Gift of Ruth Schwarz
Id no. 201.93, Poster, Yiddish, French
The poster advertises Hakl-Bakl's ?David and Goliath? and ?The Temptation? with set designs by artist Marc Chagall, artistic direction by Simche Schwarz, and music by Ruth and Simche Schwarz.
The Yiddish language Hakl-Bakl puppet theater was established by Ruth and Simche Schwarz in Paris after the war.

Simche Schwarz wrote Temptation based on a Jewish folktale. A beautiful girl cajoles a pilgrim into giving her his cart of holiday gifts.
