Holocaust survivor revives Jewish dialect by translating Greek epic

Nir Hasson / Haaretz
"Ladino is a spoken language. Suddenly I had to find words from realms that don't have words, like agriculture, seafaring, names of trees, etc." He found the words in Peretz's Hebrew-Ladino dictionary and in the Bible in Ladino, among other books. "I didn't make up any words. I have documentation for everything," he says.
