Rebecca Rovit, Alvin Goldfarb
Johns Hopkins University Press, 1999 - History - 350 pages
Theatrical Performance during the Holocaust collects for the first time critical essays, memoirs, and primary source materials -- many never before available in English -- relating to the surprising history of Jewish drama, cabaret, music, and opera under the Third Reich. These documents offer the remarkable account of a phenomenon that existed across Nazi Europe -- in German cities, in Eastern European ghettos, and in concentration camps.
