Yiddish Theatre la Maud
Illustrations created by Zuni Maud for the Yiddish Forward newspaper, 1917-9.

PART 1: JANUARY TO APRIL 1917

 

Zuni Maud was a cartoonist-illustrator-satirist who created for a number of publications, one of which was the Yiddish Forward (Forverts) newspaper, from 1917-1919. Here are most all of his illustrations that appeared in the Forverts. In 1907 with other young intellectuals he founded the Yiddish magazine "Di Yungt" and later they started a satirical magazine, "Der Kibitzer." His drawings in these journals were one or more panels and were about Jewish life; his first comic story in Yiddish was in 1910. From 1916-1920 he was the entertainment section editor of Forverts, as well as a cartoonist for several other newspapers. In 1924, he joined friends Yosl Cutler and Jack Tworkov to be set and costume designers for Maurice Schwartz's production of Abraham Goldfaden's "Di Kishefmacherin." They created puppets for the show and decided to launch a puppet theatre ("Madjacot").
