Esperanto, the world’s most successful constructed language, was created by Polish-Jewish ophthalmologist Ludwik Lejzer Zamenhof. Speakers of the language have developed their own culture, including literature, music, currency, and a flag. And each year on the founder’s birthday, Zamenhof Day is celebrated! Celebrated with books, poetry, and music, Zamenhof Day is the primary holiday of Esperanto culture. So in New York, the most multicultural, multilingual city in the world, we wish you a Happy Zamenhof Day!
