The Kiev publishing house Duh i Litera (“Spirit and Letter”) published a book in Ukrainian titled “Georgy Melsky’s Kievan Jewish theater Mazltov in the memoirs of its participants.” The book’s editor, Svetlana Simakova, compiled the memories of people who participated in this professional stage collective. This theater performed in Ukraine’s capital in Yiddish from 1988 to 1995. Its first production was Sholem Aleichem’s play The Bloody Hoax known in its stage version as It’s Hard to be a Jew. The book is illustrated with photographs of actors, stage scenes and posters.
