Yiddish broadside 39" x 27,5" (poster). Folded 3 times. Advertisement for the play "Op Hoop van Zegen" (Trusting Our Fate in the Hands of God). It was written by the leading Jewish Dutch dramatist Herman Heijermans in 1901, who is an example for the Dutch classic of the social realist era. The director Janucz Zarins brought this play on stage at the Yiddish Theatre on Skolas 6 in Riga, Latvia. Designed by architects Edmund Trompovski and Paul Mandelstamm in 1913 the Jewish Theatre was opened in 1926. The four-act drama, titled in English as "The Good Hope", follows a conflict between a fisherman and his employer at the turn of the century, which affects the life of the whole community. Heijerman (1864-1924), who wrote this piece as a critique on capitalism, is credited with modernizing Dutch theatre and his plays are still staged today. While the the Nazis used it as an officers' club during WWII, the Soviet Union ventured the house of political education. In the early 1990's the property was returned to the Jewish community. Today the building is included in the list of State Protected Monuments and houses not only the Jewish Community, but a variety of many other Jewish public organizations such as the Jews in Latvia Museum (www.jewishmuseum.lv). Text in Yiddish and Latvian. Light Age-toning, red-color offsetting from folding poster, some wear from folding of poster at creases, small chips and a 4inch closed tear at middle crease.
