Naum Zigel
 

Details about his origins are unknown.

He was not an actor, but an important administrator for the Yiddish State Theatre "Gezkult" in the Ukraine.

When the Nazi beasts in 1941 attacked the Soviet Union, he was not involved in even one minute of the violence, but volunteered to perform for the Soviet Army during the struggle.....the hate for the people, and on 14 January 1942 he fell in a battle against the Nazis.
