Subject: Lodz children's music
From: josephtoltz at me.com
I'm piecing together a small fragment of a children's musical play,
written in late 1943 in the Lodz Ghetto by Yiddish playwrights under the
direction of Dawid Bajgelman. The subject of the play was the stock
character in Yiddish fairytales, Gonter Kozak. Two of the writers of this
unknown work include Szymon Janowski and Abraham Cykiert (recently
deceased - my informant from Melbourne, Australia).
The project was run from a secret school called "Children for Children"
administered by a young couple called Markewicz), and the venue was
provided by a Mr. Glaser on Dworska Street numbers 10 and 16 in the Lodz
If anyone out there knows of the existence of this project, I would be
extremely interested to hear from them.
Many thanks in advance,
