The Nathan Detroit of Warsaw

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, Eddy Portnoy uncovers the story of Urke Nachalnik a poor shtetl-dweller turned successful Warsaw kingpin turned popular memoirist and novelist of the criminal life. He died in 1942 in the Warsaw Ghetto uprising outside Warsaw. The Scroll’s lawyers want it to specify that it does not endorse law-breaking, even though it can sometimes be really, really cool.
