Book Donation of Margo Paran

Margo Paran was born in 1946 in Kadaň, Czechoslovakia. Subsequently, her family emigrated to Israel where as an adult she became an established painter and poet. There have been several exhibitions of her artwork in the Czech Republic, including one in her hometown of Kadaň. In 2010, in Kadaň, she had a poetry reading: her verses also featured in a local Poetry Jukebox alongside other literary texts associated with the city.

Moreover, some poems have been translated into Czech and appeared in a volume entitled And I Saw. This translation was undertaken by Jiřina Šedinová, a prominent translator of modern Israeli literature, as part of a literary seminar with students of Hebrew studies at the Faculty of Arts, Charles University, Prague. Margo Paran donated this poetry collection and several other books to the National Library of the Czech Republic.
