Lexicon of the Yiddish Theatre
BIOGRAPHIES OF THOSE WHO WERE ONCE INVOLVED IN THE Yiddish THEATRE;
aS FEATURED IN zALMEN zYLBERCWEIG'S  "lEKSIKON FUN YIDISHN TEATER"


THE UNPUBLISHED VOLUME 7


 

Z. was the editor or author of more than thirty books relating to Yiddish culture and history. The first volume of his opus, the "Lexicon of the Yiddish Theatre," his most famous work, was published in 1931; Volume 6 was issued in 1969.  as Z. passed away in 1972, and the hopes of publishing this last volume faded until now. Volume 5, which was published after World War II, is the Lexicon's "martyr's edition." It consists mostly of biographies of those who were killed during World War II by the Nazis and their collaborators.

Volume 7 was never published until the Museum of Family History put the extant pages online several years ago, with the permission of the Zylbercweig estate. Here you can read some of Museum's English translations from this volume.

First here is a table listing the original, Yiddish-language biographies that can be found in the extant pages of Volume 7. The biographies for which there are English translations are listed in boldface. Below that is an alphabetical listing of those biographies that still remain untranslated.

To read the English translations that the Museum has completed for this volume (half of the 124 biographies in total), see the table at the bottom of this page and click on the link to the biography you wish to read.
