Avram Stencl was born in Poland; following the rise of Nazism, he immigrated to England in 1936 and settled in Whitechapel, where he remained for more than forty years. Here, he launched his career as a Yiddish poet and edited the journal 'Loshn un Lebn' (‘Language and Life’), which in August 1943 included an article about Jewish painters with illustrations by Jankel Adler and Josef Herman – the latter was also an occasional contributor to the journal.
