"How I found out that I was dead" by Rudolph Zaslavsky, undated
Scope and Contents
This small series appears to have fragmentary documents from at least two original YIVO Archives collections created in Vilna during the prewar period. These are the Esther Rachel Kaminska Theater Museum Archive and the Records of the Jewish Actors Union of Warsaw. The series has only 10 folders and includes a colorful Yiddish language memoir of an actor, Hersh Amesia, who joined Goldfaden’s troupe; an actor’s membership card; the libretto of a Yiddish operetta; and an actor’s theater contract.
