S. was a Bialystoker. He was a prompter in the Yiddish
theatre, for most of the time in the "shund" theatres.
He was the husband of the actress Liza Salman, who left
him for actor Julius Adler.
During the Second World War,
when the Soviets had held Bialystok, S. became
requisitioner (of [theatre] properties -- ed.)
for the local State Yiddish Theatre. Later, through the
Nazis, he advanced within the ghetto, where he, together
with his and Liza's daughter, was killed.
According to a second
version, he, along with a number of Yiddish actors were
relocated to Kirgizye, where he became sick and in 1942
died in the Tak-mak ghetto.
