Book Reviews: Jewish Theater In Vienna

What was, what is the role of Jewish Theater in Austria? From 1900 to 1938, Vienna had a small but extremely active Jewish theater scene that brought cabaret, musical theater, operettas, short works, and full-length dramas to the stage in Yiddish, Hebrew, and German. Yiddish ensembles such as the Jüdische Bühne, which existed from 1908 to 1938, and the ambitious Jüdische Künstlerspiele brought together actors from all over Eastern Europe performing mainly operettas, melodramas, and Yiddish revues in which not only song and dance, but also the problems of the day played an important role.

Book Reviews: Schlepping Through the Alps

Schlepping Through the Alps : My Search for Austria's Jewish Past with Its Last Wandering Shepherd: Hans Breuer, Austria's only wandering shepherd, is also a Yiddish folksinger.

Sometimes he even gives concerts in historically anti-Semitic towns, showing slides of the flock as he belts out Yiddish ditties.
