writes about this:
has written the memoirs of Bertha Kalich, which
came out more personal, heymish and effeminate.
Both a Galitsainer, from Lemberg tsi derbay,
Rubinstein was able to write about the former
Lemberg, as the Second Avenue of his time. This
was given in "Tog."
R. also was a co-editor
of "Rumshinsky Book," published in New York in
1931 for Rumshinsky's fiftieth birthday.
R.'s sons Shlomo and
Bernie were in the radio industry.
On 29 November 1943
R. passed away in New York. In the editorial
article of the "Tog":
"..The death has
torn away from the Tog's family one of
their dear members of many years, Tsvi Hirsh
Rubinstein. ..one of those Yiddish journalists
who, from his profession, was able to make a
kind of art ...he was also a gritty Yiddish
newsman. ....he had a special sense for it,
which a Yiddish newspaper should give the
reader, both in details of the news, as in
articles, and generally reading material."
And M. Dantsis
"...In fact, Tzvi Hirsh Rubinstein passed
away, not in the week when a blood infection in
his brain had occurred, like a bullet and he
expired. In truth his death came to him two
years before. Then came the robber with his
shiny knife in the editorial of the "Tog," while
"Ruby" sat with the writers...now, as always,
like all the years of his newspaper career, over
his head in work ...I was just right there when
his face had suddenly turned into a fearful
grimace, and he halfway had placed his head on
the stool. He continued to live for the next two
years ....but Rubinstein, the newspaper man
already was dead."
