Black-and-white illustrations. The top page corners in the Yiddish section are slightly creased. Very good. Nailebn describes itself as "the only Jewish-English magazine devoted to information on Biro-Bidjan". The city of Birobidzhan, established in 1931, became the administrative center of the Jewish Autonomous Oblast, Russia in 1934. It is located on the Trans-Siberian Railway near the border with China. Nailebn published articles, photographs, poetry, fiction, humor and satire conveying a comprehensive picture of life in the Jewish autonomous region. This issue celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the U.S.S.R., hailing the success of the Stakhanov movement and the development of the world's largest power project at Kuibyshev on the Volga while rejoicing that there is "No Vestige of Anti-Semitism in the U.S.S.R." The text is in Yiddish with an English version in the rear.
