“Bjulag-dagi” – Publikation in Judeo-Tatischer Schrift

Bjulag-dagi : (gornyj rodnik) - Бюлаг-даги : (горный родник)This reading primer in the spoken language of the so-called “Mountain Jews” was published in Baku in 1926 as part of a Soviet campaign to alphabetize the nationalities of the USSR in their own mother tongue. Since they were a Jewish population group, the Hebrew script was used to write the Judeo-Tati (Juhuri), an Iranian language.
