MILBAUER, JOSEPH (1898–1968), poet. Born in Warsaw, Milbauer was raised in Brussels where, in 1914, he met shalom aleichem , some of whose works he later translated. He went to Paris in 1921. Milbauer's early verse collections were well received. During the 1930s he was for a time editor of the Univers Israelite, but his outspoken Zionist opinions brought him into conflict with the paper's directors, and he resigned. Milbauer fought in both world wars and was a prisoner of war but after some harrowing experiences arrived in Ereẓ Israel as an illegal immigrant in 1944. He headed the French desk at the keren ha-yesod , and was a co-founder of a French literary circle which developed into the Association des Amitiés Israël-France. Milbauer published several more volumes of poetry, often inspired by the landscape of Israel. His other works include translations of S.Y. Agnon , Ḥ.N. Bialik , and S. Tchernichowsky and the anthology Poètes yiddisch d'aujourd'hui (1936). -BIBLIOGRAPHY: C. Vigée, in: L'Arche, 134 (1968), 63–64. (Pascal Themanlys)
