This is an obituary for a cousin of mine, Solomon Manne, from the Forward. I would really appreciate a full translation of the obituary.

6/27/2018 2:07 AM Too long to translate completely. But here is a quick precis.

His death has already been mentioned in the Forward.

One of the organisers of the Actors Union.

Born in Cracow.

He married in London an actress by the name of Henny, who was much younger than him. They had six children together, three boys and three girls.

He was always healthy, but in the end of his life suffered from a kidney ailment which led to his paralysis and death.
6/28/2018 8:05 AM I'm in a similar situation and wonder if I can learn anything from you. I have a great-uncle (Jack Grossman) who was an actor in the Yiddish theater in the 1920s and 1930s. I am trying to trace down something about his death, but I don't speak or read Yiddish. I guess you don't either, so I was wondering how you obtained the obituary from the Forward. Maybe you had it in your family, but if it is something you found, I would appreciate knowing how you found it. That might help me. At the moment, I'm not sure of his date of death (although I think it may be July 1973). Thanks very much for anything you might be able to share.
