Death of the Silent Jew
by: Schvach Yid

Baruch Dayan haEmet.

I’ve just learned about the death of Marcel Marceau, at age 84, yesterday, Yom Kippur.

Marceau was best known for his theatrical work as a mime artist. He was born Jewish, was forced into hiding during ‘the War’, and emerged from the protective arms of the French Catholic Church safe, sound, and a bit less Jewish, according to his statements made at a National Press Club luncheon, where he appeared, with functional vocal cords, as the honored guest on several occasions.

I included a brief bio about this favored son of Judaism in one of my earlier blogs dated May 8, 2007 titled The G Word; here’s the link:

And thanks to Yisrael Medad of Arutz Sheva for posting this bit of news; here’s the link:

A more complete article was offered by BBC News at:

complete with a link to photos of the artist in performance at http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_pictures/7009202.stm .

Here is a link an account of Marceau’s experiences under the Nazis from The Canadian Press, at

May he rest in peace.
