Rare. The first book about the Jewish theatre in Moscow (GOSEKT) that was founded in 1919-1920 by Alexei Granovsky.

Significant part in the life of the theatre played the members of Kultur-lige (Kiev) like Marc Shagall who decorated the interior of the theatre. In this book the important evidences of the early days of the theatre are gathered. The illustrations in the book include the photos of the troop of the theatre, actors in significant roles, decorations (designed (designed by Robert Falk, Isaak Rabinovich, Alexander Tyshler and others). GOSEKT was closed down in 1948 after Solomon Mikhoels who was the head of it at the time was killed in Minsk by special services as a part of anti-Jewish repressions of late 1940s.
