Aaron Eyzenberg

 

He was born in 1892 in Lodz, Poland.

His parents were weavers.

He learned in a cheder.

In 1910 he settled in the city, and feeling an urge for the stage, he performed in an amateur group, and after a short time became a professional actor, performing throughout Poland where he acted in character-comical roles.

A. contrived the major reason -- love for the Yiddish actor in Poland, and most of the time he acted under difficult conditions, but at the same time gave joy to his viewers and listeners.

According to Idieut?, which were given up after the war, he, in one of the Yiddish ghettos was killed at the hands of the Nazis.


Sh. E. from Meir Melman.
