Barukh Galinski


G. may have been a Bobruisker.

His parents were butchers and were very pious.

He is thought of as an intelligent [person].

He began his stage career as a chorus singer with Genfer, afterwards there becoming an actor. Later on his own he toured across the small villages of [tkhumhmushb] as the director of a small troupe.

G. used to act in lover roles, and he used to carry around the thought of acting in a Yiddish art theatre.

In 1904 G. became crazy in Odessa, and was in a mental asylum for a year. Shortly after they released him from there in 1905, he committed suicide by throwing himself under a train.


M. E. from Rose Garr, Anita Batt and Shlomo Krause.
