Betsalel (Sasha) Kremer


K. was born in 1905 in Vilna, Polish Lithuania.

He completed a Yiddish-Polish gymnasium.

He was a long-time regisseur for the drama circle in Vilna and in the Vilna province.

His productions had great success throughout the wide theatre world especially -- as Yechiel Burgin highlights -- it is worth mentioning that his production of "Der gulem oyf der linker zeyt" (his parody of Leivick's "Golem"), various revue programs, Peretz Hirshbein plays, et al. His theatre activity stood on an entirely high level.

After the liquidation of the Vilna Ghetto, he was sent to Klaga, Estonia.

In the beginning of the German Jewish eradication, he was killed in Radoshkovitsh.

Sh. Katsherginski remarked in short:

"Betsalel Kremer -- Young actor, Estonia, 1944".
