about

"Jeffrey Veidlinger relates a fascinating and little-known piece of history.... [He] distills a remarkable amount of research into a pithy, well-turned account that will interest readers of cultural and political history." -Publishers Weekly

Drawing from newly available archives, Jeffrey Veidlinger uses the dramatic story of the Moscow State Yiddish Theater, the premiere secular Jewish cultural institution of the Soviet era, to demonstrate how Jewish writers and artists were able to promote Jewish national culture within the confines of Soviet nationality policies.

Published with the generous support of the Lucius N. Littauer Foundation.

Jeffrey Veidlinger is Associate Professor of History and Jewish Studies and Associate Director of the Borns Jewish Studies Program at Indiana University.
