Aaron Aleksandrov
 

 

A. was born in November 1903 in Vilna, Polish Lithuania, into a well-to-do family, in which he also heard the Russian actors Morozov and Aleksandrov. After school he would stage and act in the school productions. Not regarding the resistance of his parents, he later actively participated in amateur productions. In 1918 he entered into the Yiddish dramatic studio under the direction of Avraham Slabodsky.

 In 1919 he acted as an "amateur" in the role of "Dobtshinsky" in Gogol's "Revizor" and through this became excited by the attention of the actor Sandler, who took him into a professional itinerant troupe.

In 1923 he immigrated to Buenos Aires, and there acted for two months under the direction of Marinov, and then, in the span of three years, with Thomashefsky, Joseph Schoengold, L. Kremer during their guest appearances, et al.

In 1926 he traveled with a member troupe under the leadership of Morris Brown across Chile, Peru, Cuba and Mexico, where the troupe acted, for a short time in the United States of America (Texas: El Paso, San Antonio, Dallas).
