Avrom Trepel
 

He was born in 1908 in Minsk, White Russia.

His father was an employee.

From childhood he manifested a tendency to copy comical types, and already at the age of eleven he had written a "play" known as "a tragedy of a Jewish family", which he "put on" with youths from the cheder on an improvised stage by themselves at home.

Later he took part in the Russian and Yiddish "amateur" circle, and after debuting in Zaslavsky's troupe as "Chanan" in Anski's "The Dybbuk", he already continued as a professional actor.

In October 1923 he performed in the studio of Rafalsky in Moscow which later became transformed into the White Russian Yiddish State Theatre where he acts until now.
