His father was a haberdashery leather manufacturer, who had love for the Yiddish theatre, and G. was often accustomed to being taken there with him. This developed in him a strong desire for the stage.

G. had increased this studies, had acted and was introduced to other Yiddish actors and left with them to wander across the "medina", and thus he acted in Yiddish theatre across the various cities and shtetls of [fargresertn] Poland.

During the Second World War, he was captured and placed in a ghetto by the Nazis, and was killed there.
