetry was published in Yiddish in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1918. He left Argentina for the Soviet Union in 1926 and settled in Kharkov (now Kahrkiv), Ukraine, where he published several poems, including "Bessarabia" and "Doyna." Mikhail Pinchevskiy was arrested in 1938 as a "spy" and spent 11 months in prison. In 1951 Pinchevskiy was again arrested. He was released in 1954 and died in 1955 in Kiev, Ukraine.
