Berl Tsimlikh
 


 

He was born in Warsaw where he acted in a dramatic circle. At the end of his twenties he went to Paris. He worked by day, and during the evening acted in a drama, afterwards joining "PIAT." He acted there in character roles, e.g. in the play "In polish oyf der keyt," by I.L. Peretz, "Der farkhishufte shnayderl," "Mentshn-aristokratn" and "Luft-prnsut" by Sholem Aleichem; "Boytre" by Moshe Kulbak, "Der toyber" by David Bergelson, "The Poor Kingdom" by H. Leivick, and "In shtreyk fun di shniter" by Ziskind Lev.

In 1942 when the Germans had an "elimination" of the Jews of Paris, he with his wife were taken into the ghetto, as also were their young son, and together with more than 10,000 Jews were taken to a death camp from where there was no return.


Sh. E. from Leib Lensky.
