Abraham Lieberman
 

 

L. was born on 28 January 1895 in Poland. He completed a four-class folkshul. Out of love for the stage, he entered into Gimpel's troupe in Lemberg, where he debuted on 20 March 1913. Afterwards he acted in Czernowitz with Akselrad, later in Vienna and then in various member troupes in Poland.

L. most of the time was employed in the various theatres as a stage director.

During the Second World War he entered into the Polish army and the struggle against the Nazis. After the war he returned to Poland with the army in Nidershlezien, and afterwards he showed up to act with the first Yiddish troupes, which had formed in the new Poland. He became sick in Wroclaw (Breslau) and after lying for a long time in the hospital he passed away in 1946 of cancer and was brought to his grave site in Wroclaw.
