Yocheved Bat-Miriam (Zhelezniak) attended the Universities of Odessa and Moscow. Her first volume of poetry, published in 1932, was followed by an additional six volumes of poems published four years after she settled in Eretz Israel. The bulk of her poems were written between the two world wars and are set against the background of Jewish tragedy of this period, of her personal experiences as a child in Russia and of her experiences as a settler in Israel. In the 1948 War of Independence, her son Zuzik was killed and she never wrote again. Bat-Miriam was awarded the 1964 Bialik Prize and the 1972 Israel Prize.
