|German term or phrase: Pechvogel|
|Idiomatic expression for an unlucky person. Does there exist a catchy expression in English?|
This is another word, if you mean "der sprichwörtliche Pechvogel".
This is a yiddish word, and it means "poor thing" or a timid, meek or ineffectual person. To be used only in a certain context.
