Mendele Personal Notices & Announcements

April 11, 2010

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;and 
write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has 
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.
Date: March 26, 2010
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,

Joseph Toltz
