M. D. Vidrevitsh
(Moshe-Dovid)


V. was born on 18 January 1867 in Vitebsk, White Russia.

His father was a businessman who gave him a traditional education.

After the wedding itself [marred take to trade?], but hadn't any success, and in the course of thirty years he was a Hebrew teacher in Warsaw.

From time to time he apparently wrote in the Hebrew and Yiddish press.

V. composed the one-act "Itshe mayd geht tsu di vahlen", "Di yudishe gmyne", and "Der shumd", which was performed for the Yiddish theatre in Poland.
