Wikipedia, November 12, 2013 (Aharon Appelfeld (Hebrew: אהרן אפלפלד‎) (born February 16, 1932) is an Israeli novelist. Appelfeld is one of Israel's foremost living Hebrew-language authors, despite the fact that he did not learn the language until he was a teenager. His mother tongue is German, but he also speaks Yiddish, Ukrainian, Russian, English and Italian. With his subject matter revolving around the Holocaust and the sufferings of the Jews in Europe, he could not bring himself to write in German)
