Jewish Theater under Stalinism: Moscow State Jewish Theatre (GOSET)

In their time, the Moscow State Jewish Theater (GOSET) and the affiliated Moscow State Jewish Theater School (MGETU) were outstanding phenomena. GOSET was a pioneer enterprise that merged Yiddish art with Soviet ideology and avant-garde ideas. The character of the theater was determined by a galaxy of outstanding Jewish writers, actors, and artists of the 20th century, namely Marc Chagall, Aleksandr Falk, Peretz Markish, Solomon Mikhoels, and many others.

Location of Originals

Originals are held by the Russian State Archive of Literature and Art (RGALI) in Moscow. Fond 2307 (2 opisi) and 2308 (1 opis΄)

Scope and Content

The collection includes the archive of GOSET (RGALI, Fond 2307) and the archive of the Theatrical School of the State Jewish Theater (MGETU) (RGALI, Fond 2308). This collection of archival documents from the RGALI contains material that describes the history of the Soviet culture and Theater, Jewish Theater, Jewish avant-garde art and the Kremlin's policy toward Jewish society and culture from 1919 until the early 1950s. The collection contains correspondence with ministries, state organizations, authors, administration, plays, notes ( with comments of censors) and the personal archives of Alexei Granovskii, Solomon Mikhoels, and other actors and writers. Other materials that can be found in this collection are press reports from Soviet and foreign periodicals about the theater and its tours in Europe, posters, drawings, theater programs and documents about other Jewish theaters.
