WEST HARTFORD — In 1907, Sholem Asch wrote a play in Yiddish, "God of Vengeance," that changed his life and the world of theater. Ignoring the advice to burn the play and forget it, he saw his personal project performed across Europe to great acclaim.
Only when the drama crosses the pond to America does it incite controversy from Jews and others who view it as anti-Semitic.
