Kalman Salman


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.


M. E. from Zalman Koleshnikov.
