MOSCOW STATE YIDDISH THEATER
The collection is an important resource on the history of GOSET (the theater’s Russian acronym) and Soviet Yiddish culture. Comprising 581 items from the family archive of actors and troupe members Iustina Minkova and Solomon Zil’berblat, the holdings date mostly from the 1920s and 1930s and include photographs, playbills, posters, letters, and more, in Russian, Yiddish, Ukrainian, Hebrew, German, and French.
JUDAICA POSTERS
The 74 posters in this collection highlight several key aspects of and influences on Jewish life in the 20th century, from the ideologies and policies of the Communist regime in the USSR and the Nazi regime in occupied Europe, to the various forms of Jewish cultural production in the USSR and Mandate Palestine. The items include: Soviet propaganda posters (1917–1940), Soviet theater and concert posters (1924–1970), movie posters from the USSR and Mandate Palestine (1926–1932), and Yugoslav anti-Semitic propaganda posters (1941–1942).
LENINGRAD POSTCARDS
The collection consists of 1,329 illustrated and photo postcards, with many published and printed between 1941 and 1944 in besieged Leningrad, where, even in the worst conditions of the blockade, postcard production continued in full force. Portraits of heroic soldiers, imagery of partisan and combat life, sketches of the working and fighting Leningrad, and landscape images of the city’s architectural beauty provided inspiration to soldiers and civilians alike.
