Sad indeed to hear of this master's passing. I hadn't known of his Jewish roots, or that his father had died in Auschwitz. As a child, I enjoyed very much watching his performances on TV; never had the pleasure of seeing him live. "Que son ame repose en paix".

Wow, I didn't know that about him either. Thanks so much for posting.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
