Betsalel (Sasha) Kremer


K. was born in 1905 in Vilna, Polish Lithuania.

He completed a Yiddish-Polish gymnasium.

He was a long-time regisseur for the drama circle in Vilna and in the Vilna province.

His productions had great success throughout the wide theatre world especially -- as YeKhiel Burgin highlights -- it is worth mentioning that his production of "Der goylem oyf der linker zayt" (his parody of Leivick's "Golem"), various revue programs, Peretz Hirschbein plays, et al. His theatre activity stood on an entirely high level.

After the liquidation of the Vilna Ghetto, he was sent to Klooga, Estonia.

In the beginning of the German Jewish eradication, he was killed in Radoshkovitsh.

Sh. Katsherginski remarked in short:

"Betsalel Kremer -- Young actor, Estonia, 1944."


Sh. E. from David Rogow, Yekhiel Burgin and A. Aronson.
