“In production just as German tanks rolled into Poland, this bittersweet Yiddish fable is no Fiddler on the Roof Projecting the lessons of the past into an uncertain present, Schwartz's adaptation of Aleichem's story offered little comfort for audiences of the time.”
- The Museum of Modern Art, New York (2008 Screening)

“With all due respect to Zero Mostel and Topol in Fiddler on the Roof, it was Maurice Schwartz, the great Yiddish actor/director, who first showed Tevye the Dairyman in his full light as a mensch for all seasons. A rare opportunity to see Schwartz in what may have been his most magnificent role."
-Judy Stone, San Francisco Chronicle
