"Men Without Eyes: Part 5," one of Yiddish radio's most successful melodramas.

At the close of last week's episode, Aaron, Betty's handsome blind husband, was informed that his sight could be cured by Uncle Doctor Hans Nussbaum, the great eye doctor, recently arrived from Vienna. What will happen now that Aaron can see his wife's grizzly, burnt face? Find out in the concluding episode of Men Without Eyes.*

Note: This week's recording is among the most damaged in the Yiddish Radio Project collection. We've included it in this series because we trust that the difficulty of listening is compensated for by the uniqueness of the material. We hope you agree.

*Men Without Eyes may have continued after this episode, but no other recordings of the series survive.
