A klug tsu Columbus / A broch tsu Columbus.

A klug tsu Columbus or A broch tsu Columbus.
Literally- A curse on Columbus. (Broch is the same thing but a bit stronger than klug)

Expression used by Jewish immigrants in the early part of 20th century who felt they were not doing as well as they expected in their new country.

E.g.- A klug tsu Columbus for finding this godforsaken land where I have had to struggle and suffer.
