Re: WOHL #yiddish

David Harris <dharris1@...>

In March, Marta Bertolini (see below) asked the YT&V group for information
regarding an actor with the surname WOHL.

In Zylbercweig's Lexicon of the Yiddish Theater, there is a short biography
of a Herman (Tzvi) Wohl, born September 8, 1877 near Stanislavov (then
Galicia), now Ivano Frankovsk and part of the Ukraine. The bio is written
in Yiddish and includes a picture of Herman Wohl. The article concentrates
on his theatrical background, but mentions he was the son of a shopkeeper.

If this has any bearing on Marta's search, please contact me directly.
