B. was born on 10 August
1878 in Dubosar, Kherson Gubernia, Ukraine, to a
intelligent, well-to-do family. His father was a tenant
of a [seder] and a [gardener=gertner]. He received a
traditional Jewish education.
He lived his youth as an
orphan, and B. became an employee, then a carpenter. In
1903 he came to Argentina, where he worked further in
his profession. In the evenings B. was occupied with
education, and he dedicated himself at the same time to
literary work. As such B. participated almost in all the
periodic Yiddish publications in Argentina, but his [tikun]
had B. [according to H. Bloshtein] found in the drama,
in which he alone was mostly the major character, or a
close relative of the personage who he portrayed.
Of B.'s plays, there were
staged in Argentina's Yiddish theatre in 1916 "Tsvishn
tsvey feyern", in 1921, "Buenos aireser kinder", and the
one-act "Shifsfreynd" and "Di letste zind".
On 28 August 1925 B. passed
away in Buenos Aires.
After B.'s death there was a
komitet issued in 1926, for a specially
established popular fund and for a small inheritance
from the deceased, his "Geklibene shriften" [Buenos
Aires, p. 224] in a book going into a picture of the
deceased, "Beym kbr fun aharon brodsky" by H. Bloshtein,
"Nokhvort" (Brodsky's loyh) by
